I had to go to the ER yesterday for severe chest pain (left side) that radiated into my arm. Pretty troubling symptoms.

The EKG was fine, the chest x-rays were clear, and the CBC was normal, leaving the ER doctor stumped. He still thinks it may be very, very early pneumonia, and to watch this weekend for a cough or fever (strangely, I've developed a cough since then).

I've had chest pain before due to Crohn's, but this pain was so different from anything I've ever felt before. Does anyone else get chest pain?
Diagnosed with Crohn's in 2008 at the age of 22.
Currently taking: Azathioprine, tramadol, welchol, promethazine
Surgeries: Cholecystectomy (2007)

Good evening Onedaymore i'm not a doctor but it does sound like on set pneumonia do you have any back pain as well i had pneumonia twice but i never had the chest pain that you are describing just bad back pain and a lot of coughing it hurt to breath and now that i think about it i did have some chest pain but i think it was from all the coughing it was pulling the muscles in my chest.
