I posted before with no response. I will try to explain more. I have a squeezing dull ache chest pain in the upper center of my chest {between my breasts} The squeezing I am aving feels like pain from my heart. I went to the ER 3 nights ago. They did an EKG and blood work and an xray of my heart and said they all came back good. I am still having this pain squeezing/ dull ache feeling and it is scaring me because it feels like my heart. This has been going on for over a week now. It does not go away at all. Could this be a heart attack working up? Or what could be causing it.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
Squeezing chest pain is typical characteristic of angina. I would suggest you stress radionuclide scan followed by CT angiography.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
