Diary of Unknown Symptoms

Mystery of the Internal Vibration

Entry for June 24, 2008

For the past couple of days that weird muscle pull is not going away. It’s very painful at time if I turn my body a certain way or take a very deep breath. It’s only painful if I do that something to hits that exact spot. It I avoid doing the things that effect it, I’m okay but I have no clue what it is or how it happened. How do I google my way out of this?

For somebody reading this blog, it’s very easy to think okay, what the heck is his problem now? He’s a hypochondriac!! But this is what I found:

Precordial Catch Syndrome

Precordial Catch Syndrome (PCS), also known as Texidor’s twinge, is a common cause of chest pain complaints in children and adolescents. It also occurs, though less frequently, in adults. PCS manifests itself as a very intense, sharp pain typically at the left side of the chest which is worse when taking breaths. Patients often think that they are having a heart attack which causes them to panic. This typically lasts 30 seconds to 3 minutes, though some episodes last only a few breaths and in rare cases can last up to 30 minutes. In all cases the pain is resolved quickly and completely

That’s a really good description of what appears to be happening but what do I do about it? I call the Naturopath and she can see me Thursday night.
