New to the forum. Been lurking for months but decided to partake
29 yo old male with Thoracic disc herniations.
About 1.5 years ago I was having weird shoot chest pains and shoot pain into my shoulders. They progressed far enough along to freak me out enough to get myself to the ER one evening.
Full cardiac workup...EKG..bloodwork and a stress test has come back negative. Ever since my chest and back pain started I've developed a very unhealthy obsession with the health of my heart. It has pretty much overtaken my life at this point. I have had 8-9 EKGs over the last year and all negative...I'm lower risk (overweight nothing else) and yet still I was totally convinced I was going to drop dead of a heart attack.
Numerous Dr appts later I finally received an MRI and they found 3 thoracic disc herniations.
I run my own company (ecig business) and one of my clients just so happen to be a chiropractic Dr. He has been a godsend thus far and we've been on a barter system ( yay) for the last 6 months for treatments and I do notice a small difference but not major. After a treatment I am 10xs looser...no shortness of breath...no tightness...feel awesome. But...by day 2 I'm in the same boat.
Anyway I'm babbling.
Has anyone else developed heart anxiety due to thoracic chest pain ?
