Question: dull nagging chest pain

 mommy_9833 - Sun Nov 11, 2007 7:13 pm

I'm a 27yr old female with scleroderma and esophigeal spasms, resently i have been having a lot of dull nagging pain in my chest, i have a tingling sensation down my left leg. There is no pain anywhere but in my chest. This does not feel like any of the spasms i have had. My pressure drops, pluse goes up and it hurts to breath. this has made me feel extremely weak.I have recently underwent a hystorectomy, and adheshin removal, What could this be? I do not want to go to the doc if i am overreacting. I am on Levsin and previcid.

User avatar Hi Mommy_9833,

I would recommend that you have this evaluated. Your pain may be related to a number of issues. It may indicate progression of your scleroderma, gastroesophageal reflux pain, or possible cardiac related pain.

It's best to be sure the heart is OK by having it checked out.

Best wishes.
