Last week, I began experiencing symptoms again of the rib pain, sternum/chest pain, and middle-upper back
pain, as well as an achey sensation in my shoulders. The doctor ran a bunch of tests, including a 3 day holter to monitor my heart which was fine. My blood work was pristine (his words not mine), with exception to urate levels which were, quite frankly, through the roof. I don't eat much red meat and I don't drink alcohol, but I do take a diuretic for blood pressure.
