Chest pains for 5 months that come and go and last for seconds?

Hi i am a male 5'10 185 lbs. and exercise regularly. I smoked weed for fifteen years but pretty muched stopped since sept. of 2010. I have smoked since maybe once a week but will not anymore. Anyway i have been having these chest pains that lasts for seconds and come and go only when i am relaxing like watching t.v. oron the computer for five months now..When i go to the gym and run and lift weights i feel great, like really great. But when i am at home or say at the grocery store i get these chest pains that hurt real bad. It feels like a horse kicks me in the chest or sometimes like a real bad burning feeling. It is located on my left side on the center and sometimes under my left arm on my chest. It does not spread through my whole chest. Had numerous Ekg's done, blood work, chest x-rays and a treadmill stress test. All came back (-) except an rbbb during my stress test. Dr. said not to worry that i did excellent on my stress test. What can this be? It only lasts for seconds and comes and goes. Some days i do not get it at all. Other days  i feel like it is waiting to happen during the day and it will happen a few times. I go back for a holter moniter in a few days and then an echo the next day. Is this something serious ? Why do i feel so good when i work out and exercise? I did have a lot of stress last year but this happens when i do not even stress about anything. Please Help? I only stress when i get these pains also. Thanks.

Also The pain started out as a burning type pain but now it feels like a bruising type pain without touching my chest or like a horse kicked me in my chest. It just comes on real hard and goes after a few seconds.

Well i went to the gym last night and felt great, other than i amsuffering from a cold. I cant breathe through my nose and could not sleep all night because i had trouble breathing. About 1 a.m. i had this really deep hard chest pain that only lasted a second. I got up and could not sleep the rest of the night. Does anyone have any clue to what this might be. Please please help. I know sometimes dr's cant even figuyre out whats going on.

You've had heart tests done which turned out negative and that's good news. There's also musculoskeletal problems to consider or a stomach problem like GERD. You may have to go back to your doctor to find out.

Recently as soon as i lay down i get a real bed chest pain that only lasts a few seconds and the past two mornings as soon as i am waking up form bed i get a real bad sharp chest pain. Anyone else have these problems? This is scaring me because just because i am only 35 dr's think it is nothing when in fact how can a healthy young man who is having chest pains be o.k.? If you are younger and your body is telling you something, shouldnt dr's take that more serious?
