This is Dr. Davida small amount of air getting into the veins is not dangerous.the blood can absorb small amounts of air.if you had an air embolism, you would be deadyour chest pains are most likely due to anxiety and worry, or from acid reflux don't have to worry about air being in your veins.this sounds like your anxiety is getting out of control with worrylet me know if you have questions.
