For over the past 12 months I have been experiencing intermittent chest pains that can be described at times as shooting and other times as an ache or discomfort and have a tendency to move around my chest. When the pain/ache/sensation occurs around the left side of my chest (heart area) I get extremely worried. I also have occasional soreness around the sternum area of my rib cage and back pain as well. When this first started last year I went to A & E twice and subsequently had blood tests, chest x-ray and numerous ECGs. In December of last year I began to experience stomach pains and was diagnosed with Gastritis and was given a course of Omeprazole which cleared it up. It was at this time I was also diagnosed with a heart murmur and had an echocardiogram and cardiac MRI. That was back in February and I am still suffering from some sort of chest pain on a daily basis. I have been back to the GP three times since then (seen locums) and they only offer me anti-depressants as I also have a history of anxiety. I am 46 years old and try to stay active through swimming, walking and cycling. Has anyone else had a similar experience like this or offer suggestions?
