What is this and what could cause it?

Im 28 and have been getting chest pain for a month. The first three days were sharp stabing pain that seemed random. After that it changed to a steady dull heavy ache that continues even now. When the pain changed I went to the ER.

Treatments:
Asprin
fluids
oxygen
2 nitrus or whatever those tiny pills you put under your tounge are called
morphine 4mg

Tests:
Xray-came up clean
contrast CT-came up clean
EKG-various ST/T readings on three different machines

Doctor told me I have strain on my heart and worse twards the lower part of my heart and cant find a cause - more tests to follow.

Symptoms:
Chest pain-dull heavy on a 1-10 its a 3
fatigue
dizzy and out of breath on occasion
once I had left arm and neck pain it was deep and throbing pain a 5 That was two days ago and it went away after7 min.

Please give me whatever info may help. I have a little girl and am terrified I will fall over dead.

  • Did a little digging and did find one thing. Aperantly heart strain nothing but a catch-all for there is something wrong with your heart and we dont know what. Anyone out there know what can with a clean ct scan put strain on the lower part of your heart?
