I have been having chest pain for the past week and I went to the emergency room twice and they ran several tests on me. They ran and ekg, x-rays, urine and blood test and couldn't diagnose what was causing my chest pain.?

May never find out: The key is that all the causes of chest pain that can kill you (coronary artery occlusion, pulmonary thromboembolus, aortic root tear, pneumonia, collapsed lung) weren't present. Many physicians are unfamiliar with a severe chest pain syndrome in young adult caused by an odd reaction to a common virus (pleurodynia). Chest wall pain is often undiagnosable.

Chest xray?: Did you have a chest x-ray? It would make sense that among all the other tests you mentioned they would have done a chest xray to r/o a pneumothorax or a pneumonia. It is possible this is reflux, so you can try some antacids like Tums (calcium carbonate) to see if it helps. Another possiblility is costochondritis, an inflammation of the joints between the ribs and the breast bone. Usually ibuprofen helps with that ...Read more

Have pain right side under my ribs, radiates to the back. Comes and goes. Interupts my day life. Trace blood in urine. Hist stones dr say muscles skel?

Possible renal stone: Intermittent pain in the side, radiating to the back, and associated with blood in the urine, can be due to a urinary tract stone. This can be very uncomfortable. There are certainly other possible causes, but an x-ray to look for a stone would be worthwhile. A CT scan without contrast is the best way to find a small stone. ...Read more

Stabbing chest pains, increased anxiety, history of depression, itching, 2 weeks smoke free? Blood urine heart chest X-ray all clear. Worrying?!

Chest pain: The likely answer is Anxiety mediated, but I do not know you, especially over the computer, so chest pain needs to be seen to rule out cardiac. If probable anxiety as suspected and you have an itch too, then Hydroxyzine HCL is non-addicting, and FDA approved for both anxiety and itching, so your Dr. may "kill 2 birds with one stone." Best wishes. ...Read more

Was yesterday in the ER because. Of chest pain, low diuresis and low BP(I have high BP).ECG normal, Troponins and Urine normal. Ended me home.BP persist low (105-65). What could that be? I don't feel dizzy. Txs

Low BP: I see that you're on 2 medications for hypertension. You need to contact your own physician and tell him/her about your blood pressure -- your medication doses probably need adjusting or changing. Bp's in the range of 105/65 are not unhealthy, except that your body isn't used to them. It's good you went to er since you had chest pain, and I'm glad your heart studies were normal. ...Read more

Also, kidney stones can become infected from pyelonephritis (kidney infection — not a typical urinary tract infection (uti)) and be challenging treating.
