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

This answer was rated:

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.

Thanks for this question

have you considered a cervical or thoracic disc issue?

Are you there?

Yes, I'm here

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

an MRI would show it

Ok, I was thinking it may be a hernia in my groin? Also but clearly I'm not a doctor

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

Are you there Dr?

I can't see how that would possibly be related

the pressure in the groin that is

Customer: replied 1 year 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

It may be stress?

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

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 1 year 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

might be a hernia

that should be checked with ultrasound

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Is hernia life threatening?

not usually. No but it should be checked

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Could hernia give me these heart attack like symptoms


Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Is the sore arm chest then more likely stress?


Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Ok, so if I got an ultrasound would that cover all bases?


Customer: replied 1 year ago.
In your opinion what do you think this is?

either anxiety/stress or a disk issue

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
What symptoms would the disc issue create?

pain, numbness, tingling

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Would my neck not be sore? I used to box so may have banged my head a few times
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Can the neck issue, if I have one, be fixed

Yes with physio
