No one can figure this one out and I am wondering where to go from here. I experince left side burning pain on the entire left side. Sometimes it feels like my eye will explode. Rubbing the area makes it feel temporarily better. It helps the most if I rub under my armpit or behind my knee. At times, I have had chest pain. I even went to the ER one time with it, but they found nothing. EKG was fine. Some test with contrast dye of my heart was fine. They found nothing.
I am a 27 y/o female. Ive seen 2 neurologists who ruled out neuropathy, lupus, Multiple Sclerosis. Once they were exausted (MRI's, nerve condustion tests ect) they sent me to a cardiologist who found nothing as well. No blockages, stress test was fine, but the only thing I did not have was a 24 hr EKG, which he felt was not that nessesary. I am ready to give up.
I've had this pain on and off every month (a few times a month) for the last 6 years. Caffine and my period makes it more intense. I am guessing its vascular, but what could it be? Why just on the left side? It's driving me crazy. Any ideas/help will do. ANy one know of a great dr. in upstate NY?
