About 8-9 months ago I started to have very small and irregular chest pains on my left side. They were very small and I didn" think much of them. Now I constantly have chest pains all day. It feels like when someone lays over your chest when you are laying down. So the tightness and pressure is always there all day, every day. In addition to that I also get sporadic and severe pain in the same spot. It doesnt matter what I am doing at the time. I have had the sharp pains when I am laying down or when I am at work lifting heavy things. I have had ekg's, stress tests and pulminary function tests and have been told each and every one has come out normal. I was then put on some kind of acid reflux pill and that did absolutely nothing. And yes I was also very carefull not to eat anything remotely spicy for a long time and i still get the constant pressure, tightness and sharp pain. Please if any one has any clue to help point me in the right direction so I can finally get this under control I would be extremely grateful. Especially since all of my doctors have been less than helpfull and more than annoying. thank you
