I have been having pain in my left chest. It feels like someone is jabbing me with their finger. It is almost always there. And sometimes more intense. I had blood work, EKG and x-ray done. All came back normal. I had a heart flutter early today while sitting. It lasted about 10 seconds, and took my breath for a second. I do have hypothyroidism, and take 150mcg of levothyroxine daily. When my thyroid is acting up, I do have heart flutters. But never that intense.
What should I do? What tests should I ask for?

My thoughts go to gas and/or gallbladder actually. Do you notice the pain more after a meal or at different times of day?

Have you considered the possibility of GERD/acid reflux?

I do have acid reflux. The pain isn't near my esophagus. Behind my left breast area. It's definitely not that. Doesn't burn. Feels like someone is poking me with their finger.

Floridamissy, just a thought, perhaps its time to see your endocrinologist for your thyroid. If that checks out ok, then perhaps visit your gp & see if he/she will refer you to a cardiologist. He may or may not consider doing an echo of the heart. You are concerned so perhaps seeing the drs will help get to the bottom of this. Take care.
