Started about 2 months ago mainly in left arm/upper chest area, now going into the entire upper body (right side included), progressively getting worse; 2 weeks ago, was checked to see if having a heart attack, wasn't. However, I was given nitroglycerin in the hospital, which seemed to relieve it for a week. Over-the-counter meds don't work on it. I have an aortic aneurysm and aortic regurgitation. I'm in tears by the early afternoon, it hurts so bad. My doc is checking me for nerve damage, and then possible muscular/skeletal. In the meantime, I have to suffer with the pain. Any thoughts on what this might be? Thanks!
