Hi Cathie,
Can't tell you how many times I've been to dr in the last several years thinking I was having a heart attack or some kind of problem there. Last year I went thru the upper GI & endoscopy because of the continuous pain/pressure & feeling like I had indigestion all the time. They looked at my gallbladder, too. My upper back hurts also, and I have all of the arm/hand symptoms. Well, fast forward to now when I have found out I have herniation in the last two cervical discs ( 6 & 7) and spinal stenosis. I am having an MRI tonight & seeing a specialist tomorrow. I'll let you know what I find out. Beth
