Welcome to Ask The Doctor.
I understand your concern.
Such chest pains seem to be because Muscular pain. However, Cardiac Chest pain and pain due to Acid reflux should be kept in consideration.
It is important to differentiate between the all as the treatment course is entirely different.
The Muscular chest pain aggravates with movement. It is dull, diffuse and continuous in nature.
However, the Cardiac chest pain is severe and crushing in nature. It increases with activity like walking, exercising. It also radiated to the left hand.
I feel your doctor must have found the ECG normal and would have given you treatment for muscular pain with painkillers that have caused the acid reflux.
For acid reflux, I would advise you to take a combination of Pantoprazole and Domperidone
Share my opinion with your doctor before acting upon it.
I hope it helps.
