I found on new MRI C-7 nerve is being affected. However, I get a pain in left center of chest upon arising in the moring and it's staying pretty much all day. Heart Dr. didn't want to do Heart Cath until MRI issues ruled out, as he thought pain is coming from the neck. I faxed copy of report to him 4 days ago, have not heard a word back and the pain in chest and weakness in shoulders and arms started as soon as I got up. I also have a bit of edema in my upper abdomen that's been happening recently with an odd stiffness up the back of my neck. Hot soaky baths didn't really help. If anyone knows, could the chest pain be coming form a C-7 disk against the nerve? I did hear it's the nerve going into my left arm. Or could it be withdrawal symptoms from the new verson of Oxycontin that is not taking pain away?
Cervical Problem cause chest pain?

I'm just adding this because I felt led to do so..... trust me, I'm not looking for things. I've had small lumps right under my left rib cage, and recently it seemed like they was gone, YEA!, but I noticed a pinchy feeling when I bent over the other day and felt one or two of them are back, and bottom rib has sore place. The lumps tend to move around,but they give a feeling of pinching type pain. Go figure, could it have something to do with the chest pain which could be upper stomach, i just don't know and I'm so tired of feeling like a hypocondriac. I am so weak, I don't know how to live like this anymore. I am at work, and thankful for my job, but they deserve better than what I'm giving them. Praise God for all things, even this mess, surely HE is working in this for my good.
I'm sorry I don't have an answer for you but I didn't want you to think that no one cared, because we do. You didn't mention your age but if it were me I would be knocking the heart doctor's door down. Any pain going on in the chest should be investigated - heart attacks do happen and you don't want to have one. Doctor's offices get busy and messages get lost - don't let them lose you in the shuffle. And yes, praise God that we know He can use this situation for His Glory! Amen!
nerve pain can be very painful and if it's around ur chest or shoulder it will drive you crazy from the pain.and any injury to your ribs will cause a lot of pain!please see your doctor he is the only one who can find out what is going on with your body!it is no fun being in pain !and no one has the right to think you are a hypo.just because your in pain and you don't need to think that!
good luck & God bless
