I am having a problem with pulsating pain in various parts of my body (abdomen, testicles, right and left sides, collarbone, shin-calf, and right side of chest). It feels like my organs/flesh is pressing against my bones/sternum creating tightness in my chest, feels like I am going to explode. Also, just under my chest, the Xiphoid process feels very tender sometimes. The pain last for 5 -20 minutes then just stops.

I have had this problem starting in Jan but since mid-June it has really picked up and is happening daily. It happens at various times of day but less when I go for a walk. I have been to a cardiologist and gastroenterologist, I have had X-Rays and a Cat Scan taken and everything looks normal, including in my chest nothing is out of place.
