I am a 24 year old female who is relatively healthy despite being overweight. For about the past 6 months or so I have been having chest pain ranging from mild to bad. It can happen on either side of my chest, not necessarily where my heart is and sometimes a lot higher than my heart. It is sometimes a dull, aching pain. Other times it's more of a sharp, stabbing pain. Occasionally one or both arms will also have a throbbing pain as well. It seems to happen mostly at night (not always, though) and when I am sitting or laying down. If I get up and walk around it usually helps a lot. I tend to have a lot of anxiety about things like this so a lot of times I can work myself up into a frenzy and make the pain that much worse. I went to the ER twice a few months ago thinking I was having a heart attack, only to be told the first time that it was pleurisy and the second that it is GERD. I did take (prescription) Prevacid for a while but it did not help the chest pain at all. I went back to my regular doctor and he gave me Xanax for the anxiety and decided it might be fibromyalgia and I was sent to a rheumatologist. The rheumatologist diagnosed me with xyphoidalgia, but I do not necessarily agree with that. The Xanax is helpful when I am having episodes that are exceptionally bad. It does calm me down and thus relieve some of the discomfort. I have had an echocardiogram (everything was fine, excepting a leaky valve that I have), a D-dimer has been done, I've had all other blood tests, EKGs, my blood pressure is fine (but slightly low), etc. and everything has been fine. Now, the last couple weeks I have been experiencing a throbbing pain in my left leg when I am lying down at night. It is extremely painful at times. I do have some varicose veins in both legs, though I'm not sure that's related as they are totally nonpainful. Now, could the leg and chest pain be related? And if so is it indicative of any kind of cardiovascular problem? I realize all the tests I've had done point to there being absolutely nothing wrong with my heart, but I have incredible anxiety about it and no one seems to know what my chest pain means.
