Avatar n tn 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.

Avatar m tn The neurogenic variant of TOS is characterized by non specific symptoms like neck stiffness, pain on raising the arm above the head, neck pain, upper chest and back pain, headaches and a tired feeling in arm. Please consult the trauma specialist regarding this. Take care! The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you.
Avatar n tn 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?
Avatar n tn Pain under the left shoulder blade is usually a referred pain from abdomen like stomach ulcers, acidity, pancreatitis, or ectopic pregnancy or from the chest like in heart attack, pericarditis, pleuritis, pneumonia, pulmonary embolus, and aortic dissection. Since the pain is not much chances of chest related causes are less. It is in all probability acidity due to medications you took. Raise head end of bed. Take Omeprazole empty stomach in morning and an antacid gel at bedtime.
Avatar m tn now, I have back pain between the shoulder blades and just under them, and pain in the centre of my chest permiating primarily to the right side of my chest. the pain seems to be where my lung is and deep breaths occasionly hurt. the pain in my chest feels like its in my ribs but its hard to tell, but my back pain feels deep, in my chest. any idea what the cause is? I've had an EKG (not sure if thats right but its the heart test) and its perfect.

Avatar f tn When my back hurts I lay on the floor on my back with my knees to my chest and relax for a while. Just make sure someone is around to help you get back up just in case you get stuck like a turtle. And massages are always nice.

Avatar m tn hi, im 22 I have just got over a cold and now when ever i cough or sneeze my lower back hurts really bad. The pain is in the lower part of my spine and if im walking i have to stop and hold onto something to keep from falling due to how painful it is. I was wondering what could cause this and if i should go see a doctor about it. I also have a weird noise sometimes in my breathing.
Avatar n tn I am experiencing this intermittent pain that, the best way i can describe it, is that it is deep in my chest and I feel it in my back. but not on my surface back, like deep inside my chest towards the back. it is not heavy but light and it comes and goes and it is extremely annoying. I dont know what it is...the best way i can describe it is that it feels like that achy feeling you have in your back when you ate too much but feel something stuck in your upper back..
Avatar f tn I am 30 years old, was diagnosed with IDC grade 2 stage 1 a year ago. I have a spot in my back that hurts every time it is touched, not when I move. The pain isn't bad. This has been going for about 3 weeks. I was sent for a chest x-ray, which came out looking normal. My question is whether xray is sensitive enough, or if I should ask for some other test to be done in order to eliminate BC as the cause for this pain?

Avatar m tn I found that when I have the chest pains, if I put the pads of my tens on the area of back pain, the chest pains stop almost immediatly. I also have recently found an article which talks about the back pain(but not chest pain) and equates it to C spine nerve root damage, possiblly t spine degeneration and long thoracic muscle because of damage to the nerve roots in the C spine. . It is kind of arduos reading but is informative about a new theory.
Avatar n tn Hello, I was wondering if anyone here deals with lower back pain due to anxiety? Ive been feeling throbbing pains in the lower back on the right for a couple days on and off. Went to the hospital today, took a urine test and they said it looked fine, said it might have a bit of trace of blood in it so were gonna send it to the lab to check for any infections.
Avatar n tn I am 19 years old. I have a lot of crepitus at shoulder and cracking (also along right arms) continue to bother me now almost 6 months. The doctor said ' this is the chronic shoulder pain'. I'm confused. I don't feel such pain. Except if i carry heavy load, i felt pain at upper chest. But i do feel very tired, i mean a real tired, include back pain/tired most of the time. Numbness on-off. Is that considered pain? The doctor set me on MRI. still havent done yet.
