Sudden severe chest pain

I have been experiencing crushing chest pain that happens randomly, but is not frequent. During the pain episodes, I feel as if a train had just crushed my thoracic cage. I also experience nausea and sweating, since it hurts that much. Breathing is difficult as well.

Before the onset of the pain (which usually grows gradually and very slowly), it's as if a bowel movement was forthcoming.

Pain can only be relieved by Tylenol extra strength. At least that's what I found out at the hospital.

During my appointment at the doctor's office a few weeks ago, they took a few radiographic images, but they didn't find anything. I tried taking a prolonged break from the gym, but that didn't cure it either.

Any ideas ?
