redman and smb- hopefully it will turn out that both of you are healthy. but both of you know your bodies better than anyone so if something isn't right to you and your not satisfied with what they are telling you definitely get a second opinion. as for the pain i can tell youwhat i experience. my pain is never there all the time it comes and goes. alot of times it is a stabing pain either in my back(middle or shoulder blade area) or in my ribcage. sometimes i get a pain in my chest where it feels like it could my heart(but it is not) and i have this lump sensation in my throat all the time(they tell me from the bronchial openings being blocked). im sure there are lots of different pains others feel.
i hope you can find lots of good advice and support on here, there are lots of caring people here. so im hoping to hear from both of soon about dr.s appt.s
good luck and keep us posted. praying for you-melissa
