Angina is serious: It appears you have had a thorough evaluation, or not. But all that said if they have absolutely made sure that the chest pain is not from your heart then you need further evaluation to see what is causing this discomfort. Despite pots our best evaluations there is always a small percentage of having a heart event but this depends on your risk factors which your doctor should discuss in detail
