I went to the ER on 6/1/17 with chest pain mostly in the center between my breasts. They ruled out heart disease by doing CT scan with contrast, EKG s, Chest Xray, Treadmill test, ultrasound of heart, blood tests every 6 hours to check enzymes. I was kept over night for observation, but I did notice that the pain nearly went away when I had the IV steroids. I was sent home on 10 mg tablets of prednisone for 3 days only.....4 10 mg; 2 mg; 1 mg. When I finished with the steroids my family doctor prescribed longer use of steroids (10 mg taken 4,4,3,3,2,2,1,1. He felt it would take care of the problem. The chest pains came back once the steroids were out of my system. We decided to try a gastroenterologist,my appt. is 2:30 pm tomorrow, but I am almost 100 percent certain that the inflammation is in the trachea and runs downward which makes a sharp pain when I inhale. I no longer go to a Pulmonary Specialist as I gave up my Cpap machine after using it for 5 years. I could not get a decent night s sleep. What should I do now since I told the Pulmonary Specialist I would not be coming any more. Would I have to get a new Pulmonary Specialist. I don t think the gastro doctor can take care of this. Would I need antibiotics. My oxygen level is 97 or 98 and I have no congestion or phlegm at all and no fever. But I am in terrible pain that goes right through to my back. What do you suggest?

Hi I have had a holter ecg done and my average heart rate was 111 with the highest 180 and the lowest 60. I am very tired and feel as if I am trembling the whole time. I get breathless very easily and feel very emotional. The ecg was not normal but my GP merely said that I had a few extra beats. Should I be worried?

I m a 47 female with a history of anxiety. However, I am a firm believer that my anxiety is a reaction from the pain I expierience and not the other way around. I went to my Cardiologist last December and he performed, Echo, EKG, Blood Test, Ultrasound, and even checked my Carotid Artieries (for stroke)... All negative Today I have been expieriencing the following discomfort: pain in and around the collarbone (both sides), pain in and around both shoulderblades, tightness in front of upper chest, pain under my chin. Any suggestions? I also take an aspirin every morning... is that more harmful than helpful?
