I would like to know if anybody could possibly answer this question, starting in Jan of this year I have had a painful area just in the lower, left-hand side of my ribs, this started out to be a small area but now has spread along my whole left side, along with this a painful numbing feeling has been spreading down my left arm. I have had a CT scan, chest X-ray and bone scan done and nothing has turned up, and now I am scheduled for a Bone density scan on the 19th of May. Along with the tenderness to the touch comes the nausea and the painful breathing, also the heat that is radiating from this area is enough to cause both myself and my Wife to perspire. The Doctor says that it should not be still hurting and it may be caused by the compressed vertebrae, referred pain, but I have noticed myself that the area is painful at all times especially when seated or standing for long periods of time. I told a nurse friend about the arm pain and she informed me to see the Doctor as soon as possible, is the correct advise for the above symptoms and how can I have this stop? Thank you who ever has the answer, I am just getting tired of not feeling well and waiting so long to get the results.
