Anyone live in Tennessee or close to Tn?
I am in severe stabbing pain in center of thoracic. I know I have about 4 bad areas (see profile). I am going for a new MRI on the 15th. I had to do therapy for rotator cuff surgery & I think I have caused something else to happen or be worse.
I went to the ER Fri evening after feeling I was going to pass out but didn't . It lasted about 12 min... My feet felt numb, tingling, arms also, stabbing in thoracic back (always). & out front... BP was really high & I has irregular heartbeat which I've had before, I take atenenol. They did the blood work to rule out heart attack, blood clot in head (stroke). Did a stress test lying down, & echo. & discharged me about 36 hrs later. I am scare to death.
I really feel like my thoracic area is pushing against cord worse & causing something to happen to my heart (skip beats , blood pressure to change, etc).
I can NOT sit at all with out pain.... Hardly can find a position to lay ..... Only pain relief is standing or walking but legs are so weak.....
I stay so cold all the time!!
Please help..... All oath spine dr's. I have been to in the past just say " there is nothing can do". You don't want surgery...... I don't know how I can live rest my life in this constant, depressing pain with a knife in my back, ,,,,,,plus fear of heart getting off beat!!!!!
Has anyone else had anything similar or my symptoms??? Do your arms, legs feel really cold tingling??
Do you know of a good spine Dr in Tennessee or close by.. I have researched but can't determine.
Many thanks & would appreciate your prayers...
