i posted this in the anxiety forum as i suffer from that to. i wanted to post here to hear from the people that dont frequent the other forum.
im worried,again... :( i have this tight odd feeling over the left side of my upper chest.it also seems like i cant get a good breath in.
let me give you a little background. ive gone to the er (about 4 months ago for this feeling) ,my general doc (over a year ago for palpitations) and got referred to a heart specialist for the palpitations. the heart specialist ran a bunch of test.some where blood, another he did an ekg ?? and also did a sonogram (forgot the real name) of my heart. everything came back normal except i had a low b12 but that has since gone back up.
the er visit i had awhile back i went in for the same feeling plus i was getting dizzy and my left arm hurt.(i still get dizzy). they did an ekg (all the electrodes on my chest) and did some blood work and took a chest x ray. all the test came back with no signs of problems. my chest xray showed what the doc think is causing the pain. back in 2001 i broke my 5th thoracic vertebrae, i also broke one of my ribs on my left side. he thinks i damaged some nerves in that area and thats whats causing the pain. my left shoulder also cracks alot and thinks that is damaged in some way. all this coming together for the pain i have.
im still getting it and i freaked out its my heart. any tips ?
i have panic disorder ,ocd and anxiety. and iam on meds for all of that.
