I have been suffering from random sharp sporadic chest pains in the middle of mychesg and often to the side near the middle of the rib cage. They are very random and more apparent when taking deep breathes and moving suddenly as well as laughing or yawning. I also have been suffering from Tachycardia (high resting heartbeat - over 100) for the past month too. My doc has been investigating over the past month and initially it was thought my Thyroxine dose was too high which has been lowered. We tried meds to reduce acid in stomach as they thought it was gastro reflux related but again that hasn't helped. In between the pain was very severe and my chest became very tight which was scary. It lasted about an hour and once it calmed down I rang NHS direct and explained the feeling. They sent a ambulance within minutes which I was surprised by. They did an ECG right away which was normal but blood pressure was really high 150/106. They also did an chest X-ray which came back normal. I was sent home but told to monitor symptoms and should it happen again ring 999 immediately. It hasn't happened so severely since thank god and this was about 2 weeks ago.
I have recently also undergone a chest CT scan and that came back with no abnormalities, no clots, lung damage or boney damage. Although I am extremely grateful that was the case I am also confused as to why I'm still getting the pain. Has anyone else had similar experiences and found a resolution?
Thanks in advance!
