Chest pains, nausea, dizziness, and weakness

Chest pains, nausea, dizziness, and weakness last week. ER gave me nitro spray to stop the pain.  Blood work was negative.  Still having some squeezing pain in chest.  Is it normal to have this pain only a few times a day?  Should I be worried? 

Hi Allison,

Negative tests in the ER (depending on what they are) usually don't exclude heart disease, only that there has been no damage due to a heart attack. My advice: check your risk factors for heart disease and get a stress test.
Hope this helps,
Dr T
