anxiety? or heart problems

I have recently been having burning pains in my upper back on the right side. I also have a tight feeling in my neck and visible pulsations in both my neck and stomach. I have a shortness of breath when I stand up or even when I sing. Could this be anxiety?

Re: anxiety? or heart problems


well I had the pulsing in my gut have a few sx going on so it's hard to say if it's just anxiety.usually there is a physical problem behind the anxiety.

the burning pain could be neuropathy,but the neck pain can point to a problem with the disks in your c-spine.I heard that neck problems can cause the pulsing sensation in the abdomen.I have two bulging disks in my c-spine(C5 & C6)so maybe that is the cause of your pain too.Medical texts only refer to the pulsating as being an aortic aneurism,but I had an abdominal ultrasound and it ruled that out for me.Are you a thin person?I am and my dr. said sometimes thin people can have that pulsing there.

It's not unusual for physical health problems to cause us stress.Have you seen a dr. yet?

Hope you get a diagnosis so you can know what's going on.Shortness of breath can mean so many different things,but maybe your neck/back muscles are tensed up which affects your breathing.

Please post back and let us know how you're doing.
