First I want to say I am very touched by the amount of comments and prayers from my blogger friends going out to me today. Im so happy and comforted by your words and just to know that you all have been praying for my situation. I saw my family doctor yesterday, and all my blood work came back normal. My EKG did not show anything either. This is good! My xray showed arthritis in my back. Not good! I will however still be seeing a heart doctor...this still needs to be scheduled. They will just run a few other tests to just be on the safe side. For now my doctor is calling this chest pain Costochondritis. This condition will mimic the same feelings as a heart attack. It is basically Inflammation of the cartilage that joins the ribs to the breastbone (called costal cartilages). The chest pain of costochondritis sometimes is severe, as mine was like a heart attack. Costochondritis usually, but not always, involves one side of the breastbone. But mostly in the middle of the chest. Sometimes the pain can extend to the shoulder or arm on the involved side. The information I have on it says it should go away in 2 weeks. Very strange. No treatement for it , and no reason for it to come on. Just to have more comfort,I will still see the heart doctor since heart desease runs in our family. Costochondritis is not see on xray, it is just diagnosed by the way your sympotoms are. Here is a site with some more information if you like: http://www.emedicinehealth.com/costochondritis/article_em.htm Thank you for continues prayers and we seek another opionion...we hope this is all that it is and it just clears up fast. Makes everything a little more challenging. With my shoulder pain keeping me from being able to do some of the normal things...and now this...I continue to lean on HIM for my hope, for my strength, for my complete healing!!
GOd bless and thank you for your encouragement...you have no idea how much that means to me!
