I need some help.
i have been having left sided chest pain or the past two years. I have had 3 ECG's, 3 Chest X-rays, and given nearly 60 vials of blood. After all of this, there is still no answer.
I have seen 3 different Dr's, all of which have tested me for lots of things, but nothing comes of it.
I get a very sharp pain in my chest, left sided, near the armpit. It will often feel like a big needle is being driven through my chest into my back. I have gained a few pounds since this has started, and am a smoker (1/2 pack per day) No drinking EVER, or drugs EVER.
I have found lately that my BP is going up, and my pulse that is normally 82 is now in the 100 range.
I get a bloated feeling, dull pains in the abdomen, and the urge to belch lots to relieve the pressure. I have also had a upper GI barium x-ray lately, and was told that I have a narrowing esophagus. Is it possible that this could be a Gallbladder issue?

Any ideas will help. I have been told that it can't be that serious, because after 2 years, it would have presented itself more.
