Chest pain with cough

Hi, I'm 25 years old, female... I've been having chest tightness/ pain all over chest for past week. I went to the er on Sunday. They did an ekg, X-ray, and blood work and couldn't find anything wrong. Went to my regular doctor who thought it was anxiety. She put me on short term anxiety meds.
