when i get pain on the left side of my back, upper back, i start to suffer from a panic attack, i went to the hospiatl complaining of chest pressure they said it wasnt my heart, could it be a pinch nerve that made me feel that like? should i just go to the hospital and say i have a pinch nerve? the first time i felt like that my hands were tingling but the other times they were not.


  • i have it right now...its terrible
    i didnt have never this till now
  • So far I've had a diagnostic mammogram (good) and a chest xray (good). The chest xray showed some slight curvature to the spine, but other than that, good. Of course because I've had some tingles and shooting sensations in my left breast, my mind starts to "connect" the two and worry that it is cancer. Dr. says that is highly unlikely and that it sounds like muscles or nerves, myofascial pain, etc. Each day I wake up thinking positively, but then the pain rears its head and I start to worry again. Why isn't it going away? I can't figure out what's going on.

  • Sounds a lot like the pain I get.... Have you had an MRI? Xrays don't show much. Only bones. I have a c4/5 disc issue. It causes a lot of pain in the shoulders especially the left.
