I am a 29 year old male, in reasonable health; I have been having chest pain for a number of years since I was about 15.
For a few years it was put down to growing pains, then G.E.R.D, this was ruled out a number of years ago when I had a camera down my throat and everything was opening and closing fine.
The chest pains start in the centre of my chest normally with pain towards the left side of my chest bone; I also get pain in the middle of my back. I sweat and I sometimes get pins and needles.
I have ended up at A&E with these pains on 10+ occasions, I have ECG’s, blood tests and the doctors check me over and I always get the same response that apart from slightly high blood pressure they can find nothing wrong with me.
The pains normally happen on the occasions I will list, every time I have been abroad, I do not like flying, I have ended up in hospital / medical centre. Normally the following evening after drinking not heavily these pains began no pain while drinking. These used to be the 2 main times it would happen.
But lately the chest pains begin when I get to work, I work late normally 16:00 – midnight. I am fine during the day when I am at home, I sit down then I can feel the pain.
I have been cycling 15 miles a day for the last year without the chest pains. And the whole time I’m active and doing something I am fine, it just seems to start when I am relaxing.
Could anyone help or give me any indication of what you think it may be?
