I've had 5 EKGs, a nuclear stress test, an echocardiogram, and have worn a 24 hour holter monitor within the last year which has all come back normal (thankfully). Plus blood work.
But I am STILL having chest pain! This time it's been for 2 weeks!
When they first started, it would last a day then it progressed to a few days then a week and now I'm up to 2 weeks.
Sometimes they're very sharp and hurt like heck right next to my sternum on the left side. Those ones feel deep and I usually get a hot flash after. Then sometimes it's a muscle/ache feeling up near my armpit/shoulder area. And if I press on the one spot on my chest, I can feel the tenderness in my back but I cannot recreate the sharp pains. Now Im starting to feel some down by the left ribs, at the bottom. All of these pains (especially the sharp ones) come when they want, out of nowhere.
These only started this past year as I've been having other symptoms (mainly autoimmune) where I experience lots of muscle aches and muscle fatigue. Im currently in the process of figuring out why.
So my question is, I guess, do you all think this is heart related or more muscle? And can muscle cause the deep sharp pain? And has anyone else out there experienced this?
It's driving me crazy! Lol thanks in advance!
