Hello, for the last three months I have been experiencing a constant chest pain with deep aches in my rib cage, between my shoulder blades in my back, my breasts feel like I am breast feeding with out the actual swelling of the breast. My esophagus feels stretched alot of the time. Heart problems have been ruled out totally, I have had blood tests and xrays that are not showing up anything. I do have anxiety which combined with the state of CONTINUAL AND CONSTANT deep aching only makes it worse. The doctors have given me solfracate, told me to take prilosec, and even given me a gi coctail (that only makes me vomet horribly) and nothing seems to help. I have noticed that while in the ER and was given ativan for the anxiety that either I just did not care that I hurt or the pain actually stopped. No over the counter pain meds work at all, and narcotic pain meds only help for a short time. Any suggestions? Could all my pain be caused from anxiety and cause constant pain for 3 months straight?
