Wed, Feb 27 5:29pm · Ongoing Chest Pain with normal tests in Heart & Blood Health

Im hoping that someone here has some advice or insight. Im 35, male, in good shape. I have been having daily chest pain for a couple months now. I'll use today as an example. All day I felt perfectly fine. Woke up early, got the kid off to school, and worked out. Rode the stationary bike for 60 minutes. Heart and chest felt fine for the entire time. Rest of the day went fine. Until around 1430. Sitting in a meeting I feel my heart flutter/skip a beat, and feel a tingle throughout my entire body. The feeling is extremely uncomfortable and unsettling. Along with a short spell of dizziness, I immediately have anxiety. 10 minutes later I continue to have chest burning/discomfort that continues on to my back, and headache. 10 minutes after that it starts to settle, but even 90 minutes later I still have chest and back discomfort and random palpitations (that I attribute to anxiety from the initial episode). This will probably last the rest of the day, or at least until I work out again. Thats the weirdest part to both me and my cardiologist. When my HR is elevated and I am working out, I feel fantastic. The majority of the time when I feel these cardiac episodes (all of the times I can think of), I am at rest. Pain and discomfort will radiate to my back, arms, neck, and jaw. Dizzy and lightheaded. A few months ago I went to the ER with one of these episodes. EKG was fine, troponin test was negative. ER doc said to follow up with primary. Primary performed another EKG that also came back normal. Referred to cardiologist, who ran multiple tests. Bloodwork showed nothing, Holter monitor showed some pvcs or pacs but nothing significant. Echo and stress test also didn't show anything significant. I can't seem to figure out what is going on, but I'm pretty sure is not gastro. Multiple antacids have offered no relief. I can physically feel my heart having these episodes when they happen. I don't know what to do, but the associated anxiety is horrible. I can't even go to sleep, because I am convinced that my heart is going to stop while I am asleep.

Also, I have daily headaches that can come with the episodes, or present on their own.

I have a lot of the same issues. I am 35 y/o male. For months now I have dealt with random chest pain/discomfort. These can sometimes last the majority of the day. Occasionally, this discomfort will be accompanied by a sensation in my left arm. It almost feels like the muscle is going numb. Also, the chest discomfort can radiate into my back. I've found that my resting HR can frequent dip into the low 40s. More nights than not I will wake up with these chest issues. This sets off the anxiety and it's all downhill from there. GP sent me to cardiologist. Holter monitor and echo stress test. Can't seem to diagnose anything. Does anyone have any insight into what could be going on if it's non-cardio as they are suggesting? I am sick of reading the same old "your chest pain could be serious, go see a doctor". The anxiety makes sleep almost impossible since I'm convinced I'll have a heart attack in my sleep. One weird part of this is the fact that when my HR is elevated in excersise, I feel the best. The chest pain is gone, and stays fine for a while. Worst time is when I'm completely at rest. I hope someone has some insight.
