3 years several breakouts severe pain front upper chest and back tried everthing out there  now consid, botox ?

The pain can be neurological (from the nerves), musculoskeletal (from the muscles or bones), cardiac (from the heart), or pulmonary (from the lungs). Return to your primary care physician for a complete work up and possible referral to the appropriate specialist. ...Read more

I have a piercing pain in the upper chest and back, opposite sides. Is my rib broken?

Probable spasm: Random sharp chest is probably not a broken rib unless major trauma (it takes a large g-force to break ribs). Sharp chest pain is usually a G.I. (stomach or gallbaldder) or esophagus pain (spasm). The best thing to do is sit up (not lay down) , take an antacid (tums) . Sharp chest pain with breathing can be 'pleurisy'. You may want to get seen to get an exact diagnosis. Hope you are better soon! ...Read more

I have sharp moderate pain in upper right chest and back when I breath. Just had Ekg heart was fine?

See below: If it hurts only with a very deep breath, and also hurts stretching to either side with right arm extended above your head, or with twisting at the waist it's likely muscle strain or a pinched nerve. If it hurts with even shallow breathing, and not with the above exercise, viral pleurisy is likely. **However to make a definite diagnosis you need to see your physician and be examined. *See comments ...Read more

Acid Reflux Disease: Acid reflux disease alone is not caused by ulcers. The discomfort of ard is often a daily battle. You should consult with your gastroenterologist to consider a regimen of one or more "acid blockers" that can alleviate the recurring symptoms you describe. Do not worry - your symptoms are common and do not generally mean that there is a more sinister explanation to your discomfort! ...Read more

I have pain in upper rt shoulder, chest, neck & back. Exposed to mold. Pleurisy? Can mold exposure cause this? How is it tested?

Many answers: Mold exposure per se does not usually cause pain although allergic reaction or other immune responses may occur. If you have any nasal, eye, or respiratory symptoms from the exposure, you need to consult an allergist who can perform allergy skin testing or lung function testing on you. ...Read more

Upper back pain: It sounds like thoracic disc pain. Disc problems are common and can cause radiating pain, numbness, burning sensation along the ribs, or across to the scapula. If the pain does not get better my suggestion is to see a spine specialist to get an MRI for accurate diagnosis, and start with physical therapy or chiropractic treatments. They can provide a lot of help. ...Read more
