I had open heart surgery about 3 years ago and have been doing great. But in April of this year I started to get chest pain and went to the E.R. but after all day in the hospital the conclusion was that it was not my heart. My cardiologist agrees.
The pain is mostly on the left side of my chest and also straight back the pain is just to the right of my scapula like it"s going straight through my body.
I sometimes get what feels like a mild electrical feeling that goes from under my left arm into my chest area and then the pain starts.
If I am lying down and I raise my head to put a pillow under it , the pain to my chest starts immediately, this brings on the worst pain.
Sometimes if I look down I feel the pain in my chest but as soon as I straighten my head it stops.
Sometimes the pain starts in my chest and seems to go to my back and at other times it starts in the back and goes to the front.
Working makes the pain worse and lasts longer.
I take 2 Aleve an it helps a lot.
