Doctor Yesterday

So, yesterday I went to the doctor they gave me a ekg, took a few blood test, and gave me a chest x-ray and everything was normal. But then the doctors started talking about how I had a thoracic spine pinched nerve injury that was causing me chest pain but my heart was fine. I'm nervous tho cause I was looking up thoracic spine and they said this injury could cause heart problems so now I'm freaking out. It can be fixed with physical therapy and I go there in another 4 days. I'm only 18!!

Hello, There are a lot of nerves that run out of the thoracic spine, if the one that is pinched was of concern -that could potentially lead to heart problems- then they would have had you monitored. So that's good news there! Phys therapy will definitely help and relieve some of the health anxiety.

Hope this helps!


Thanks 😊
