Hello Kitty and welcome to HealingWell . You have received some very good advice from some of our wonderful members. I am going to post a link to an old post that might help you.
Read through it and you may see some ideas that will work for you.
I agree that if all your tests have come back normal you are most likely having anxiety and seeing your Pdoc is a wonderful and positive step for you to make.
Keep posting here and we will help you all we can. Again a warm welcome to the A & P Family.

Chest pain, chest heaviness or discomfort, is usually related to an anxiety disorder, panic attacks, or tension. After ruling out a heart attack, most cases usually turn out to be caused by an anxiety disorder, muscle pain, indigestion, and sometimes nerve pain.
Give us more info on the medicine if you would like to share. What is the med, I am not sure if your talking something for the anxiety or a Proton Pump Inhibitor such as Priosec?
I am sorry you are frightened and I know anytime we have a not so pleasant experience with a doctor it makes us anxious about returning or seeking out help. Please remember we are our own best advocates.
Please feel free to emails me if you have a need. I would be glad to listen.
