Common Questions and Answers about Pain chest to back

pain

Hello! I have been having a dull aching pain in my chest mainly left side, back pain and some occasional arm pain. I do have GERD and had my gallbladder out in 2003. I saw my doc and she thinks its just a flare up of GERDs but has set me up to have a stress echo. I am driving myself nuts wondering is the heart related, am i ignoring signs of a heart condition. My doc doesnt seem so worried but i have small children and cant help but wonder am i taking the right measures promptly.
If I move a certain way it triggers the pain and it feels like someone is stabbing my in my chest. When I am not in pain, then it starts to burn in the same place. If I put something cold on it then the burning sensations stop but as soon as I take it off it starts to burn again. I have been having a little flutering of my heart but not a lot maybe twice in one day but not everyday. I have some pain in my left shoulder as well and in my neck on the left side.
I have had these symptoms for 6 to 8 months: * Pain in the lower Trapezius/Rhomboid. * Vibrating like spasms that seem to originate in the rhomboid, but are noticeable throughout the body. * Frequent burning sensation & Spasms in the middle, but mostly the upper trapezuis. * Left arm & shoulder paresthesia.(its in different places at different times) * Chest pain that feels tender when pressed, and when arms are moved into different positions.

On Tuesday I woke up with pain in my chest/back under the shoulder blade. This pain seems to worsen when I move or breathe in. It is also hard for me to move around in bed or get out of bed. I thought maybe it was due to the position I slept in but it has been two days and the pain has not gotten any better. I haven't had any congestion or a cold lately and I haven't lifted or moved anything that would have affected my muscles.

What you describe, suggests that your pain is of musculoskeletal origin but it could also be due to disease or compression of nerves, as they emerge from the spinal cord or as they course, from back to front, between your ribs. You may have to be evaluated by a rheumatologist to get to the bottom of this. Carefully consider your physical activity and whether any of it could have led to back or spine injury that continues to be aggravated on a regular basis, without enough time to heal.
for the last 2 weeks I have had a bad cough and chest and back pain, it is not getting better and there seems to be no cough syrop or medicationt that will work. I keep getting dizzy as well not just while coughing. I really don't want to sit at a clinic to find out I have a bad cold, but I am getting concerned that it may be more then a cold. I have also been getting a fever off and on.
I've had pain in my chest and back (thorasic spine area) that feels like a band of pain that is constant. Been diagnosed for lack of anything specifici - Chronic Pain. I'm on heavy doses of narcotics to control the pain just to get through the days and nights. My mother and daughter have both heard of some heart related issues specific to women that they feel this could be. Nothing has shown up on any tests - heart, gastro, etc.
Please talk to your parent and tell them about your pain. I think they may want to take you back to a different ER or have you seen first thing tomorrow by your primary care physician. In my opinion you should never let this type of pain be dismissed, especially with a 13 year old. Good luck to you. Please let us know how you are feeling.
This pain goes to my left underarm,to the left arm at times and to the left upper back of the body.it becomes unbearable when I feel the pains on the ribs underneath the left breast and also at the left upper back.At times I will have to be hitting my left chest to get relief and at times hit those ribs.I have seen my doctor and he had done ECG for me bt I was told my heart is OK.I have seen physioteraphist also but this pain is still there.I have been feeling this pain since may,2011.
It also hurts in my throat when I take a deep breath or swallow. It is very uncomfortable to lay on my stomach because of this chest pain. It has lasted for almost a week now. What is this?
Your back injury occurred 5 months ago and you are continuing to experience back pain and now chest pain. Have you had a medical evaluation done since your injury? It is difficult to assess the underlying causes of your current symptoms as there is no objective diagnostic testing results documented. Baseline x-rays to determine the status of your lumbar spine would be an initial starting point. The chest pain could be a referred pain from your low back or a completely different problem.
Sometimes the pain starts in my chest and seems to go to my back and at other times it starts in the back and goes to the front. Working makes the pain worse and lasts longer. I take 2 Aleve an it helps a lot. Any suggestions?
When I was diagnosed with GERD and my esophagus was inflamed, this was the kind of pain that I felt. Most everyone I talked to said that you'd feel it in your chest, but I tend to feel most it in my back. Also, have you tried something like Prilosec OTC to see whether it helps? I still highly recommend seeing a Gastro about this, perhaps even getting an upper-Endoscopy.
Hi, Has a chest xray been done to rule out any rib fracture, chest infection, or air in the pleural space? There could be several causes of the symptoms he is having including a muscle pull, injury or trauma at the site, chest infection, etc. Does he have any associated symptoms? He should apply some local pain relief medications, take some oral pain relief medications, maintain a proper posture throughout the day, try some warm compresses.

When women were added to the cardiac research it was discovered that they do usually present with the same symptoms that men do when experiencing heart pain. Some never have chest pain, or only have right sided pain, or back pain or a bit of chest pressure but great fatigue. All sudden onset chest pain (either side) should be treated as serious until it is proven otherwise. How is your Mom doing?
I have been experiencing chest pain in my left breast along with back and shoulder pain. It can sometimes last for days on end and is very painful and scary. I have gone to the emergency room twice, the first time I was having a full blown anxiety attack. I was kept there overnight on a heart monitor after having an ekg done. When i saw the cardiologist in the am, he informed me that I have an irregular heartbeat but it was nothing to be alarmed about.
I finally got my EP to agree to do a test regarding the pain...he is having me do a stress test in a few weeks. In the meantime I am wondering if this is a waste of time if the test isn't even 100% for determining CAD. I'd like to either have them give me a CT Scan or 64 slice scan... What is the best test to get done without having to go through a cath? I really want to avoid that, especially since they don't think this is heart related but I want to make sure.
Hi Welcome to the MedHelp forum! A chest pain of this type and intensity should be investigated immediately either at an ER or in a cardiologist's care. You need urgent 12 lead EKG. Depending on its results, you may need ECHO, stress test, and angiogram. Also heart enzymes will be done. Other than this it can be a pulmonary embolism, if you have breathlessness as well. At times structures in the abdomen can also cause pain in the chest.
No not at all I have IBS with diarrhea so I don't have any issues with that although its much more painful and dibiltating it's similar to indigestion when I was pregnant but I feel the need to have my back cracked this way to heaven but nothing helps.
I am having the back and chest pain symptoms that I have found here in the anxiety community. I know I am stressed. I take bupropian, sertraline and trazadone. Is it something I should see the doctor about or is it something that my therapist should be aware of for medicinal purposes? I guess it has been going on so long that I am not sure if I ever talked to her about it. It is very uncomfortable most of the time and I don't seem to have it so bad if I am pretty busy and forget about it.
The pain feels mostly like it is where the rib cage attches to the spine in the back right behind my heart but it causes pain all through my left chest rib area. Nothing I can do seems to make it feel better. I stretch around and move my left arm about trying to relieve it but it feels internal. Along with that I have been getting heart palputations and shortness of breath. Maybe this is due to anxiety and worrying or is all of this related in some way.
