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?
Other tests needed: Which gastroenterology test did you have? A negative upper endoscopy does not rule out a GI source of chest pain.

But I don't think you had a fully negative GI workup with just an endoscopy. ...Read more

Gastroenterology: Does an endoscopic ultrasound of the pancreas usually require general anesthesia of the patient or can there be twilight sleep?
Outside my area!: I'm not an expert on this - but, even if I had a knowledgeable POV - it would mean nothing for your case.
