Hello I'm 27 yrs old. Last weekend I was with my two kids at the park and out of nowhere (had not been sick or hurting at all) it felt like someone was stabbing me in the left shoulder in a matter of just a few mins. it was unbareable pain the worst that i have ever felt! We left I went to the er by then i was screaming in pain it would not stop they gave me a shot of morphene and it did not seem to phase me at all I'm guessing cause I was hurting so bad.I'm not that big of a girl only 110 lbs so it should have helped but did not.Make a long story short I was in the er 3 times in two days I felt like I could not breath and the pain was so intense I would not wish on noone> All three time they gave me pain shots and nothing helped me they done a ct scan & said I had ripped all my chest muscles apart and had the start of phomina in my left lung. My question is if its my chest mucles ripped then why is my chest not really hurting its my shoulder It dont make any sense to me. How would I have ripped them apart and it did not hurt at the moment I was fine just walking and it started out of nowhere. I was in so much pain for five days if i had had a gun I really think I would have ended it I just wanted it to stop I did not sleep or anything but cry I was hurting so much & the pain meds they gave me to take at home did nothing for me.I have no insurance for the first time in my life so I think they really did not do much testing on me.I really dont think its just a ripped chest muscle if anyone has a clue what it might be please let me know!!! And if thats what it really is i can tell u that it hurts like ***l 100 times worse then childbirth!!!Please help
