I suffer attacks in my chest, where I basically am paralyzed by pain and it spreads through my body but starts in my stomach and chest.
ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
For four years I have been fighting an array of diagnosis. After suffering a concussion I went through over a year an half of enduring pain and went on to ruin my stomach linen from medication. I got the diagnosis of Fibromyalgia and Hypermobility. Years went on and the pain in my stomach only persisted till recently I got diagnosed with Celiacs. I also suffer from generalized anxiety. However the pain still continues in my stomach and I now have "chest attacks." Pain will start in my stomach and run into my chest and I'm paralyzed by pain for 10 minutes to 2 hours or longer. Nothing helps these spells and I follow a strict Gluten free diet so it's not an allergic reaction. I have been tested for a variety of stomach issues all of which have been negative (I've been tested for acid reflex several times). No one seems to have the answer for my chest pain and I'm only 17, this is far from normal and with all my health issues under control, I don't know what this could be.
