Bad chest pain radiating to back and down left arm. Went to ER & normal Troponin, normal EKG, normal chest X-Ray & normal D-Dimer. What could it be?
See below. Chest pain can result from organs in the chest: heart, lungs, pleura and from the chest wall: costochondritis. Heart conditions range from coronary artery blockage(less likely at 19 years old) to mitral valve prolapse and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. Insufficient information to give specific advice.

GI? Muscle? Probably the most common non-cardiac pain in a young man is caused by esophageal spasm, reflux or gastritis. Muscle strain/cramp can also cause this. The chest x-ray should have excluded something serious like aorta problems. I see you do have anxiety...anxiety can also be at the root of chest pain like this. Practice your relaxation techniques, use meds as directed, see your therapist/counselor.

Often cardiac symptoms do not produce abnormal ekg, x-ray or blood testing in the emergency room. You are of an age, with classic worrisome symptoms, that it's worth the time & effort. Read more...
