My 16 year old daughter has been having severe chest pain with exercise. For the past 7 weeks. Many tests have been negative. What could be the cause?

In brief: Chest pain

In a 16 year old musculoskeletal pain is the likely cause.
A history, physical, and the lab data are needed to speculate further.

In brief: Ge reflux

It is well known that exercise is associated with gastrointestinal reflux can running inducess the most reflux, and aerobic exercises with less bodily agitation (bicycle) produce less reflux.
The above is said if other causes such as musculoskeletal and cardiac have been excluded. Ugi or gastric emptying can sometimes confirm this issue, or just symptomatic treatment.
