Hi everyone. I am a 23 year old with a history of high blood pressure that I take losartan 25 mg for. I posted on here before, but I just wanted to post an update. The pain has gotten worse. I constantly have pain and a pressure feeling in my left upper back that sometimes radiates to my chest. It also radiates to my shoulder and arm. The pain does not go away ever. It is pretty much always there but gets worse if I tense my back or move a certain way. My heartbeat has been recently going through periods where it feels like it beats really hard. This has been going on more and more often. Now multiple times throughout each day. It seems to get worse with meals or when I lie down. I am terrified that I have a thoracic aortic aneurysm. I have no family history or connective tissue disorder that I know about. I had gone to an urgent care back in May about this and they ran blood work which was normal and did chest x-rays which were also normal. I went to the doctor yesterday (August 1st) and she seems to think that is is not cardiac related. She thinks it is nerve pain and wants me to see a neurologist about it. I still just feel like something more is going on. I think I am going to request some kind of imaging of my chest. I know no one on here can definitively say anything, but I'm just really worried. Did anyone else that had a thoracic aortic aneurysm have these kind of symptoms?
