UPPER RIGHT BACK AND CHEST PAIN, FRONT OF NECK SORE TO TOUCH
I have been having upper right chest and back pain for about 6 months. It has recently seemed to move up the right side of my neck. I had chest x-ray done and they saw a spot above my right lung and said it looked like a dropped lung. I then went for a ct scan with contrast and they did not see any spot, and said I was positioned wrong on my first x-ray. They then said it was acid reflux causing the pain and gave me acipex. It helped for a few days but now the pain is back in my upper right chest and back. Any help would be nice. I am 25 and pretty healthy.

I think you are stress about this cause you want to know what is wrong with you. We all get like this. If you are worried I would go see a gastro I did and he eased my mind.......

they did a regular chest x-ray and there was a spot above my right lung. They sent me for a ct with contrast and they did not see anything wrong with me at all. The doctor said that I was probaly positioned wrong on the first set of x-rays and the pain in my back and chest must  be acid reflux, but now i am just paranoid about every little pain after that incident.

Get a second opinion if you are nervous about this. Go to a gastro doctor and see what they say.... I know I get nervous about everything. It's scary cause you don't know what is wrong.. If they didn't see no spots on a catscan that is good. What symptons do you get? I can tell you if I get that cause I had reflux for 2 years now and no medcine is helping me.......
