Hello, Im new to this site and I injured my back deadlifting about a week ago and am awaiting an MRI on money to find out whether this is a disk problem or not. For the past week ive felt stiffness in my back and pain/tinging around my entire body; hands, feet, legs, chest, neck, etc. Now this is been nagging but it has not bothered me to the point where I was unable to sleep.
Well, now since yesterday it everytime I have layed down and fall asleep i end up waking up and notice that my heart is beating faster than usual. At first I felt like it wasnt a big deal but then I realized ive been having this problem all week. This rapid heart beat also has seemed to happen whenever i take a shower and let hot water run down my back for a certain amount of time or if I take a bath and lie there for a certain number of time my heart will beat fast and i will sweat a little.
I have never had the problem of chest pain or rapid heart beating during random situations such as lying down to sleep or letting hot water run down my back until I possibly herniated/slipped a disk in my back since last saturday. So Im wondering, has anyone else experienced the problem of rapid heart beat/chest pain due to a back injury which involves nerve pain throughout the body and is there anything I can do in the meantime? thankyou.
