Center of chest pain

mrb5150 posted:
For 3months have been having pain in the middle of my chest, sometimes just continuous and sometimes off and on. It just comes out of nowhere, I don't even have to eat anything @ all and it just comes on, @ times it can feel like I am having a heart attack. I do have coronary artery disease, have had 2 angiograms,Mir is not my heart. I have had an endoscopy which didn't show Gerd or any esophagus problems, it did show where my food is not digesting properly. I was put on a medication called reglan which helped a little, but I believe it caused me to have anxiety attack. I seem to keep getting tossed from dr. To dr.

What do you mean with your words 'where my food is not digesting properly?'

Chest pain can also be due to esophageal spasms. They result in many describing it as a heart attack.
