    Chest pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, hands tingly
    beautifulbuffalo posted:
    I have experienced chest pain on and off for the past 14 years. Nobody knows what it is. Just Monday I started experiencing the neck pain, shoulder pain and tingly hands. I just got out of the hospital and they don't know what it is and released me last night. The pain can be any place in the chest high and low. Went through to my back yesterday for the first time. I worry about all this because there is heart disease on my dad's side of the family. He is one of 13 kids and they all died of a heart attack before the age of 60 and some dropped dead in there 30's. My cardiologist says there is nothing wrong with my heart. So what is this pain. The only med I take is for High blood pressure. Has anybody heard of this and what might it be. I'm tired of Dr.s and ready to give up and let my life go in the direction that it's going in.
