Customer Question
Been having a dull...

Been having a dull pain in the center of your chests or the last few days. Sometimes it goes away but returns. No shortness of breath, no numbness or tingling. Sometimes I feel a slight pain in my right shoulder blade but it is short lived.

Doctor's Assistant: Have you ever dealt with this before? Are you having any shortness of breath?

Once but I don't remember it as bad. Went to doctor and all looked fine. It went away in about a week

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I take baby aspirins and a miodarone

Why do you take the baby aspirin?

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Went into a fib in the pass. Doctor told me to start taking them. Been doing so for years
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
The pain seems to be on the right center if that helps
Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 8 months ago

Well I can't rule out heart here but it really doesn't sound like that to me

Actually it sounds more like a gall bladder problem and that can radiate pain to the right shoulder

It possibly could also be a peptic ulcer problem

You need to have your doctor evaluate this with an exam, blood work, EKG and a ct scan of the abdomen

Please let me know if you need any more information

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
