Chest-Rib pain...Dont want to go to doctors AGAIN
« on: August 28, 2014, 05:35:13 PM »
Okay so when I went to take my muscle relaxer I got scared..becauae this was the night I had to start back up in a combine bc...I didnt want to....they make me sooo sick...but when I took the baclofen if notice I get this weird chest dropping feeling...and I jerk myself awake...I assumed it was my poor anxiety riddled body finally relaxing but it scares me!! So this night I was even more scares..I had to take the bc...oh yeah got that head, chest dropping feeling and freaked...Of course it folllows me the next day...mid chest strange feeling...needless to say within two weeks I was off bc becauae of the horrific stomach pain, pain in my diaphragm and irrational anxiety.  The doctor said no more....but I've NOW gotten this chest anxiety...ive had my heart checked soooo many times I dont want to go back including a mnth ago before the bc in the e.r.

but I keep thinkin. ..two weeks on bc..I could have damaged my heart right? Some girls have strokes and heart attacks within a week or so ive googled. But from crying over how ive felt I now have this pain under mt left rib...so weird pressure odd sensations in chest along with this pain under my left rib....

Im trying to figure out if the chest crap is anxiety and ive brought that from the baclofen....and thi isnt the first time ive had the pain under my left rib....once after my divorce from my abusive ex...they did a ct scan with dye and I was perfect...ugh idk. And that was two yrs ago.

Any advice would be great!!!

I know cardiac related chest pain for women is different from what men experience, but I've had bouts of bad chest pain on and off for about a year now. Mostly sharp, stabbing pains localized to my left side, associated with stomach cramps. I went to a cardiologist who cleared me of any cardiac problems. Some days I think it's silly that I even considered the pain to be cardiac, but then there's days like today (having bad pain) where it seems almost certainly heart related. Damn anxiety and acid reflux.

I had this for months on end last year. Went to the er many, many times, sometimes it was coupled with shortness of breath, chest tightness, etc. Some doctors said acid reflux, some said costochondritis (likely if you touch a part of your chest and it is sore). I saw a cardiologist and did many tests, had a chest x ray, everything came back fine.
Went away eventually. It probably was all anxiety.

I have a lot of pain under the ribs, too. Sometimes its dull and achey, sometimes a shooting pain.

And my chest feels "sore" when I move. If I cave my shoulders in, I feel so much tension in my back and around areas of my chest.
My shoulders and upper back seem to always be sore and tensed.

I can def identify with you on all this. I don't want to go back to the doc either, so I'm thinking of trying yoga and taking epsom salt baths.

It must be, because I get back and stomach issues only during times of high anxiety. So is it mainly your upper back?

It's usually my mid-to-upper back, shoulders, and neck and this time it's scared me because it went to my chest.
The last time I got like this, 3 years ago or so, I also felt like I had a huge knot in the middle of my back that I could only feel when I angled my head down.

I have horrible posture at work and it's doing a number on me. Then I freaked out because I read that "upper back pain is rare", and then it got worse. However, when I went to the doc, she wasn't concerned at all and said "it's your posture. Lots of people have it. I'm going to send you to pain mgmt."

In the back of my mind, I'm thinking "noooooooooo, what if it's something bad. Get me an x-ray or SOMETHING." And I've even contemplated going to another doctor, but that prob still wouldn't make me happy.
Lol.

Your occupation combined with your anxiety must be really messing up your back! I'm so sorry you're going through this...

I had this last year and it turned out I had 2 ribs that were dislocated. It can hurt in the front and the back because the ribs shift around. Breathing made it hurt the most. I couldn't breath deeply. Have you seen a chiropractor?

Also, if you have GI issues, the large intestine comes up and around on the upper left side of the abdomen. You could have some gas or something that is getting stuck there before it finally moves around and goes out.

I know these kinds of pains are scary, so I hope you figure out what is causing it. I think if it was heart problems you'd have other symptoms, not just the pain.
