Continuous pain in shoulder, shortness of breath, elevated sed rate. What is the cause?

I currently have a pain in my right shoulder that just doesn t go away. I have had shortness of breath for about two weeks. Two weeks ago I was in the hospital because of great upper chest pain . In the hospital, a chest x-ray and cat scan of the chest area, ekg s and a heart monitors showed nothing concrete. An elevated sed rate was the only sign that something was or had been going on.

Dear friend, welcome to HCM.
all your symptoms are also indicative of some gall bladder/ liver pathology,
not sure.
do you get fever, nausea? jaundice/ indigestion?
has an ultrasound or CT sacn of the abdomen done?
if not , pl. rule it out as hepato biliary pain is usually referred to rt . shoulder and diagnosis is often missed/ mis-directed.
pl. let me know the follow -up.also results of all tests done.
am concerned about your problem and would be glad to help.
get well.
