In brief: ?musculoskeletal

Chest pain in a 22 yo is rarely causec by heart problems ; the normal ekg's suggest your heart is fine.
Reflux or anxiety can cause chest pain that is usually squeezing or a pressure/tightness. Sharp stabbing pain makes me suspect a musculoskeletal cause. Consider seeing an osteopath who does manipulation or a good chiropractor- see http://bit.Ly/1kgd0xp acupuncture or homeopathy may also help.

In brief: Maybe

The good news is , it appears your heart is stable and not causing your pains.
A good history and physical should now slowly start to get the real diagnosis pinpointed, which certainly could include acid reflux ("heart burn"-pyrosis), or anxiety...Both of which the h;p exam should be able to diagnose more easily. Let dr. Know if stressed or if any trigger foods cause it, etc. Best wishes.

In brief: Yes

Your 3 normal ekgs and age make your heart an unlikely source of your pain.
Cough, muscle stretch, acid reflux, and anxiety are all likely contributing factors.
