Focus on noncardiac : Your workup sounds extensive for assessing cardiac causes for chest pain. Negative results suh as you describe would imply that your symptoms are due to a noncardiac cause. In patients with negative cardiac work ups for cp, about 1/3 rd of the time symptoms are due to GI causes, 1/3 rd due to musculoskeletal/pleural causes, and 1/3rd due to anxiety or neuropsychiatric causes.
