MissiBee, I to have had chest pains like you have described. I have been suffering from them since I was nine. I had many doctors speculate what they were from, but never a definite answer. They gave me a chest x-ray, ECG, and the breath test where they test how much air you can blow. Nothing showed up so my doctor just prescribed a broncho-diolater. Haven't used it in over a year. I have never found out what has caused them, but January of this year while I was7 months pregnant had blood clots in my lungs. I'm not sure if they are connected or not.
You commented that you just moved to a new province. I live in BC. We have an ok so so health care system here. Although I hate doctors in general. They just want to fill me up with pills and get me out of their office as fast as they can. I'm still in the process of finding a new and better G.I.
