Back Problems Board Index

Hi! I also have that tight feeling in the chest area, along with pain/burning in my right side under my ribcage. Sometimes I also get the burning sensation on the left side. I do have a herniated disc in the lumbar region, along with bad disc's in the neck. My neck pops and cracks when I turn it different ways. My neurologist tells me I probably have nerve damage. Perhaps you are having the same problem, and hopefully with more research you will come up with an answer. I get that "can't breathe" feeling, also, and I think it is from the irritation and burning in my chest. It is scary when you feel like that. I take deep breaths and that helps some. Hope your GP will run some tests on you. Take care and good luck.

Have not been on back board alot lately so just seen your thread. I have alot of the same, it is not only scary but boy does it hurt. Mine has gotten progressinly worse. My chest feels so heavy at times & is tender to touch, shoulder, neck upper back, ribs & is now going into the left side of the head. I have had tests done which show minor problems but not the actual cause, going for another MRI this evening. I was told at first it was anxiety over & over until it started to interfer with my ability to use my arm, I regret not following my instints back then when I knew something was really wrong. I have also been for cardiac workup because it does give of symptoms of cardiac problems, mine is all left sided. I will tell you I have found there can be more then one cause for these symptoms. The thoracic spine, shoulder, muscles ect... do not let it go, I am in chronic pain every single day now, I would imagine you will end up with MRIs . Follow your instinct & insist on getting to the bottem of this. Keep in mind with these things going on it can & I am sure has caused you anxiety, that does not mean anxiety is the problem. I am hopefully closer to finding out what is going on. It took me several doctors but finally I am getting some where thank god. I don't want to see anyone end up like me, all because I let the doctors put off looking into this, you would not believe some of the diagnosises I had without any testing what so ever. Good luck , hang in there, & keep us informed. Sammy
