About a year and a half ago I woke up one morning in Greece on holiday and could not properly sit up. I had a stabbing pain on the left side of my chest, back and arm. I thought it was my heart but after many tests they could not find anything. I was flown back to A&E in the U.K. Where they could not find anything either. I could not lie down or sit up I was stuck half way in the middle it was agony like a crushing sharp pain.
2 weeks later the stabbing pain turned into a crushing aching pain. It radiated from a spot just under my left shoulder blade, right through into my chest wall and under both arms.
I have had so so so many blood tests, about 10 x-Rays, Bone Scans, 5 MRI scans and they can not find anything wrong with me!
I'm 21 and the last year and a half has been hell for me. The pain is worse when in bed or I have not moved e.g watching TV or driving.
It is a dull, crushing pain and never ever goes it's always there.
About a year ago I visited a chiropractor for months , I had 20 sessions but only 1 was beneficial. I woke up one morning pain free !!! Ben the over to put my socks on and BAM shooting pains all down my lower back and left leg, the pain then shot back up to my chest and back and under my arms and has remained there constantly.
The doctors have given up on me as they can't see anything on paper, I've lost my life basically and they can't even diagnose me
Anyone any ideas what the hell it is ?
The only thing that helps is a boiling hot shower, the second I ate out my chest wall tenses up and the pain returns instantly .
Please , please help I'm 21 and feel 90
