I get a vibrating feeling on the left side of my chest/stomach. It is usually not there with breathing, sometimes it is. It is not there specifically before or after eating it can occur at anytime day or night, even when I hold my breath. It is not painful, although sometimes I get a pinched feeling by my breatbone, not always. I do have thoracic aching/pain due to an accident that I had when I was younger where I cracked some vertebra in my thoracic region. I noticed that I have aching on the thoracic muscles on the left side of my body when I deep breath, but when I make sure that my posture is proper the pain is not there. I have noticed that my left hand and wrist have pins and needles feeling to them. I sometimes feel bloated after eating. Could all of this be related to my injury?
I cannot say with certainty that the symptoms you've described are specifically related to the injury mentioned, but they do seem related physiologically.
There may be irritation within the brachial plexus on the left side, as well subsequent pressure within the upper thoracic spine. Find a reputable chiropractor in your community, or check out www.UpCspine.com to find a potential specialist nearby. It's advisable to receive an examination and have this problem evaluated.
