I have chest pain daily. Sometimes the pain wakes me from sleep. I went to the doctor in August 08 and was told I had pneumonia. The pain never really went away although at times it was not quite as bad. Let me add that I have suffered from moderately high blood pressure for years as well as asthma.
Then in December, I was hurting pretty bad in my chest and it had moved into my shoulder blade, my neck and jaw, and in my arms. I drove myself to the ER (although I cannot tell you to this day what route I took). I was admitted to the hospital and tests began. My EKG was normal. Stress test was normal. While in the hospital, I was given blood thinner shots in my stomach, nitro glycerin and antibiotics. Again they told me I have peumonia and anxiety. I was sent home with xanax, more antibiotics, cymbalta, blood pressure meds and asthma meds.
Day before yesterday (May 31, 2009) i felt 2 separate tearing sensations in my chest about 5 hours apart. Since then, I am having extreme fatigue, continuous chest pain, and at times I find it difficult to breath and I have started having diahrrea. I just can't believe this is just anxiety. Something is seriously wrong with me and I can't get anyone to listen to me.
I am afraid if I go back to the doctor, they will tell me I am just suffering from stress and I will have to live with this pain. Any ideas?
