sensations in chest


  i have been having strange sensations in my left chest area for some time
  now, meaning more than 2 years.
  i am not sure if my situation could be serious.
  i experience pvc's, and have seen more than one doctor including a cardiologist.
  i have had a sonogram, a stress test, x-rays, and not one doctor has seen
  anything they considered unusual.
  i am currently taking metoprolol in a very low dosage (50 mg. daily).
  i feel pains several times a day always in that one part of the chest
  (close to the left nipple)and they subside.
  these sensations come whether or not i'm moving, i can be sitting still
  and have them.
  i don't want to have to see another doctor since i have seen so many already.
  please advise me if i'm worrying too much, and if there's anything else i
  should do.
  if you need more information let me know, i'll answer.
  thanks for your time.

Dear John,
You are definitely worrying too much, NO DOUBT ABOUT THAT!  But it is hard for anyone to deal with
even twinges of pain on a daily basis, please remind yourself everytime it happens that you have had the best tests there are
for heart evaluation and they are NEGATIVE-which means your likelihood of dropping dead of a heart attack or the like is NILL.
You obviously need something to take you mind off of the discomfort you feel, why don't you concentrate on staying healthy and on keeping your
heart healthy with the right diet and exercise program?  Good Luck.
