    I have bad chest pains, usually to my left and it feels like my breast hurts also. I do feel gas and my stomache aches as well. It comes and goes. I have been to the ER several times and they say I'm okay. One time they said it could be that I have a pulled muscle. The pain does radiate under my arm sometimes, and I do find myself burping a lot. But the chest pain is bad and mostly to the left. What could it be?

    I'm glad you've gotten this checked and had heart issues ruled out. Have you seen a doctor about this? I had similar symptoms years ago that would radiate to my back. It took me a long time to figure out that simethicone (ie. Gas-X) fixes this dramatically. You should discuss your symptoms with your doctor and see if there are any over the counter or prescription medications he would recommend.
