I'd love to hear from anyone with my weird symptoms. For about 18 mos. I've had episodes of chest/sternum pain that are horrific. They come unexpectedly,and are totally unrelated to eating. In fact, I have no stomach/gastric symptoms. I may go 8 weeks without it happening and then may have 2 episodes in 2 weeks. Random. The pain lasts about 30 minutes every time. Always radiates to jaw and is so bad it's almost paralyzing. My heart has been checked out - it's perfectly healthy. Having a HIDA scan next week.
