Thoracic pain radiating around rib cage, into sternum, PVCs. Taking celebrex for arthritis. Can PVCs be caused by bulging thoracic disc?

Hi, I ve have thoracic pain radiating around my entire rib cage and into my sternum for 3 weeks. Coincidently I also developed PVCs in that same period. I have eliminated caffeine and alcohol, and celebrex that I was taking for arthritis . I m wondering if there is evidence that PVCs can be caused by a bulging thoracic disc. Thanks

Thanks for writing to us.
A buldging thoracic disc is not a common problem and is nopt associatyed with PVCs. The pain in your chest is more mlikely to be due to a muscle spasm. Taking mild pain killers and doing a hot fomentation will be helpful.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
