Hello all, i have been to the doctors twice with this, but even though they say my pain is unusual, they can't help me and I am hoping someone here can enlighten me. I am a 38 old female, with mild asthma but generally healthy. There is a history of heart disease in young men in my father's family.
So I woke one morning about a week ago with what felt like muscular pain on my back. I thought I must have slept wrong, but after a couple of hours the pain was felt on my chest too. It was exactly the same kind of pain in both places, deep and muscular and sometimes sharp. I called 111 for advice and they suggested I make an urgent appointment with my GP, which I did. She heard my heart, took blood pressure, heart rate and temperature, it was all fine and she suggested that it is muscle pain even though the fact that it radiates to both chest and back is unusual.
I did an xray and it showed that my heart and lungs are clear.
The whole week i continued to feel this pain. It gets better during the day but it wakes me up during the night. When I lower my chin i can feel it more intensely. It is as if something triggers it at night as in the morning it still feels painful. I tried changing bed and pillows but nothing helped.
I made another appointment with another GP who said that as the xray is clear it must be muscular strain or chostochindritis and to wait until it goes away on its own. Today it is worse than ever, i even struggled to shower as lifting my hand is painful. There is a dull pain in all my upper back and i get sharp pains in my left chest area.
Anyone has any ideas what this could be?
