It's been a bit over two years that I have been suffering from recurring chest pains. The only way to describe the pain is that it is an upper-left chest dull pain that lasts for 2-3 seconds and recurs after 1-2 seconds for a total duration of 10-15 seconds. Those incidents can take place 10-30 times during a day and usually occur from morning to afternoon (rarely during the evening/night). The pain does not seem to be affected/caused by movement, exercise, food consumption, alcohol consumption etc.
My overall health condition is not good as I am 33yo, overweight (100kg for 1.71cm height), and I suffer from moderate hypertension (taking a daily pill to keep the blood pressure under control), sleep apnoeas and a fatty liver. I am also consuming alcohol regularly (avg. of half a bottle of wine per day) and I exercise 1-2 times per week (some kind of team sport or swimming).
I have visited two GPs and nobody could find what is wrong and why these pains occur. My blood test results came back clean except for slightly elevated values of the liver-related transaminases due to the fatty liver. I have had extensive heart-related exams with my cardiologist last year as well as a liver fibroscan and all the results were fine.
The only recommendation I have received from all those doctors is to lose weight which is easier said than done.
However I do feel something is wrong with me and would be grateful if anyone could point me to the right direction.
Thank you all.
