Loss of Appetite, Pain on my chest (left)Fatigue and weight loss
I had gallstones remova four weeks ago. The first two weeks I was fine and feeling healthy. Two weeks later I started feeling a chest pain on left side, fatigue, no appetite and I am losing weight. I sometimes have stiff and heavy shoulders with neck pain. I sometimes feel like my neck muscles are pulled and gets tired. When I have the left side pain it makes the whole side down to the leg a bit numb. I consulted with my doctor, they did tests. My thyroid test results are perfect even the heart is in good condition and generally according to the doctor I am healthy. And one other thing I am a chronic Hypertension patient and takes my medication. I am also not eating well. Is there something wrong?

Hi there,
A clinical evaluation is absolutely necessary for determining the accurate cause of your symptoms. Chest pain and discomfort could possibly be due to acid reflux, irritable bowel syndrome, sphincter of Oddi dysfunction, pancreatitis or any other cause. Heart problem has already been ruled out. Transient ischemic attacks, peripheral neuropathy, stroke, a pinched nerve and cervical disc herniation all can cause these symptoms.In thoracic outlet syndrome there can be pain, numbness and tingling. The possible causes of thoracic outlet syndrome are cervical rib, poor posture, increased joint pressure, traumatic injuries, repetitive activity etc.See a neurologist. A complete neurological examination and MRI cervical spine may be helpful. Do keep me posted with more details.
Best luck and take care.

Thank you for your response.  I will consider your advice.  I have also considered doing light exercises in the house, thinking of depression and for the past two days I feel much better.  I will keep on trying with my exercises but as mentioned above I will still go see the doctor.
