I have been under great pressure for some months now.About the same time the pressure started I started having serious chest and back pain. I underwent various test at the request of the doctor and aside from some gallstones there was nothing to worry about but treated for ulcer. After a while the whole pain stopped only to start up again after some weeks but in a different way. The pain is now on my sternum with some uncomfortable pain on the left side of my back and left arm. My doctor is still treating me for ulcer which he said migth haave been caused by my 'pressure'.Does anyone have a similar condition. Will really like some other opinion cause I am worried this migth lead to some other conditions.
