I've had chest pain on the left side for awhile now. I've had blood work, EKG, echocardiogram and everything is normal. Heart related? I'm 26.
Not so fast. I would not go on an exhaustive, expensive shot gun approach to the many many different causes of chest pain. more history can help differentiate most of them. if it has been "awhile" it is not likely a life threatening issue like PE, dissection, heart attack, etc. doing unnecessary testing gives people more stress and anxiety sometimes, Not saying ignore, but be prudent. given age reassuring.
