Second opinion: If you have a clear cardiac catheterization report, it is very difficult for you to have chest pain due to coronary artery disease. Seek other causes of chest pain not cardiac related. One of these is esophageal reflux disease e). Speak to the cardiologist (c) who did you cardiac tests and get the c's opinion. See physician to see if e is the cause of your pain and, if so, get treated for it.

Many other causes: Chest pain even mild has many benign causes and some very serious causes. It could be muscular, gastrointestinal, pulmonary etc. Don't be lulled into false sense of security until all other causes of the pain are ruled out. See your family physician and have him/her get a good history from you and perform a through exam and maybe order some more tests.
