I Was just wondering what you guys think about chest pains. I have been having huge amounts of chest pain. It starts where my heart is and spreads. I was wondering if this along with back pain are something I should ask my doc about, or assume its normal. It used to be occasional, but now its more of a constant thing. I am just unsure what to think about this. Any thoughts on this?
PS: sorry to be posting sporadically everywhere. lol My dad tells me I just like to see how much I can type.
With chest pain I would err on the side of caution and see your doctor!
I have that sort of pain I’ve been told its due to the syrinx. Go to dr. To be checked out and good luck
My chest hurts where my heart is on occasion. I just try and ignore it, but I don't recommend that approach. Mine doesn't spread and isn't too often yet.
Like ther others posted...chest pain is never anything to take lightly..at any age!!!
Have you told your folks about this?? Please keep them informed of any increased pain or new symptoms....I am sure they love you tons and want to help you the best they can.
My mom is very concerned that it could be caused by a syrinx. so I think I will see a doctor:) thanks guys.
Sorry about my typo by the way:/
I get it a lot and it spreads and many times it mimics a heart attack, please do not ignore. Yes it may be and probably could be the syrnix causing it but better safe than sorry. Yes it is aggravating to get it check but that is what I would recommend and it is what I do. The cardiologist has caught several cases of cardiomyopathy with me due to the constant pains.
I've had it plenty, more often before I had the decompression. It concerned me too, and i saw the dr. We had all the tests done, and nothing was wrong (and I'm a smoker.) It was definately worth seeing the dr about though, because now I know it's the syrinxes.
I'm very scared that I could find out that this is a syrinx. Its something I've dreaded my whole life. I find myself in tears thinkin about it. I've always had a fear of needles or any kind of surgury, and I just know that surgury is coming soon. I'm not sure what to do.:( I know now that it is very serious though.
Please pray that it is something simple that wont require surgury.
YOU ARE IN MY THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS..WHEN DO YOU SEE THE DOCTOR???? PLS KEEP US POSTED. WE CARE.
PEACE AND GENTLE HUGS,
Im thinking Im going to see my regular family doctor Monday.
Thank you guys for being so kind:)
Having surgery is much easier than living with all the symptoms that get progressively worse and worse, and sitting and fretting if every new ache and pain is something caused by the Chiari. There is relief in knowing that everything is working as it should and each day only brings more healing. Fear of the unknown is so much worse than the surgery!
