Anxiety?: Chest pain without substantial cardiac or pulmonary disease with several er visit raise the question about anxiety attacks. Other possibility is acid reflux diseases. Please talk to your primary physician.

Work with your doc: If you've visited the er multiple times with chest pain but they haven't found signs of heart disease, is this not a relief? I understand that you still feel ill, but there can be other explanations for your symptoms besides heart disease. Please work with your own physician to clarify. One possible cause could even be anxiety and/or panic attacks -- there are good treatments for these, too.
