I have had a constant pain in the mid chest for sometime. It is worse at night and lying on my left side makes it worse. I have a "flutter" heart feeling, but pulse is fine. I have a general swallowing discomfort but not realted to food. To describe it better... it is like the congestion and sick chest feeling with bronchitis, but without coughing. Sometimes there is pain under left arm. Over a year ago, I had a systemic rash that was thought to be a drug reaction. All my tests are negative - Chest CT, heart scan, cardia monitors, treadmill, labs. The only lab that is off is Vitamin D and I have diagnosis of costocondritis. While stress does make it worse, I am able to rest at home and have no stress with the issues continuing. People tell me I may have a GI problem, shingles, fibromyalgia, and so on.
I am miserable and ready to know so I can get effective treatment.
