Ok all I'm a massive sufferer of health anxiety and recently diagnosed with costochondritis I guess reason I'm asking this question is for a little reassurance, comparison of symptoms and to ultimately help others.
So I've sadly been a frequent visitor of A&E with pains / aches in my chest and although the automatic diagnosis of the ECG machine says I've had a prior inferior infarction doctors and cardiologists disagree and report my ECGS as normal only recently have I had my confirmation of costochondritis due to active chest pains whilst waiting to see my own GP for a unrelated matter.
Pains I get can range from pain down side of my rib cage (under my armpit and downwards) tightness at the top of my chest like just below my collarbone area and along the edges of my ribs and my sternum these pains range from a mild ache to a sharp pain or an electrical type shooting pain all of which last no more than a minute at most and are never more painful than a 3/4 out of 10
I also quiet often burp up stomach acid which doesn't help
So how do I differentiate these Too cardiac pains? Is there a massive difference and do others out there have same type feelings as I?
