Started the chest pains about 2 weeks ago. Went to doc and stated was inflamation of the ribs. Got light headed, sweating, felt like I was going to vomit, and the chest pain. Went to ER said is was possible Acid Reflux. Now 3 days later still have chest pain, on Nexium with no change. EKG, blood tests and stress test all came back negative for heart condition/problem. I just want the pain to stop, I'm 35, in the military and the clinic on base is no help, they just keep saying, go to the ER if you experience problems. Need guidance as these pains are scaring not only me, but my wife as well.View Thread
