I'm sorry I can't answer your question.  I also take b12 shots - I take mine every 2 weeks, but I do not experience chest pains.  I do have some shortness of breath, but I also have Hashimoto's thyroiditis/hypothyroidism and shortness of breath is often an issue with that.  I, too, have just gone through an echocardiogram and CT w/angiogram.  These tests turned up some issues, but I'm told those issues would not cause the symptoms I have.  

I have never had gastric bypass, so do not know what side effects there might be from that.  I would suggest that you talk to your doctor for the information as I believe that any and all chest pains/shortness of breath have the potential to be dangerous.  Your doctor would be the only one who would know your particular situation.
