Anyone have severe pain that moves around?
Hi, I have the usual achy feeling and my knees always hurt and low back. However, I seem to get a very sharp, severe pain in one area, such as shoulder, for about 3-4 days, then it goes somewhere else, like the buttocks, or my neck.
I always think, well, maybe I have something REALLY wrong with that one area, then just when I'm about to go complain to the doctor and ask for an x-ray, the severe pain moves to another spot.
The worst pain is the chest-shoulder area. I think I am having a heart attack because I have a lot of risk factors for that--HBP, high cholesterol, overweight, family history. One time I went to the ER and they kept me overnight and ended up sending me home after a lot of tests. They did find that my heart was *enlarged* from years of High blood pressure, so I went to a cardiologist and he changed my medicines. He told me to always go the
ER with chest pain, but I would be there a lot if I did that.
