This is my first time posting on this board, but I have a question I hope someone can answer. Last week I had to lift my mom and put her in a car (end stage lung cancer) she is too weak to move on her own. As I was bending over to put her in the car seat, I felt like I may have pulled a muscle or something.
It's been right a week now since I did it and it still hurts. It aches when I'm sitting still and if I take a deep breath it hurts like hell. Now, the complicating factor. I have heart issues. Since this happened with my mom, I get short of air, what feels like palpitations and my pulse rate increases.
Now, I don't know if the palpitations are actual muscle spasms or palpitations. I've transported people before with back pain that did turn out to be a posterior heart attack.
So, my question to everyone - for those people with pulled muscles/disk issue in the thoracic area...what does it feel like? I'm going to make a doctors appointment to be on the safe side, but was curious what others have had in the past?
