  • I have heart pains too. Almost feels like a muscle cramp at times.. My old dr told me it was caused by too much calcium in my muscle tissue fibers,(not in my blood ) Said it would never show on a test because the muscle would appear smooth or normal during an actual event. To prevent major heart muscle damage I take a calcium channel blocker daily and an extra one when having the pains. My heart specialist after listening to me carefully then doing all tests he wanted and monitoring my heart agreed . He said first doc was right it would never show on a test until a major event destroys part of the heart muscle. I take the generic for procardia (Nifedipine).. Hope this helps you also baby aspirin helps sometimes too. .
