Customer Question
I have had this...

I have had this upper chest pain for more than a month. I have had x-ray's and a CT scan and found no cause for pain. Pain mainly occurs at night when I turn from side to side and sometimes when I take a deep breath. Otherwise, I have very little pain during the day.

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

Never had this before and no shortness of breath. I have been told by doctors that it has nothing to do with my heart.

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

Have a history of reflux, but nothing recent. Even took reflux meds for a few days to see if reflux was the cause, but no change in pain.

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.
