I am assuming you were diagnosed with skeletal chest pain.

What is your question about this?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Iwas diagnosed with skeletal chest pain 2months ago,i still have discomfort, more of a tight feeling most of the time, I have had my heart checked and that is ok,so my question is how long can this last,as it is now getting me down.

That is good your heart was checked.

Make sure your stomach and esophagus are checked too.

These can commonly cause chest pain

The skeletal chest pain can last for months at times. I would ask your doctor about a short course of gabapentin.

It may help
