Well I feel like my Dr has no clew. My name is Steve if anyone can help please do! I have a pain in my upper chest that is presser like someone squeezing it. My wbc jest goes down every week the Dr tells me something different my platelets are normal 277 and my hgb 14.1 so he is giving me nutrigen for ever now with no diagnosis at all yet. The dr said he has never seen this and thinks nothing is from my chest. My wife says dont worrie well im worried so we dont argue Im keeping it to my self. Has anyone herd of this or is the dr playing the ins game.

Hi Steve. I doubt anyone here will offer a diagnosis or try to trump a doctor that is working on you and no doubt has all sorts of information we don't have. But I will offer some advice. Most of us know our bodies pretty well and have a gut feeling when something is not right. And I would not stay with a doctor that I didn't believe in or one that I could not get answers from. Insurance is always a problem now days as many require concrete reasons for doing a bunch of tests that cost lots of money. So I would ask your doctor what he thinks he is treating and what his plan is for taking care of it. If you don't like the answers move on to someone else. Most of us have run into good and bad doctors. If I had settled for the opinion of my first Ear, nose and throat doctor I would be dead by now. Find someone you trust and get answers. Best of luck Slickwilly

Hi Steve,

Don't know if this will help but I two had symptoms of squeezing of the chest. I thought I was having a heart attack. After going thru the tests at the hospital with no results my Primary doctor stated that a problem with the gallbladder has the same symptoms as the heart. I had one ultrasound and it was determined that I had gallbladder cancer. My advice to you is the same as slickwilly find another doctor and keep asking questions. Best of Luck to you.
