Hi there,

About 4 weeks ago I developed pain on my left side that I thought was maybe shingles. I couldn't even touch it and it hurt when I showered. Well that intense pain went away but then I developed sort of muscular type pain that ended up coming and going throughout my shoulders, chest wall and back. Ibuprofin helped somewhat. this past Thursday I developed a new symptom - burning sensation in my left chest. I called the ER and was rushed to the hospital. They did an EKG, chest xray and other blood test to rule out blood clot.

Their Diagnoses was Pleurisy and Costocondritis. When I got home that night, the burning sensation spread to both of my breasts and throughout my chest. It did eventually go away then went to the back, it kept moving around. Coupled with that was some bit of numbness.

I had a u/s of the abdomen. My Dr. just called and said my spleen is slightly enlarged and I have to come in for blood tests tomorrow.

Also couples with these symptoms are somewhat difficulty breathing, weakness and tiredness.

Can anyone help me??

I am positive for ANA, ACA and MTHFR A1298C copy heterogenous pattern.

The Dr though some of it was acid reflux, but I am not buying it. If anyone has any suggestions, I would be most grateful.

Thank you kindly.
