I'm getting a bit concerned about a chest pain I get that started at some point yesterday, that I was hoping someone might be able to help me out with.
The pain is a sharp, electric shock, needle prick type pain that occurs right in the centre of my chest level with my nipples. The pain is extremely brief, lasting only a second or even less, and seems to be happening anywhere between every 30 minutes to an hour. It's not excruciating pain, just enough to make me start to worry a bit about it. There are no other symptoms I'm experiencing, only the one's associated with the conditions I been diagnosed with below, which can easily be confused with other reasons for various symptoms.
I've been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, CFS/ME, Gastritis and Anxiety. On top of that I was diagnosed with IBS due to bouts of inconsistent bowel movements, nausea, burping, bloating and associated pains, however this is now under investigation again as 2 faecal calprotectin results from stool samples have revealed results >300 each time, with the first test being >1400, indicating signs of inflammation. I've had a colonoscopy with biopsies taken and all of that came back normal which rules out Ulcerative Colitis, I'm now waiting for my small bowel MRI on the 16th January to look for signs of Crohn's Disease.
Any thoughts, views and/or advice on this would be greatly appreciated.
Many thanks in advance.
