Welcome to the chronic pain forum. I'm a bit out of it tonight but wanted to respond because chest pain is certainly something not to be ignored. It sounds like your doctor has ruled out any possible cardiovascular issues? If you're not absolutely sure of that, then at least call the ER to report your symptoms and see what they say.
There have been some recent threads on something called costochondritis (sp?) - I'm not sure if I've got the name right as I don't suffer from it, but others here do. It does seem to be related to chest muscle pain. You might try searching the threads - I think there's something in the most recent few pages. Hopefully someone who knows more than I do will also respond. Just be sure the serious problems have been ruled out.
