I get sharp pains in my upper back that need to be rubbed out and it seems like I have constant chest tightness. I have been to the er for the chest tightness when it started and I did not have a heart attack. I followed up with internest and cardiologist who said real heart problems don't present with chest tightness for weeks on end and had stress test, ekg, blood work, chest x-ray. I used to get really bad headaches that caused wierd sensations in my teeth. An ache if you will. Can being under great anxiety and tension cause your teeth to ache. I have woken up with a swollen jaw from clenching my teeth. I keep obsessing over these symptoms.
Yes, I have had all of these symptoms.
First, for the chest tightness-try taking 400-500mg of Magnesium everyday. It might take a week or two before you notice a difference, but I reallly think it will help you. This has helped my chest pressure immensely. I let up on taking it for awhile and my chest pressure came back. So, now I'm taking it again and it's getting better.
Your teeth aching could be caused by your grinding. I also grind my teeth at night(I didn't know I did this until my husband told me
). I took the advice of someone on here and bought a mouth guard at walmart(the ones in the toothpaste section, approx. $18). I just started using it a couple days ago, so I'm hoping it will help my headaches, toothaches, etc.
Another thing that can cause your teeth to ache(and headaches) are sinus infections. I ended up having a sinus infection(had a sinus CT) and the only sinus related symptoms I had were headaches(top of head and forehead), dizziness, and my upper teeth ached.
Hope this helps.
