Needing help or suggestions on what could be causing my chest pains

Hello everyone,

I need some help or some suggestions on what could be going on possibly with my heart. I'm currently 24 years old. I don't drink or smoke. I'm not overweight but I'm not extremely fit. But I am on anxiety medication. Since 2005 I've had these strange chest pains, mostly ranging in the center or left center area of my chest. Sometimes on occasion I'll feel them on the right side of my chest or near my left shoulder blade. The pains are dull and lasts between seven and ten seconds. The pains usually are not deep, they originate and stay between the skin and the bone of my center to left chest and I've never felt these pains yet per say in my back or any lower or deeper than between where my skin ends and bone begins, which may suggest it could be coming from my nerves. Also, they apparently go away for alittle while if I rub or massage my chest. Again, the pains feel dull but they are quite constant. During 2005, when I first had these pains, I got checked out at the hospital three different times because at the time, I felt like I was developing heart issues. The main why I thought that was because of the fact I was born pre mature with a under developed heart which was supposedly closed up when I was given medicine by the doctors who delivered me. But when I was getting checked out at the hospital I remember them doing EKG's, chest x-rays, and even checking my gall bladder with a ultrasound and all the results came up negative. They and my doctor were sold on the fact that it was anxiety. But on many occasions, even during rest, I'll have these annoying chest pains. They are not unbearable or at least not yet, but I need to find out if my doctor and the medical staff at the hospital didn't miss anything. Basically, I'm asking, if you were me, considering the nature of these chest pains, are they anxiety, or something else like pinched nerves or aching muscles, or could the be indications of the early stages of heart disease? I'm not extremely scared but I am quite concerned right now. My last blood test showed that my cholesterol level was back to normal it used to be high and my blood pressure stays right around average when I'm not anxious. But anyway, I'll welcome any kind of ideas or suggestions any of you may have. Thank you all for your time
