After working for 20 years without a sick note - my health has been poor for the last 3 years. Presently I have chest pain behind the right breast / ribs. Sternum sometimes aches also. Doctor suggested that it was muscular, but I have my doubts. I often feel that when I get flare ups of this type of pain - it is accompanied by other digestive problems such as reflux / globus, some heartburn and lower abdominal pain. sometimes mild nausea also. The pain is worse at night - particularly at around 4am when it often wakes me up and I can't get comfortable enough to get back to sleep.
Yesterday at the advice of my doctor I decided to try osteopathy to see if it would help. However it seems to have aggravated the situation. Last night the pain was even worse. Today I feel totally wiped out - nausea, headache and the chest pain is constantly gnawing away. I am at work, but cannot continue like this. I had an ultra sound 3 years ago - when these flare ups started and it was clear. I have requested another ultrasound, but the waiting list is 3 months. I would appreciate your thoughts and ideas on this as I am getting desperate.
