II've been battling sever left shoulder and arm pain for nearly 3 years now. I was sent to an orthopedic doc who found my left shoulder all messed up and it needed repair. So, we went and had that done in Dec 2017. Wow, my shoulder is much better and the problems that I was having with that shoulder are now great. I still have this pain running down my left arm to my small and ring finger. A week or so ago this got to hurting to the triple bad F word of hurt. Man, that was bad but it has decreased to a tolerable level but still is hurting. Ther pain in my left arm never goes away but is constantly hurting too. I’m also noting that when I eat certain foods like breads, meats (pot roast, chicken or breads) that I choke and that that hurts really badly too. Its like the food won’t go down to the stomach and it hurts right in the middle of my chest. I try to drink some water to flush it down but then I start to choke because it feels like its all stuck half way and it hurts. I have to sit and wait for the food to go down and let the pain subside before attempting another bite of food. Dam, that hurts and I’m so tired of this. I’m worried all my doctors are missing something. How can I find a doctor that will do a check for this? I’m fearful of this. I don’t want to self-diagnose and undercut my docs but dam I think their missing the boat here and I’m worried. I’m searching for help. Someone please help me. I asking for some help with this. I’m scared.
