Mild left chest pain

Hi, I'm 24 years old with no medical history. it all started at February when while I was in my bed awake, I got abdominal pain. not very severe (3 of 10). in the next couble days I had pain at the lower left chest ( a little bit under the nipple) . I went to the er the other night as the pain continued with some dizziness. They did an EKG and didn't find anything except that I was having around 110 heart beat. The doctor told me it was just over tiring my heart and thus the pain. she gave a heart relaxing shot and I left. Next day I had this burning feeling in the center of my chest so I went to a different hospital. They did an EKG again and she gave me some pills for stomach acids. Anyway the chest pains continued and I did a barium x ray which came back normal. I still get this mild chest pain, at the very left side ( below my armpit and below my nipple ) and it scares me out for a heart problem. I also get a tingling sensation on my left arm. the pain is constant and usually gets worse through the day. does this indicate a heart problem or it's my esophagus? I'm nervous cause my barium x ray came back normal ( no acid reflux ). so that means the problem is elsewhere? ( heart )
