I am 56 years old and for 17 months now I have suffered with chest pain/discomfort. I can best describe the pain like the pain you get in your side after running or the pain you get in your back after leaning over something for a long time but it's in the center of my chest and radiates across my chest and sometimes in my back. I have had a stress test, heart cath & an echo stress test. All of these came back O.K. so my Dr(s) are pretty confident it's not my heart. They only thing that they did find was that one of my arteries in my heart if small. It isn't clogged, just small. The pain is so severe at times that if I didn't know better, I would swear I was having a heart attack.
My Dr. had me try medication for acid reflux but that didn't help either. When the pain gets really bad, if I sit down and "stretch out" my chest or lie down it helps but doesn't go away completely.
