Last summer I helped assemble a trampoline and the next day had severe chest and back pain which continued. Went to GP who said I had strained muscles and time will help. The symptoms got worse and led to me having a panic attack one and ending up in A&E convinced it was my heart. All checks were fine. The symptoms have not improved and have had mri, x ray which revealed disc bulges at c4/5 and c6/7 which didn't tie in with where the pain is.
I am still in pain, especially around back and front thoracic area, which spreads to chin, shoulders and arms and rest of upper back. I've been told I now have multiple active trigger point and have tried acupuncture and trigger point injections which have not helped.
The pain intensifies when driving, sitting on hard surfaces, walking and if any pressure is applied to that area of my back i.e. cushions on a sofa.
Another strange symptom is when the pain is worse my residual effects of a Bells Palsy attack two years ago, are made worse.
I would be very grateful for any information or advice as I do not know what else to try or where to seek help.
