    Ascending aortic aneurysm

    Hi, my name is Justin and I was wondering if anyone can help me find out if my xray reveals any vascular abnormalties.. I believe it looks as if my ascending aorta is bulging. I am having symptoms from this. Feels like something in my throat, my lungs, and my left side thoracic back area has a deep sharp ache at times.. I am having leg pain and acute onset varicose veins and all symptoms of POTS and mcad ( mast cell).. i also have hyperjoint mobility.. none of this is being taken seriously and doctor has wrote me off as crazy lol.. bc none of my lab work is abnormal except for h.pylori bacteria and that's not causing these symptoms. Also, my veins are indenting on my arm and feet when above my head creating furrows on skin.. but I seriously doubt eosoniphillic fasciitis as I am having no skin tightening. Only dry skin and feels like my skin is burning and is hot to touch. Thanks for any ideas. I need to know if I need to go to e.r. and demand ct with contrast..
