I have had constant chest pain for about three weeks. My doc did ang EKG and since I had a nucclear stress test last August aand both were normal he said it was nothing to worry about probably just a pulled muscle. But I do worry. Any one else had this issue or can offer any advice.
I have had the same problems and after numerous tests (ekgs, chest x-ray, stress echo, etc.) I was told I have costochondritis. It is a very severe case and scares me to death. My chest constantly aches and every once in a while I get sharp pains when I move a certain way. I have tried taking anti-inflammatorys and muscle relaxers and neither have helped much. This condition can last 3 months to a year from what I have been told or even become chronic. If your chest hurts when you press on it (especially between the ribs) then this is a pretty sure sign that you have this condition. You may want to have a Dr. confirm but I would look into this being a cause.
I had the same problems (and still am infact) about 2 months ago. Doctor did 2 chest x-rays and found nothing - Normal heartbeat and all. He gave me some medicine and it went away for about 2 or 3 weeks. Now its back again - I have this along with anxiety problems so together they are not a great combonation. Sometimes i feel like im going to have a heart attack, but all i have to do to feel better is take my mind off of it. I wish i had a good releif tactic for Costo~ but I have yet to find one myself....Anyone have any Suggestions?
