Chest pain, chronic, deep thoracic back pain, pressure headaches and stiff neck in the morning

I am 40 years old and have had back pain since my late teens. I have almost 3 year old twins whom I love very much but who have during the past year caused me some stress as it's a very demanding job and has had it's toll on me. My non stop never ending back pain seems to have gotten alot worse, I would describe it as chronic pain as it never ever leaves me. I have the pain in the thoracic area between the shoulder blades and running right across the centre of the back. I have had xrays over the years and they've always said there is nothing wrong. I am thinking of going for an MRI as i'm not totally convinced as it's very painful and I've been experiencing since February chest pains as well, like a dull ache which seems to run right through to the back area where it hurts. I am the type of person who gets very upset with issues and dwells on them and many times don't express my anger (I do to my husband and mother but I wouldn't dare to a friend or relative). I also always try to be a good person and never do anyone wrong. I've just started having homeopathic treatment and i have been prescribed Sepia LM1 4 drops a day. It's just under a week and almost every day I have had the same if not worse back ache, and still the dull chest discomfort. My homeopath told me today this could be a sign to stop as when one has had enough of the remedy, the symptoms it is prescribed for can become exacerbated?? I've only been on this for 6 days and every day I have felt this way so what do you think this means and what would you suggest? I don't understand how it's time to stop when I haven't felt anything different?? Apart from getting slight morning stomach cramps similar to period cramps which I don't usually get? What would you suggest. I am going to see her on Saturday but would like to know what you think?

COuld someone please help me? Thank you.

Wait for my response bcs I m on ur case study and will suggest as soon as possible.

u will never find anything by x-ray or MRI. Only USG test of whole abdomen area may reveal the secret of ur troubles. If u found nothing in that also then the problem is neurological or bcs of rheumatism. But it is sure that u have weak digestion of ur digestive organs.

Make a Ultrasound as soon as possible and let me know the result of that.

U can Take Anacardium oc. 200c one dose liquid medicine at night before 15 min from sleep every day for a week than in the mean time doing the USG u will report me with the results of medicine and also the USG report.

Thank you so much Dr. I actually had an ultrasound on my abdomen to check all my organs and everything was fine. I also had a gastroscopy and they found I have a hiatus hernia. Could this be the cause of all my symptoms? If so do you think that taking what you have prescribed will help me? Thank you so much once again.
Abundance last decade
Yes ur hernia can have those symptoms at ur bosy like that. The medicine I prescribed can help u with ur mental and digestive system regarding problems. I m afraid that u could have some gallbladder problem also, Can u recheck with a new USG test of abdomen??

If things like hernia and gallbladder problem happens then it is not possible for me to help u here at forum, U have to contract me private for at least 6 months or a year.
