I am a 56 yr old female non smoker for past 2 yrs., drink socially, weight 165, height 5'6". I have been suffering from episodes of severe chest pain for past 15 years, these attacks come on suddenly and last for about 15-25 minutes. The attacks can be as much as a year appart to a coupld days apart. I spray nitro on the onset under my tongue rt at the onset. The pain is excruciating, on the onset I feel strange feeling in jaw which radiates behind my ears and withing seconds I am suffering from severe chest pain which feels like my chest is in a vice sqeezed as tight as possible. I have gone to ER, have been admitted, have had heart cath, EKG's, bloodwork which all come back negative. Dr's think it is not coming from my heart but rather from esophogus spasms even tho i do not suffer acid reflux or any regurgitation with these pains. Any thoughts?? Scared to death of suffering a stroke some day!
