Why did you have the CT angio initially? This is somewhat concerning for dissection and if you're able to access emergency care please do so, especially if you have some risk factor or predisposition for aneurysm or dissection. The normal BP is reassuring, but is that in general or recently?
Dr. Elden Rand

Continuous pattern for over 7 days does not sound consistent with acute coronary artery ischemic (blockage) pain. Need to be concerned of pain from aorta, could be nerve compression, or a muscle problem. Go in and get checked out by a physician.
Dr. Steven Mccornack

No injury or causative factors? A thorough exam would be helpful. Could be musculoskeletal such as a strain or tear of muscle. Might also be a cervical spine issue. A cardiac issue is also possible.
