Pain Between Soulder Blades & middle of Chest
LeoJake11 posted:
I have not been diagnosed with GERD but have experienced a lot of acid reflux issues. I just had an episode a few week back where I raced home from work, scarfed down some spaghetti and salad and then went out and did some quick yard work. I ended up getting severe back pain and pain the center of my chest and since then have had acid reflux which can be flare up for no reason.

My question is has anyone had any chiropractic manipulations. I see a chiropractor and I always feel like the pain starts in my back first and then moves to my chest. It always seems like it is in the area of T3-T4 which affects the digestive system,heart and lungs. I may be crazy but when my back feels good, I have no issues with my digestive system. I don't need any medication at all and seem to be able to eat what I want.

I too have the pain that wraps around under my left arm and also into the center of my chest. I wonder how much of the chest pain we are experiencing is more muscle skeletal due to the tightening associated with the symptoms.

Has anyone experienced this?
