Hi, like your doctor mentioned it could be a muscle pull or strain. It may not be related to the heart, if with touching you are getting pain it is likely to be an inflammation of the skin, subcutaneous tissue or the trachea. This can happen with injury, repetitive activity or an infection of the skin. It can also be an enlarged lymph node or an inflammation of the thyroid gland. If it persists discuss these options with your doctor. In the meantime for pain relief you can use OTC tylenol (acetaminophen). Regards.
bump to the top for some help...
I went to the doctor and he says that my blood pressure is 120/80. The EKG looked good and thought my neck vein issue was some strain or pull. He did say that my heart was beating a little fats with palpitations. What could this mean? Anxiety or maybe there is an issue?
He did send for an echo and blood tets for thyroid functioning.
