A little over a month ago I re-pulled a muscle in my chest by incorectly liftng something heavy. I worked a general labour job and continued doing the job for another couple of weeks. Since the job involved constant lifting in pushing I assumed that I would be told to stop, DR insisted I kept working.The first couple of weeks the pain was unbarable but I found that workng out helped to one point when it didn't bother me anymore. 2 weeks ago the pain came back and they told me to not lift for 10 days and they gave me another set of pills to take. Overall the pills didn't help and me sitting at home made me think that I was having heart problems since the pain was on the left side. But Dr's kept assuring me that it was just muscle even when the left side of my head started to hurt right after the christmas holidays. I felt like I was developing anxiety in the process because I kept thinking somethig was gonna happen to me. I finally got ab x-ray on my chest last week and I'm still waiting for my results. But a few days ago my head starting hurting really bad. Mainly in the back and at times the top of my head. It hurts with movemement and it's scaring me and having me think that I'm gonna die because my uncle had his nefew die a few years back because his head was hurting and that's oveall freaking me out. I've noticed that when I'm completly focused on other things I feel almost normal again. But when I'm by myself and my mind can run free it freaks me out. Everyone thinks I'm stressing myself out but I can't help it even if I wanted to. Has anyone been in the same situation as me? I'm 24 btw and a girl if that helps.
