Chest pain in the ER: There are many causes of chest pain. Some are dire emergencies while others are from minor conditions. In an er we are mainly concerned with making sure you don't require emergency intervention. It can be frustrating for patients when all of our er tests are normal. However this is always good news! even if a final answer to your symptoms is not found in the er, for many it is place to start.
