I have daily chest pain left right middle and sharp at time. I also have burning from throat to stomach at times and random dizzy spells or a feeling of falling. What is this and why can anyone help me out

Hi there!

With negative EKGs and stress test throughout, this is unlikely to be a cardiac issue. Possibilities that may need to be considered include GI infections, inflammations, GI motility issues/ spasms, chest wall inflammation, costochondritis, pleuritis, causes related to the respiratory tract, stress/ anxiety etc. I would suggest considering a detailed evaluation by an internist initially and depending on the cause diagnosed/ suspected, it can be managed accordingly or specialist care may be sought.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
