Here is an example. A few weeks ago it was about 715 am. I was getting ready for work and coughed. It felt like a rubber band had snapped on or in my heart. It took a couple of minutes then I was able to finish getting ready for work. An hour later I am at work and sneezed. It felt like someone had knuckle punched me on my left shoulder. The pain shot down my arm. Hand was numb and throbbing arm was in severe pain. I was struggling to catch my breath, sweaty, tingling up the back of my neck and head. Fifteen minutes later, my co-worker had me in the er. All basic heart attack test showed no signs of heart attack. This has been going on for a year now. Usually the pain is a little more progressive not as sudden. Always puts me in bed for at least a day or two. Exhausted, weak, crying for no reason.
I did get a hold of Mayo. We are now waiting on getting an appointment with a specialist in Chiari.
