21, female. Went to ER recently and have been diagnosed with Costochondritis, but I'm really not all that convinced...
My symptoms include:
-Mainly shoulder blade pain (pain in both or at one side) Also pain between the shoulder blades
-Chest pain/tightness/heaviness (not right in the middle but around)
- Left arm pain/tightness/numbness (mostly in arm pit, but the whole arm as well). This arm would get really weak also
-Nausea (no vomiting)
-Neck and jaw pain (mostly left side)
-Tooth ache/pain (only for a little while)
I would say the pain is mostly constant, but every now and then, it'll simmer down for a moment. It doesn't really worsen when my chest is being pressed on. But I just get this constant tightness/heaviness feeling. And right now, my right shoulder blade is in so much pain.
Pain killers don't seem to be working.
I've had EKG, Chest Xray, blood tests, and echo. All normal. And I've been to the ER multiple times for this already. I went to different ERs as well. I would go back to the ER now but I'm afraid to getting the same answers...
There's just no way this isn't a heart problem. It's goo similar to a heart attack. I fear this is a warning for what's yet to come.
Has anybody gone through this before?
