I have pains in my arm and chest that come and go, I've had

Customer Question

Hi I have pains in my arm and chest that come and go, I've had these before. They first happened a few years ago when I wore a cock ring, I went to A&E who did all the checks and found nothing, I've been back since and they've never found anything wrong. My question is can a cock ring cause autonomic hyperflexia, it's the only thing I can see that resembles my symptoms. I've never had a back problem.

Are you there?
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 6 months ago.

Yes, I'm here

I think you might have a disc issue in your thoracic or cervical spine

an MRI would show it

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Ok, I was thinking it may be a hernia in my groin? Also but clearly I'm not a doctor
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
The pains in my arm, chest etc don't seem to come to anything but are worrying. And are related to any pressure on my scrotum. In general I'm fit and healthy with no issues
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Are you getting the messages?
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Are you there Dr?
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 6 months ago.

I can't see how that would possibly be related

the pressure in the groin that is

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Ok, thanks again. It all started when I wore a cock cage with a urethral insert, I then tried to pee and burst my urethral tube but that was a few years ago. Since then any pressure round my balks caused these symptoms
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
It may be stress?
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
I do have pain on the lower left of my groin which gets worse if I need the toilet, and it seems related to the arm and chest pain
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 6 months ago.

It could be stress

I'm not sure how the groin pain could be related to the chest though.

that would be highly unusual

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Thanks again, I was thinking I had burst some kind of artery or loosened something. I did start a new job recently though. The pain in my Lower left groin directly above my left ball, is only when I need the toilet is that fairly normal? I think I've had that for a while
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 6 months ago.

might be a hernia

that should be checked with ultrasound

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Is hernia life threatening?
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 6 months ago.

not usually. No but it should be checked

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Could hernia give me these heart attack like symptoms
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 6 months ago.

no

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Is the sore arm chest then more likely stress?
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 6 months ago.

yes

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Ok, so if I got an ultrasound would that cover all bases?
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 6 months ago.

yes

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
In your opinion what do you think this is?
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 6 months ago.

either anxiety/stress or a disk issue

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
What symptoms would the disc issue create?
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 6 months ago.

pain, numbness, tingling

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Would my neck not be sore? I used to box so may have banged my head a few times
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Can the neck issue, if I have one, be fixed
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 6 months ago.

Yes with physio
