Sharp/tight/burning pain in left side of chest. Feel it in back too. Good EKG, stress test, heart enzymes, and chest xray. 21, active. Heart issue?

Possibly... More tests may be indicated. If you still have symptoms (for which you had all these tests), ask your doctor to send you to a cardiologist who will take your H&P and possibly order other tests, such as Holter monitoring, electrophysiology studies, echocardiogram, and others as clinically indicated by careful cardiological examination.

Like any pain, looking at what triggers it, pretty much says what it is. Deep breaths--respiratory system including lungs/lining of lungs and diaphram. touching/moving--> muscles.
