I will be looking into your question and guiding you through the process. Please write your question below.

I am having chest pain but all of my reports are OK. What could be the reason for this?

I have been having chest pain, pain between my shoulders an arm pain. I went to the ER last month when it first started and they did an EKG and said my heart was perfect. BP 117/70 heart rate 70. They said I was having anxiety. I went to my regular doctor who agreed and put me on Celexa 10 mg. Since then I have been to 5 doctors but I still feel like crap everyday. I'm concerened they are blowing me off because I'm 25/female. I read stuff on the internet that says that Dr's usually miss things like this. Am I crazy or do I have a real reason to be so scared? Yes one was a cardiologist but he wouldn't do a stress test because he said it wasn't warranted. I paid for that visit out of pocket because my insurance said there was no reason for a referral.

Consider this statement that I found on a website: I spent 6 weeks in a Pain Management Program where I learned to deal with the pain. I explored a number of non-traditional healing techniques, as well – the most successful of which was NCR or Neural Cranial Restructuring http://www.ncrdoctors.com/faq/index.htm . However, not one doctor asked me how much water I drank each day. Finally, after 8 years of suffering from what was basically undiagnosed chronic pain in the right mastoid area of my skull, I began to develop very severe heartburn that was actually worse than the head pain because it was so acute. I did a Google search for heart burn and found http://www.watercure.com. As I read the information there, I found that all I needed to do was drink more water to cure the heart burn. But, as I read further, I also read that pain in general could be caused by dehydration. I immediately thought to myself, “No, it couldn’t be THAT simple – could it?” I actually didn’t start taking water more seriously yet, but I did order the book, Your Body’s Many Cries for Water. It was the day that the book arrived and I had a chance to read parts of it that I decided to try it. So, I began drinking 2 qt. of water per day. After only 3 days, my pain was reduced by 75 percent! It took a total of 2 more weeks before the pain was completely gone. This occurred in June of 2003. Beginning in August of 2003, I began to rock climb again. The following winter, I skied again for the first time in 6 years. Now, it is July of 2004, and I’m climbing more and slowly getting back to where I was before all this happened. The moral of this story: Take Water Seriously! Until now, I have to be very honest that I never took water intake seriously. I also avoided salt on my food. This was a very dangerous combination, as I was later to find out. I have to thank Dr. Batmanghelidj and www.watercure.com for giving me my life back – and Google for pointing me in that direction!

Hi Doctor, I am a female, 26 year hailing from India and live with my husband in Kuwait. Since yesterday, I have been feeling a slight discomfort with a chest pain that just disappeared after some minutes. But again since today morning, I have been experiencing a very slight chest pain along with a severe shoulder (around the top-middle back) pain and it hurts when I eat or swallow something. I can feel the food rubbing against the chest and this hurts my back right behind the chest (rib cage area). Its little difficult to even swallow water or saliva. I just want to mention that a few days back I did a strenous job of lifting something quite heavy. Could that be the reason for this discomfort? Its winter here and very cold too. I work as a Secretary in office and being busy my shulder hurts more when I sit in front of the computer for 8 hours. Could any one of these be the reasons for this problem and what is the remedy? should I consult a doctor immediately? or is it ok to wait for another day. Kindly advise. Thankyou.
