About 4 months ago I started having chest pain on the left side of my chest. The pain was mainly an aching/squeezing and not really a burning. I went to the ER and did bloodwork, a chest x-ray, and EKG that all came back normal. I then went to a cardiologist and did cholesterol bloodwork, EKG stress test, and echocardiogram. Everything came back normal with some slight mitral valve prolapse noticed on the echo.
Since the pain first started, the pain has spread to not only the left chest but also sometimes the central chest and right chest. In addition, I’ve had some abdominal tenderness at times on both sides of my belly button/rib area and sometimes have an aching in my mid back near my lats - almost like a contraction feeling. I did an abdomen CT but everything came back normal.
The last 3 weeks I’ve also started to have a headache almost every day. Lately it feels like a pressure towards the back of my head and neck pressure/tightness. I had a couple of instances where I felt light headed and once felt light headed with chest squeezing. I went to the ER for more bloodwork and came back with elevated bilirubin. My GI doctor wants to do a scan to check my gallbladder to see if that could be causing the problems. Has anyone had any similar symptoms or any suggestions? This has been every day for 4 months which is becoming tiresome. I am currently just seeing a cardiologist and GI doctor.
