I've had a heart cath done and it came out clear and the gastroenterology test I had done also came out clear, what could the chest pain be?

I'd suggest a full OBGYN exam to find what is acting in some respects like pregnancy. Hopefully, an OBGYN here will give advice too. But it's worth a good exam to find out. Best! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
