    have a dull tight pain in middle chest and throat. I may have it for a week or 2 then it goes away and comes back about every two weeks now. This has been happening for about 6 years. I have had endoscoy twice, EKG & stress test they were okay. It makes me fill like I need to take deep breaths alot. I am on lisinopril and maxide for blood pressure and estrogen patch. Do you have any ideas. I have been going to LA fitnees 6 days a week for 30 years and my cho;estrol is ok, my HDL is 71. Can you help

    Hi Julia:  It sounds like you have been worked up pretty extensively.  I'd want to know more about the pain, what relieves it, food, activity, etc.   if your stress test was a regular stress or a imaging stress study.  This might be important. 


    It might be helpful to get further studies:  MRI of chest, lung function tests, etc depending on what the symptoms are that alter this symptom.


    Your doctor should be able to answer these questions. 


    Feel free to email me through this site for other questions.


    take care,


    Dr. Kirk Laman
