I have been experiencing some very weird symtoms since March 2010. I have upper body pressure in the following places. I can feel it in my stomach, middle back between shoulder blades, shoulders, neck, and even in my head and face. I get a burning sensation with it I also feel it in my arms. I have been working with my PCP to found out what is causing this and to this day he has not been able to diagnose what is going on with me. I'm getting to a point where I don't want to live anymore because I am so miserable every medication I have been put on gives me no relief. I go to work with this pressure and sit at my desk crying because I cannot get an answer. This has turned my life upside down. This pressure takes away my energy so I can't even do simple things anymore like clean my house. I hope someone on here has been through what I am going through and can give me some help......

  • I know this is going to sound strange but my mom had some similar problems even in her ears. It ended up being acid reflux even though she didn't have heartburn. We had never heard of such a thing.As for feeling like you don't want to live, I understand that because I have lived in constant pain and exhaustion for 25 years. Sadly it's just the way it is for millions of people but you don't realize it personally until it happens to you. I have been experiencing some very weird symtoms since March 2010.
