Avatar m tn For 5 years I have suffered with Chest pain that radiates into my back and down both arms during excertion. I have had stress test, heart cathorization, throat and stomach scoped. I've been tested to see if I am having spasms in my esophagus. I went to an orthopedic doctor who performed an mri of my neck and upper back. I did have two disc buldges in my neck but he said that would not cause the pain. The pain stops when I stop the excertion.

Avatar f tn I am a 49 year old female with aching left sided chest pain. The doctors did an ekg which showed i have sinus bradycardia but I have always had a slow heart rate. They did a cat scan that showed cloudy lungs with the looks of a snow storm in them. They put me on an anti imflamitory and have scheduled a cat scan in 3 weeks to see if the symtoms disappear. The pain is still present all the time and I feel short of breath when I do anything. What could it be?
Avatar f tn Did they give you any medicine, such as nitroglycerine for the chest pain? What testing did they do? Did they tell you what sort of irregular heart beat you had? For instance, skipped beats, ectopic beats, bradycardia (slow heart rate), supraventricular or sinus tachycardia, etc.?

Avatar f tn My son is 10 years old and he recently received a trampoline for a late birthday gift. Recently he started complaining of chest pain. We figured he was not used to jumping and that maybe he was messing with something inside like a muscle or something. He has been complaining for a about a week now and tried to jump again and it is still hurting him something awful. Could this be a pulled muscle?

Avatar f tn I recently had very bad chest pains and consulted a doctor who wanted to give me an injection on the chest,which I refused.the pain felt like something was choking and at the same time I had tterrible backpain and headache.I went to a 2nd doctor who gave me painkillers but couldn't diagnose me.could it be a heart condition?
Avatar m tn Hi, Thank you for your comments. My husband told me that he had written in and he asked me to read what he had written and your reply to it. First, I have more symptoms than what he has listed but he thinks that giving them all is part of the reason that I cannot get a Doctor to give me a diagnosis. Myself, I don't see how I can get a correct diagnosis without listing all my symptoms, but I digress.
Avatar n tn I am a 23 year old female-nonsmoker/nondrinker/normal BMI who began having chest pain 4 months ago. I believe the pain was initially onset due to stress (I was switching jobs at the time). Stress is gone (went back to old job) but pain remains: blood test (hepatitis, h pylori), EKG, gall bladder/liver function, echo cardio/stress are all normal. I have been treated with arthritis medication for costocondritis and been perscribed both prilocec and nexium with no help.
Avatar f tn I think you should schedule an appointment with a cardiologist for a general appraisal of your heart. Many times chest pain is not the heart, it is the muscles in the chest. But, still it should be checked out by a doctor that will give you specific diagnosis results and recommendations. You age suggests you don't have any heart problems, but if you continue to have high BP without treatment I think you will have heart problems someday in the future.
Avatar f tn They have progressively gotten worse over the past 5 years. I tried working in a nursing home for a couple of months and I ended up having to quit because I would come home in tears every night because of the pain. There is certain things I loved to do, like fishing, that has become a challenge for me because I cannot bend over a lot or it aggravates the pain. I I have been to all kinds of drs the past 5 years to try and get this resolved.

Avatar m tn When ever I hold my breath and let all the wind out of my lungs and squeeze my chest it will give me pain on and around my sternum. If I turn my head sharply I will feel pain on the right side. But what hurts me the most is when I push down on my sternum or pull an object into my sternum. Nothing shows up in xrays and the doctors just keep sending me away without telling me anything. Does anyone know what this could be? It also does hurt in my back on the right side when everything hurts.
