Chest Pain
Mon, 06-06-2005 - 11:29pm

I have chest pain that comes and goes - just beneath my breast bone - it is a kind of blip or beat of pain. This happens sparatically (sp?) Once every 10 minutes or so sometimes I will have a few blips within 5 min and then none for hours. This will last a week or so at a time and then go away - I get this 2-3 times a year. I have been journaling when I get the pains to see if there is a pattern and I cannot see one. I have been to my dr. had an EKG and a chest x-ray - all normal. My dr keeps telling me to see a counceler and I don't feel like he as explored all the options for the source of my pain. I was wondering if you all had any ideas. I would love your help - I think I will go for a second opinion as well -
