The common side effects of Nexium are dizziness, confusion; jittery feeling, nausea, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stomach</span> pain, gas or constipation. In hiatal hernia a part of the stomach sticks upward into the chest and causes chest pain, heartburn, and swallowing difficulty. Your husband’s symptoms can be explained by his hiatal hernia. Treatment aims at relieving the symptoms and preventing complications. Medications for controlling gastro esophageal reflux will be helpful.
Referring to your post regarding A/Fib and bloated <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stomach</span>/gas, I too have had the same experience. I believe it is a mechanical effect in that the gas inflates the intestine which in turn pushes on the vagus nerve or the bottom of the heart and triggers the A/F episode. The sensation is located under the left rib cage not in the chest. I can also induce A/F by swallowing something very cold on an empty stomach. This freaks out the nerve and the A/F proceeds.
Hello all! I have had a weird <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tight</span>ness in my upper/middle left quadrant for about 9 years...that used to only flare up during PMS and stress...yet in the last 1 1/2 months, it has become full-blown, literally. upper/mid left side bloating, tightness, shortness of breath, yawning, heartburn, sloshing...and it's chronic now, regardless of what I eat or drink...24/7. It's worse when I am standing...I am just now learning how to deal with the anxiety attacks I get from it.
I then sleep, it feels better in the morning, and I do it all over again. I have done lots of PT with no benefit. I have NO weakness, just <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tight</span>ness and pain. My CK level has been checked several times and is fine. No thyroid issues. Any diagnostic or practical advice would be welcomed.
My GP says this could be trapped gas rising. Does anyone else suffer from constant <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tight</span>ness? I'm very worried and it affects me looking after my 2 children as I am on edge all the time and angry with my symptoms.
I have not had the back pain or pain in the mid upper <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stomach</span> since I have been taking the prisolec. Lately I have been getting very bad <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tight</span>ness-pressure that I can feel in my throat, it seem to happen about 1/2 hour after I eat, but not always after each meal, and keeps progressing until I almost feel like my throat is closing up. Usually if I can manage to get a few really good burps I feel better.
Before I ask my question, I need to provide some historical information. A. I am waiting for surgery to have bilaterial complete TMJ replacement. I have severe pain in my left TMJ and ear. B. I take pain meds including Oxycontin and Dilaudid for my TMJ/ear/face pain. C. I have had stomach pain, nausea & dizziness for several years and take Nexium 40mg daily. If I don't take the Nexium, my stomach pain comes back. My family doctor says I have IBS. D. I get nausea & dizziness.
For the past week I have been having a bit of pain and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tight</span>ness in my upper left side of my abdomen. When I press down on the area, it feels hard like a muscle and it brings me to extreme nausea. In the morning after waking up, the pain is still present, but I can go on through out my day. By the time night hits, it is impossible to suck my stomach in, as I will be in nauseating pain, and my stomach is completely bulged outward, giving me the appearance that I am pregnant.
pylori bacteria in the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stomach</span>, they will eat those carbohydrates, break them down and produce gas. This gas enters the blood and then lungs, and it can be measured in expired air. This is the first test, you should have, since H. pylori may be the main cause of your problem. If test is positive, you get antibiotics for a week, and healing follows in most cases. These bacteria cause gastritis (inflammation or ulcers in the stomach) and may cause excessive acid secretion.
I left it for 2 weeks without the tablets and it seemed to ease although I get a cramping pain in upper <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stomach</span>/lower chest when bending or crunching down. Went back to docs and went for chest x ray which was clear, I have now been perscribed milder anti acid tablets for a month whilst having some more blood tests. I feel ok after a nights sleep but as the day goes on I start to get stomach pain/ache - not bad but noticeable which seems to be helped by eating.
I am not sure about the "ball thing", but I can relate to gas some how causing weird cardiac responses. It causes tightness in my chest and it feels like an irregular beat. Once again the doctors don't seemed concerned. If they haven't seen it in the Medical Books, you can forget it.
Hi everyone, sorry haven't been around, just getting settled in new place and getting ready for xmas, I've been really tired out and alot of Vertigo lately, I've has these other pains in my Back, Sides, both sides and front.. top area of stomach. Sharp stabbing, hurt more when I move.
Just to add to my above post my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stomach</span> feels like knot and sometimes I have a lump in my throat that comes and goes especially if I'm stressed out about this problem. Passing gas helps the knotted feeling...Thanks..
I have had ongoing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stomach</span> discomfort (<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tight</span>ness, pain, internal gas) on and off for most of 2007, following a major stomach ailment in January (possibly food poisening, no antibiotics used) and then illness again in May (flu symptoms and then feeling of stomach acid that made it difficult to eat, caused me to feel like vomiting yet constantly hungry, also shortness of breath and wheezing; eventually given antiobiotics).
Back in June started with upper <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stomach</span>/chest pain and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tight</span>ness, increased heart rate. Nausea, fatigue. Initially went to the physicians, blood work, generalized work up completed which came back negative. I had two events during the night that woke my up from my sleep, I ended up in the ER, more tests, blood work done, EKG, which all came back negative.
2 days ago i started having a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tight</span>ness in my chest after dinner. Then it was a constricting pain in my chest but i could feel it coming on then go away & my stomach would bubble. I figured it was gas build up. As the day went my back started cramping. This is the end of day 2 & my rib cage hurts & so does my back. I went to my chiropractor today & seemed to help for a brief time but now my back hurst worse & i still feel the pressure on my chest.
Hello, I am a 29 year old female, 5’5, 106 lbs and have been experiencing some GI problems for the past 6 years. I have been having on-and-off symptoms like globus hystericus, trapped gas in the throat and chest area, gag reflexes, and nausea. Almost every day, I would get this tightness or pressure in my throat, which makes it difficult to swallow liquids or solids. I would have to tilt my head back to swallow.
I've also had them in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stomach</span> and on the side of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stomach</span> on the left side. Light sharp pains but they're not really bothersome as I only get them when I'm resting and again, I only get them every once and awhile in the day. When I'm up and moving around, I feel better.
I also have been having difficulty passing gas/stools. I can feel and hear gas around the area of the pain . This doesn't seem related to IBS and has been going on for 3 days.
It is a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tight</span>ness that can turn into a more crushing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tight</span>ness, but it doesn't really radiate into my jaw or into my left arm (though there have been a couple of times I wasn't sure). It's always left of center on the upper part of my chest. That area is not sensitive to touch. I have taken my pulse during many of these and I have never detected any sort of arrhythmia.
have you tried taking medication which will neutralise the gas in your body such as extra strength gas-x,alka selzer etc?? I have similar problems at first i thought i have a heart problem and i went to see a cardiologist,now i know i have acid reflux. You need to see a gastro doc.

i'm a mouth breather while sleeping and i know that this draws air into my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stomach</span>, but the amount of gas/air that comes off my stomach/intestines is truley unbelievable. bloating comes along with this, i have two different sizes of pants due to the bloating. i read that some readers feel that we actually bring air into our systerm through the rapid belching and am really getting the air out that just entered the stomach, i got to say i believe this could be adding to the episodes.

Hi, Your symptoms sound a lot like mine -- have you found out any more? After going out to dinner 1 month ago, I felt nauseus & suffered from an anxiety attack that night. Since then I have had constant stomach/abdominal pain & I constantly burp & have gas. I also feel shooting pains down my right arm & in my hands frequently. For the first 2 weeks I was waking up several times at night with what felt like adrenaline surges (anxiety symptoms).
I have a constant pressure in my upper abdomen. Sometimes it can be gnawing and mild. The pressue is Kinda where my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stomach</span> would meet my esphogus. I feel bloated most times and have pressure in center of chest and throat. Pressure feels like i need to burp but i cant. I have an ultrasound tomorrow on my stomach and an xray on my chest as well as bloodwork. Im so nervouse something terribly might be wrong. Im 25 now and been having this off and on since 17.
Have you tried neutralising the gas in your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stomach</span>? alka seltzer can do that,except it contains salt,chewing gum would make more saliva and it contains bicarbonate which will neutralise gas. It sounds like you have too much gas.
growing cultures, checked for parasites, Hida Scan done for gall bladder function, gastrologist looked at <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stomach</span> 2x (found was a mild case of gastritis - no reflux was found) and going for test where I swallow a pill with a camera in it.
