Unlikely heart. : Based on the information you provided, it does not sound like a heart issue. Could be GI, such as heartburn or esophageal spasm, but I would assume that pain to be more intermittent and related to eating. Could be muscular. Could be lung-related; negative chest X-ray encouraging but not definitive. Could be from the breast, too. May want to consider a chest CT and mammogram.
