I am 51 and just shy of two years post menopausal
If it isn't one thing it is another or multiple things at once. So I have had chest and breast issues this entire year. I had right breast pain then left breast pain. Got a 3D mammogram and it is all ok, so they say. Started having fluttering heartbeats in the middle of the night that made it hard to for me to sleep because - I worry. Then I had severe upper right just above my breast pain in the beginning of July that sent me to the ER. After tests they determined it probably was Costochondritis. It went away about 2.5 weeks later. But in the I had an appt with my Dr. the next day after ER for left breast pain. She did a breast exam, hit that inflammation and I wanted to hit her. She said she felt a thickening on my upper right breast, and wanted me to see a breast surgeon. Ok I felt it was the costochondritis but I wanted to know about why my left breast keeps aching. Two nights ago my heart started what feels like skipping a beat. Was not that frequent but was like hiccups in my heartbeat. So today was my appt and my skipping got worse. (I figured stress from traffic and appt added to the skip). My appt went ok, Seems that I am fairly normal (ha, me normal?) though she didn't do an ultrasound. She did notice the skipping in the stethoscope but didnt' comment other than avoid caffeine.
I read that it might be or might not be serious. That it will usually go away on it's own.
Anyone else have this issue? I keep wavering on going to ER. I think I have a room there with my name on a plaque. lol.
