I am 26 years old, female. A week ago I started having a pain on the left side of my chest under my breast area and in my back and shoulder. After a few hours I went to the ER. They did a CT Scan of my veins, an EKG, and blood work. They said they did not know what it was, that my tests came back ok. The pain lasted 5 hrs, after that i still have a pain in my chest its like a heavyness, dull ache. It is there almost 24 hrs a day and the sharper pains come and go during the day. A lot of people said it might be stress so I went ahead and continued my daily schedule. Two days later the pain is still there but tried to go running (Im in the military) I could not run far at all and I felt like my chest was going to crush in, I felt like I could not breath. I was running fine before this all started. So I went back to the doctor. I still have no idea what is wrong they siad to take a inflammitory (not sure spelling) which I have been taking and to come back in about 10 days !! Shouldnt they be running some test. Th pain is going to drive me crazy, Im scared to do anything that will raise my heart rate because the sharp pain and crushing feeling comes on really strong. I dont know what to do, and im so tired of hurting. I feel so tired and the pain wakes me up off anf on during the night some nights. Please if anyone has any ideas. Tests that i can ask for, Something. I feel like no on cares because im so young. Ive also been having headaches lately for a couple of months which I have never really had many headaches before. Thanks in Advance. TracyReply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
