Chest Tightness
Hello All,

For the past 6 months I have had a tight feeling in my left chest, sometimes to the left of my chest, and sometimes more in the middle. I have seen a cardiologist, and had an Echocardiogram, Multiple EKG's, a 24 hour holter monitor, a stress test and a stress echo in addition to a CT Angiography.

All has come back normal. I still have the tightness in my chest and I feel short of breath a lot of the time. Other symptoms I am experienceing are lightheadeness, and fatigue.

Can this still be a heart problem, or do those tests rule that out?

Thanks!

I've been having the same symtoms: chest pain like yours, fatigue, but no headache or sob.  I also had EKG, stress test, stress echo, regular echo, full body scan...all came back normal; although, the regular echo's suspected that i might have pulmonary hypertention because the pa pressure was 41mmgHg.  I was terrifed, but the cardiologist assured me that i don't have pulmonary hypertention because the 41mmgHg was an overestimation (he said the technician who did the echo measured it wrong).  But still, i'm still worried about having pulmonary hypertention.
