Chest pains driving me crazy, I’m in college please help, would love feedback


I am 20 (type 2 diabetic with it very controlled, also overweight but lost 80 pounds on a healthy vegetarian diet, still have more weight to lose ) and in urgent need of amswers. I’ve had chest pains for months now. The initial diagnoses was Gerd. I’ve had an echocardiogram and 3 ekg’s. I’ve also had blood test due to several emergency room visits. I’ve seen a cardiologist, neurologist, rheumatologist, and I’m seeing my primary soon. What makes me most nervous is that my chest pain can be accompanied by arm pain which never really goes away. I’m in college and this is taking such a toll.
Some things the dr found were (slightly high inflammation in the body and vitamin d deficiency)
Here are a list of symptoms:

Digestive issues
-Lower stomach pain
-loud lower stomach noises
Sore arms
-left forearm
Chest pain inner side and under left breast
Tension Headaches
Leg Muscle twitches
A lot of burping and gas
Armpit pain
Shoulder pain
Upper back and chest pain
Frequent bowel movement

There are a couple of rarely diagnosed Vascular Compression Syndromes that could be the cause of the problems you’re having. I have a friend that has many of the same symptoms and was recently diagnosed with SMA Syndrome, Nutcracker Syndrome(Left Renal Vein Compression), and May-Thurner Syndrome (Left Iliac Vein Compression). Nutcracker Syndrome can cause chest pain and the pain locations that you’re describing and can also affect the Left Arm. SMA Syndrome occurs at the same location and can cause all kinds of gastrointestinal problems. Just a couple of ideas as most doctors don’t know these conditions even exist!

Vascular Surgeons are the kind of doctors that deal with these conditions. Check out some of these groups on Facebook as well.
