Over a year ago I started suffering with these chest pains. They just started out of the blue, nothing I could put my finger on as to what started them.
I'm a 20 year old female, healthy, I don't smoke or drink.
The pain is right in the middle of my chest where my rib cage meets if that makes any sense. It just comes all of a sudden with no warning at all and last for around 5-15 minutes then just goes! (one time it lasted 40mins & the paramedics were called). It's excruciating to the point where I'm in tears and find it difficult to breathe.
I booked an appointment with my dr and over the past year I've had ECG, MRI, Endoscopy & Biopsy all clear no problems at all? They first said it could be IBS/GERD and I was put on the FODMAP diet and RENITADINE which did nothing at all for my pain.
A couple of months ago I was discharged from my hospital and they said there was no more procedures they could do as everything was coming back clear, so they said it could be an anxiety/stress problem and gave me some tablets called AMITRIPTYLINE, at first I thought they were working until I started with the pain again. I'm now at a lose end and don't know what else do to.. Has anyone else got something like this or any answers?
Thank You & sorry it was long I just need to explain the whole situation.
