Chest pain with normal heart rate and blood pressure

About a year ago I started having discomfort in my chest.  I was 32 years old and very alarmed.  After two visits to the ER (Once kept over night for observation), I also had several EKG's, a stress test, an echocardiogram, full blood work, an ultrasound of my abdominal area and a CT Angiogram all of which came back "normal".  My Family Doctor and Cardiologist have said it is not a heart issue but did put me on 75 mg of Metoprolol (50 in the morning and 25 at night) for elevated blood pressure and heart rate.  Both are in the normal range now, but I still have fairly regular chest discomfort and lightheadedness, some days are better than others.  Any advice on what I should do?  Thanks for your time.

I would ask my cardiologist for an event monitor. The 30 day monitor is pricy but best case it could give you some peace of mind. I've worn them twice. Once before and once after heart surgery. It's a chore but worth the trouble sometimes.

Do you have dyspnea too?
