So, um, those chest pains?

As I was sitting in the Urgent Care, I noticed that they were position-dependent -- if I leaned back, they settled down and went away. Over the last couple of days (now that the hypochondria/anxiety has gone away) the pains have gone away completely -- so long as I sit up straight, or lean back slightly.

...did I just get an EKG and an expensive blood test for poor posture??

I don't think so, honestly. There must have been some trigger; there's nothing about "bruised esophagus" hypothesis that's incompatible with position-dependence. But, jeez.
