I'm 38, 5'7", 180lbs., fairly athletic build, non smoker, non drinker, and I have what feels like a nerve pain or something. It comes and goes, and it usually radiates around my left shoulder blade. Sometimes I can feel a prickling type of sensation under the surface of the skin, around the left side of my chest, and sometimes it will shoot down either side of my sternum.
I went to the cardiologist 2 years ago, along with 3 ER trips in the last 2 years, and have been told it is not my heart.
If I am sitting, it tends to aggravate it more often than standing.
I am seeing a chiropractor, and outside of him doing his adjustments, he doesn't feel the need for x-rays or anything. He said he can't really feel anything out of place or whatever.
I do have some slight scoliosis in the middle of my back, and the top of my spine in my neck, does have a slight curve to my right side.
I know this could be any number of things. Anyone experience anything like this on a frequent basis? Can a chiropractor diagnose a pinched nerve or bulging disk?
