Is mid lower chest pain benign if i had two normal stress tests? I have MS to. This pain radiates to my back.

Reassuring: But your pain could be due to many other causes, such as thoracic spine disc problem, gastroesophageal reflux, even an "MS hug". Further testing is in order. But if you have MS, are you NOT taking medication to control your neurological issues? See your doctors and get this addressed. ...Read more

Headache, lightheaded, nauseous after eating, pain in mid left side from front to back, and chest pain?

GI tract problem: Your symptoms in my opinion, strongly suggest a problem within your G.I. tract. However, the exact location can be anywhere from the Gastroesophageal Junction down to the very end of the stomach or beginning of the small intestine called the duodenum. I suggest a good workup either by your primary physician or a gastroenterologist. ...Read more

Dull chest pain that comes and goes between breasts that radiates to the mid upper back. Stretching back feels better. Gerd? Gas? Muscles? Posture?

Muscular features.: As stretching helps it is likely this is muscular pain. Mid upper back ache is often posture related. Heat, stretching and Ibuprofen may be helpful, but if it persists you should see your doctor and get a chest xray. ...Read more

I am having back and chest pain, two xrays showed nodule on mid left lung, having CT wed. Could also have opacified sinus sphenoid? Pneumonia?

I am having back and chest pain, two xrays showed nodule on mid left lung, having CT  wed. Could also have opacified sinus sphenoid? Pneumonia?

Pneumonia unlikely: If only back/chest pain symptoms, pneumonia unlikely--expect cough, phlegm, fever, malaise. Chest pain on deep breathing may indicate pleurisy, probably viral in origin. Opacified sinus probably related to nasal mucosal irritation from smoking. Agree with planned eval of nodule. Look for other causes of back and chest pain--new exercise? New position in work? ...Read more
