I have been experiencing chest pain consistently for about 5 years. When i first experienced it i was suffering from anorexia and was drinking alcohol almost every night to excess. The pain is usually sharp and i get it several times a week. i have also experienced pain in my arm and jaw and have had tightness and trouble breathing.
I am no longer under weight or abusing alcohol but i still experience pain. The first doctor i went to chalked it up to anxiety because my EKGs are normal and prescribed zoloft. This did not help. I moved and recently got a new doctor who sent me to a cardiologist. My EKGs were normal, and so was my holter monitor and echo. I was then again put on anxiety meds that have not relieved the pain.
Alcohol and dehydration definitely trigger the pain, but i also experience it when i dont have any drinks and my fluids are good.
