Hello. : Hello. Since i don't have a clear idea of what you are describing and i don't know if this just started or if it is a chronic condition, i will provide the following. Here are some possible symptoms of a mycocardial infarction (heart attack). Chest pain, tightness, squeezing or fullness is the most common presentation. However the pain can also present in the upper back, the upper middle abdomen, jaw, head, teeth or in the arms (left more than right). One could have nausea, vomiting or it could feel like indigestion or heartburn. Feeling short of breath, sweating and just feeling out of sorts can also occur. About a fourth of people have no significant symptoms during a heart attack. I may be way off with my response. But when i see back and heart pain listed together it makes me wonder. If you are having acute symptoms that are listed above get emergency assistance. However, if this is chronic pain, than it is likely not the cause. ...Read more

Best thing to do is keep a careful record of bps and symptom. ...Read more

Doesn't : It usually doesn't. If you have thumping, you may be hearing your arterial pulse.

If your hearing thru air is reduced (by a cold, let's say), then the conduction thru bone is augmented. ...Read more
