| | help, is it heart?
I have been looking all around the web for help, so i'm hoping you guys can advise me.
I am a fortysomething male with a history of chest ache behind the sternum (8 years), no treatment apart from Ibroprofen, as Doctor thinks it's skeletal.
Two months ago I started having sharp pains same area, like someone sticking a pin inside my chest, my heart started pounding 24/7, which stopped my usual good nights sleep. Also, pins and needles in my left arm and aches and pains in neck and shoulders.
I have had an ecg and blood pressure and x-ray all normal. My doctor has given me steroid injection in the chest which seemed to ease the sharp pains, but the pounding is worse than ever.
I just don't know what to make of it all. It feels like heart to me but nobody else seems to think so as I look well. One night after feeling nausea and dhiarria with all the other things, I even took myself to a & e. Again, no real concern.
If anyone else has had same problems I would be thankful of some advice.
