I am 16, female.

I have had chest pains on the left side of my chest for a long time now, (years). The start of my sophomore year I began to have eye twitching in my left eye, around this time I was getting all kinds of sickness, but only for the months of october/november. This included a 7 day high fever, two types of the flu, food posioning and a time of not wanting to eat anything at all for about two weeks, then finally throwing up nothing for an entire day. Since then my chest pain seems to have worsened, It's getting hard to breathe, I can't breathe without using my mouth anymore and now my spine has been hurting for almost anytime I try and straighten it out. I went to the E.R last spring for very bad rib pain which continues into my back, they did X-rays and nothing, so I won't be going back there because it was about 1000 dollars. Does anyone have anything similar?? I can't take this constant eye-twitching either..
Thanks
Taylor

You may also want to touch base with a physiotherapist as upper back injuries can often cause pain in the back that radiates around to the chest and may cause problems with breathing. Check out the following links for two common upper back injuries that can cause some of the symptoms you describe: Costovertebral Joint SprainThoracic Disc Bulge Hope that helps, PhysioAdvisorwww.PhysioAdvisor.com
