User Profile
Hi, I am a 28yr old 5ft 10 white british male. I was diagnosed with ME oct 2008. I have that condition under control but at present I am suffering with different problems. I am getting pressure dull ache below my left collarbone and in my left chest area. I also have pain and numbness in my left bicep radiating down my arm into my ring finger on occasions. I am due to have a MRI on my head and back due to having an episode of loss of left arm and numb left jaw,leg. I ended up in hospital before xmas with bleeding fresh red blood from rectum which was investigating with clear results. I have also lost size in my belly area but same weight without meaning to. Anyhelp would be very grateful

What is ME?
Dull ache under left clavicle and into left chest and pain and numbness in the left arm could all be due to a musculoskeletal problem, for example, with the cervical (neck) spine. The MRI should reveal any problems in that area. There is nothing in the history that suggest a heart origin for the pain.
I can't see any relation between this problem and the previous episode of rectal bleeding.
