Common Questions and Answers about Heartburn or walking pneumonia

heartburn

last night,. i had 3-4 simultaneous stabbing pains that lasted 2-3 seconds in the sternum/heart area, VERY scary very uncomfortable. i do not know if this was GAS or if it was ACID REFLUX the docs always say either its ACID REFLUX or its "anxiety or stress" related. And yes when im full of gas, i am bloated , have a weird sensation in the body, a lil dizzy,. but once i release it, its like such a relief ! bloating goes away, i feel so good, but its hard to release it.
I check my temp when I get these episodes and its perfectly normal. I do not have a infection or am not sick. Im not even in a cold environment. Everyone around me is not cold. Its the weirdest thing, and I cant find a answer for it. Its like my body is messed up and sending these chills for no reason. Please help.
It's to the point where I can't even engage in intercourse with my partner, go shopping or even go out in the sun. I keep hearing and reading how Urticaria, usually has signs on the skin surface but I don't, except for the really bad itchy feeling. Sometimes I question whether or not I have something else because it's really bad and it feels like I have a sudden burning rush of nails/needles stabbing my skin and I can't even move but only twitch.
At the age of only twentyone I had surgery for a large ovarian cyst and at twentyfive double walking pneumonia. Lately I've notice that I've been having really bad chest pain, so bad it becomes painful but am not sure if it's only heartburn, follow by weight gain, back pain and fatigue. Along with these new problems I've suffered for about two years of swollen legs/feet. It has become so bad that I refused to wear dresses or boots to work.
Typically stable angina presents with mild chest discomfort precipitated by mild activity like running and walking. Chest pain can also be caused by pleurisy, pneumonia, heartburn, gastroesophageal reflux, gall stones and stomach ulcers. You should consult your doctor so that any of these can also be ruled out.
I threw up coughed up blood and ended up having walking pneumonia. It should always be checked out asap!
The flu has passed epidemic rates in much of the country, and if you don't have a cold, I'm sure you have a friend who has the sniffles, fever, chills, aches and pains of a viral upper respiratory infection. This is different from a bacterial infection such as sinusitis, bronchitis, or pneumonia. A viral infection doesn't improve with antibiotics as these infections do. A virus hijacks your own body's healthy cells and uses it to reproduce and spread.
Do you have any other symptoms like breathlessness, reflux symptoms or heartburn or nasal symptoms like nasal discharge etc. Chronic cough is usually seen in cases of asthma, GERD or gastro esophageal reflux disease and sinusitis due to the post nasal drip. You should try steam inhalation, warm saline gargles, saline nasal drops and oral antihistamine medications and see if it helps with your symptoms.
A methylcobalamin crisis can be sudden onset following a stressor like a cold or injury. Severe B12 deficiency KILLS BY PARALASYS and pneumonia. MethylB12 is harmless. In your dads case results would be obvious within 24 hours or less. For me the extreme weakness and fatigue lifted in 1 hour flat. It can be administered as sublingual tablets or disolved and dripped in mouth or injected if an injectable form of the drug can be located.
Your persistent heartburn and bouts of rectal bleeding are concerning for GERD or peptic ulcer or colon bleeding. Your fatigue and lower abdominal pain are worrisome too. There are many reasons why you should be going to see your doctor and I hope you get to soon Dr.
Are you on any Beta blockers (for high blood pressure) or taking anything for migraines, glaucoma? The medication can cause a chronic cough in some people. You can get a list of medication that causes cough for over-the-counter and prescription from your local pharmacist. Chronic cough is also a sign of heart failure. The palpitations you are experiencing correlate with that theory. Heart failure also gives you shortness of breath, fatigue, dizziness..
diarrhea; headache; heartburn or indigestion; nausea or vomiting. Doctor monitoring is needed. Traditional NSAIDs Ibuprofen Ketoprofen Naproxen NSAIDs help relieve pain within hours of administration in dosages available over the counter (available for all three medications). They relieve pain and inflammation in dosages available in prescription form (ibuprofen and ketoprofen). It may take several days to reduce inflammation.
It causes me to have spasm coughing and if I cannot control this to 3 or 4 coughs my windpipe closes over making it hard to breath in or out. The last one about 2 years ago stopped me breathing in and out completely for 10 to 15 seconds and I thought I had bought it. The spasm cough causes it all and when it goes away (usually 4 to 5 days) things are relatively normal although a normal cough stays with me for weeks after.
Should I go to another city and get help from them, do somethign to force mission to treat me, or what? I have no idea what to do, I live with a handicapped mother and it seems they're takign advantage of me because of this. I think I'm being silently murdered. Yesterday I came back from the ER on Ativan anxiety medicine. Today I woke up with palpitations and fluttering and arrythmia. My back also hurts a lot where the kidney/liver is when sitting. WHAT DO I DO? PLEASE!
For several months now, I've had what feels like chronic heartburn. It occurs mostly after meals when I attempt any physical excertion, walking, mowing etc. Although, I can get it at anytime when I'm attempting above normal excertion, digging a hole, struggling with something heavy etc. Taking an over the counter med like Pepcid before hand doesn't seem to reduce the effects so I don't think it's really heartburn.
The subtle symptoms are what most women usually feel(or that men do feel but usually ignore) and of course are not present during an office or ER visit. Thanks for any insight you may have.

But oh man am I uncomfortable!! I don't like to whine on the maternal and child or pregnancy forums, because I know there are so many women out there dying to be pregnant. So i thought I'd start a venting forum. Whine about your discomforts, aches and pains. Know that others feel that way too. I'll start- first of all, baby #2 is sooo much harder on my physically than #1. My whoo-ha is KILLING me.
But then about a week or so ago, I started to get chest pains and stomach pains. It feels like heartburn, sortof. When I brought it up to my surgeon, he thinks the wrap is too tight and it is pains from food getting stuck???? I am not really having to much trouble eating. But he wants me to undergo a dialation, to have the opening stretch, but I think it has come unwrapped already? Can anyone advise if I should undergo the dialation? Or is it a waste of time and money?
basically i have a health problem and i don't know what it is or what the cure is. i was wondering whether you could possibly tell me /might know whet it is. basically i have this problem where a few weeks back i woke up one day to find that i couldn't breathe as my throat seemed to be blocked/closed over with mucus/saliva. i was choking and could hardly swallow the mucus in my throat down. the only way i could clear/unblock my throat was to drink water to swallow it down.
I concur with Jane1975! We are here for support but not in lieu of medical attention that you NEED! Please let us know when you have made your appointment!!!! (pushes you to dial that phone number of your doctor) - Ha dont I wish I could virtually do so! Not one person here can tell you if your swallowing difficulties are due to MS related issues or structural or otherwise.
I do not see any connection between my irritated throat symptoms and food. It is not so obvious like having or no-having heartburn. Only thing which I reliably found out is that overeating and very fatty foods make my symptoms worse (mainly belching and stronger feeling of a lump). Do you have any piece of advice how to find any triggers? I am kinda desperate about that. 4/ I want to try to consume one tbs of vinegar before meals. Does it have to be apple vinegar?
Doc now says have acid reflux, although haven't had chestpains or heartburn a day in my life. Doc says LES valve is not closing/relaxed, but nothing comes up my throat. Am now back on sucralfate and prevacid. It's been a pretty painful process since my gallbladder was removed. Not only am I still have attacks, which is why the gallbladder was removed in the 1st place, but because it's gone, the bile that trickles has caused bile gastritis.
Now the Cardiologist I saw today didnt neccesary think the same thing, he said there are lots of reasons for Chest pain, but could not specify one, ( I don't have heartburn, indigestion, panic attacks, pleurisy, pneumonia, chest muscle pain or pulled muscle, gallstones or stomache pain, these are the obvious ones. ) I think one thing that threw him off was the fact that my chest pain episodes do not have any particualr pattern, and occur at any time of the day without exercise stressors.

I learn over and over with docs that most of them don't explain their reasoning for a particular course of action or treatment, partly because most patients don't care or don't understand, and partly because there is much subliminal decision-tree-making that docs do, sorting through the possibilities very quickly based on their education and experience. It is like being a chef on a cooking show who says 'start with X, add this much Y, simmer for an hour, add this much Z and serve.
If I thought about it enough and panicked, I could hypervetalate trying to catch my breath. The only relief I get is when laying down to sleep or rest. This started out of nowhere. At first I suspected allergies--don't have a problem, but had spent the weekend outdoors and had kicked around some hay (literally) which I felt may have irritated my throat/chest. Two days ago had a chest x-ray and EKG.
He will not sit on my lap without shifting to one side or the other. Even if I distract him with TV or a snack or anything he's all over the place. If I try to make him sit straight he will immediately begin kicking his legs and squirming his back all over the place, and then scream. Our pediatrician ordered more x-rays but I don't know what else to do or who else to see for a consult.
I have had asthma, allergies, bronchial infections, upper respitory infections, walking pneumonia, pleurisy twice, whooping cough, I cannot remember how many viruses and flu's through the years and I have never felt like this for so long. I will make one note of exception...Nov 17th his Doctor put me on Wellbutrin because of my fatigue and I am wondering if maybe somehow a drug allergy could affect me like this. Anyone out there had a similar problem?
