Hi. This is the first time I'm posting in you support group i went too many doctors because of my condition, i have been experiencing chest pain, arm, back, shouder and sometimes jaw pain but all of them says its muscles, and had found out I have myofascial pain syndrome. I have been to my cardiologist latelyand conducted ecg, echo and blood works and the result was thickened anterior mitral valve leaflets with good closing and opening motion and my cholesterol was high but she told me that I dont have any heart disease. But im still worried especially now that I am experiencing such symptoms of having or before having a heart attack. Im very confused because of the similarities of the symptoms of my myofascial pain syndrome. I dont know what to. I need your advice. Thank you.

Welcome to the support network. You could be experiencing anxiety that is making it seem worse. It's always hard to pinpoint these things on your own and if your doctors are telling you that you don't have heart disease, you have limited options other than getting another opinion. You could also go back to your cardiologist and ask that you be given a stress test. This is what was used to determine I had a problem. I went complaining of chest pains and my cardiologist didn't think my EKG was abnormal enough to think I had a problem. She decided to order a stress test just in case and the test showed I had a blockage which required surgery. I have since had pains from time to time and have had follow up tests that show everything is fine so you can have pains without having heart disease. See if they'll give you the test.
Good luck to you!
