Hello, Susan!  While I am no doctor, I have had similiar pains that seem to come and go for no reason.  It's been about 6 months for me, I've been to the ER several times and all tests (chest x-ray, EKG and blood tests)came back fine.  Unfortunately, there is a wide range of causes of chest pain and it would be impossible for someone to diagnose you through a message.  I would suggest you go to your doctor and let them run tests, to find out exactly what is causing it.  But I agree it is very annoying and if you worry about it too much, you could possibly perpetuate your pains.  Go to the doctor to be sure.  Have a blessed day!
