Pain on left side chest, on left hand wrist. Undergone all tests- normal. had serivcal spondilosis earlier. Actual problem?

Hello sir,
I have a pain on the left side of the chest since last 4 weeks. I can spot the pain area. Some times I also feel pain on the bow and wrist of the left hand . I consulted the doctor. I did a chest ex-ray, blood tests, liver, kidney and bladder scanning, ECG, urine test. Doctor said that everything is normal and prescribed Etoshine 60 for ten days. I have a history of servical spondilosis. The pain still consists. Can you please advise me what is the actual problem.

Hi ameyezen,
Thanks for visitng HCM.
This pain seems to be musculoskeletal in origin as your tests are normal. As you said you have got history of cervical spondylitis, this may be one possibility with similar type of picture. You may go for xray cervical spine both anteroposterior and lateral view and meet an orthopedician or neurosurgeon. If there is straightening of normal curve you may have this problem.
If the pain is too acute, one may need cervical traction followed by cervical belt. Analgesics with muscle relaxant will definitely help.
There is certain role of physiotherpay to help strengthen the neck muscle to maintain the normal curvature of the cervical spine.....

Best wishes
