Unfortunately my insurance is medicaid and it's only for pregnancy so it doesn't cover any sort of mental health. My heart was tested over 2 years ago with an echocardiogram, and in this past October I had a stress test. Neither of these made me feel any better because they can both miss things, and a clear test in the past doesn't mean I'm not having a problem now. There is definite heart disease in my family on both sides.
I think it's my heart because I have many heart related symptoms, including chest pain, shortness of breath, arm pain, elbow pain, back pain, jaw pain, sweating, dizziness....and none of the spots that ever hurt are sore or tender, and one doctor even told me it sounded like referred pain. I can't find anything else that would refer pain to all of these areas, especially simultaneously. The jaw and elbow pain ALWAYS comes together. None of my teeth are sore. There's no trouble chewing, no pain from eating cold or hot things, no sign of a tooth problem. None of the muscles around my jaw or neck are sore and there's no tender spots. Same thing with my elbows. I have full range of motion, no trouble lifting anything, and nothing that I can do to make the pain better or worse. There are also no sore or tender spots anywhere on my back.
Also, my jaw feels tight and tingly when I exert myself, especially when I lift my 1yr old in his carseat. I've done a lot of research on TMJ to see if it could explain my symptoms but nothing matches anything close to my symptoms. Everything talks about trouble chewing and moving the jaw and tender spots. None of which I have. And nothing talks about elbows that ache every time the teeth/jaw does.
I'd love an alternate explanation but even doctors shrug their shoulders and say "I don't know" when I ask about my symptoms. Its really frustrating and I feel like my doctor keeps blowing me off and ignoring my desperation when I BEG for help.
