I have recently been experiencing pain in my chest. This pain occurs after sitting at the computer chair or sewing for a length of time. It feels like there is a large boulder in my chest and it's pressing on my esauphegus. Swallowing large gulps of liquid seems to relieve it somewhat. I used to get complete relief when changing my chair to the laz-e-boy chair and sitting in a reclined position. But, now the pain is constant and only relieved after several hours of gulping tea or some such liquid. I used to feel better after laying flat but now it's a different story. Last time it occured I had to put lots of pillows under my head and chest to be able to get to sleep. I am terribly concerned about this - I had been concerned that it was my heart but my Dr. ran an ekg and said it wasn't my heart. I have only recently become aware of the thymus gland and it's location. From what I've read - it seems like that is the location my pain is generating from. I must also add that I have scoliosis (not sure of degree - thorasic) and am being seen by a neurologist for a diagnosis of other neuro symptoms he thinks may be MS. Please help me ferret this out. I am desperate!!
