245504 tn?1224102916 Prilosec has helped, but when the aches subside, i get a temporary tight congested feeling on the right hand side of my chest, then I go into an anxiety attack, thinking I can't breathe. Anybody else experiencing this?
Avatar f tn I am 7 weeks pregnant with my first child and I have this uneasy feeling in my chest. Right at my breastbone. It's like a tightness. I looked it up and I guess it might be heartburn? But I have it all the time. Anyone else have that feeling?
Avatar n tn I have tightness occasionally too but it doesn't sound quite the same, positions don't change it. I get it right in the middle of my chest, right below my sternum and it is an intense tightening that feels like my skin is being pulled really tight--I hope that makes sense to you! Anyway, thanks for listening and thanks for replying, this forum really has been of great comfort to me in such a weird time. Good luck, I hope you get your chest issues resolved quickly!!
Avatar n tn I then began feeling the usual chest tightness and restriction I feel most days. Located centrally around the sternum, lft/right side of sternum and upper chest, below base of throat.; I have been made aware of a tingling 'nerve' like pain somewhere around my left shoulder/arm pit, which radiates down my arm to my middle two fingers!? When I massage the area and my arm, I can not locate the nerve to releave it.
Avatar m tn I am in the army and ive been going to the doctors and they tell me nothing is wrong with me. When I run not even a mile, the right side upper part of my chest feel like a cramp, it comes on slowly and doesn't stop until i stop running for 20+ mins. the only way i can describe it is; a heaviness, feel like i cant get any air into my right lung at first, if i keep running it feels like im gonna die, a real tightness in my chest, and dizziness.
Avatar n tn Hello, A few days ago I was drinking a 5 calorie powerdered juice drink mix for the fists time and as soon as I had finished my drink I have been feeling a tightness in the right side of my chests and in my throat. This gets worse when I try to swallow. I feel like there is something stuck in my throat and not going down as well as a pull on the right side of my chests. I am able to breath fine and have been eating and drinking alot of water and juice as well.
Avatar n tn It is tight from the center of my chest and extends to the very left side of my breast. Sometimes I even have the tightness in my arm pit and through my left arm. I have seen a doctor for this but because they were concerned about my heart first and foremost once they found out that was fine they gave me no more advice or help. It's definitely not a heart issue. I cannot pin point any lifestyle factors that may contribute.
Avatar n tn I have been experiencing a tightness in my left side of the chest for over a week now. About a week ago I began having acute episodes several times a day. These acute episodes include feeling short of breath, like someone is choking me. I feel sick to my stomach, and dizzy. They usually last 30 min to one hour. I've had several visits to my dr and er and they seem to think it's anxiety, but I don't really have any stress in my life right now. What could this be?
Avatar n tn i have a question, i have been having a tightness in my chest for the last week and a half. What I have been feeling can be described as this: diffuculty breathing or just hard to catch my breathe ( especially when sitting up or standing, easier to breathe when lying down) When i first noticed this it was very very mild,but i it got worse after being around cigar smoke. I went to the doctor last wednesday, just to make sure i didn't have phemonia or nothing like that.
Avatar f tn I do have a funny feeling in the my throat on the right side like something is in kinda feels like my tonsil is hanging half way down my throat or something. I have been on Dulera for a week now and still have the same tight feeling in my upper airway and chest....I'm scared to death. I do have an appointment with an Asthma/Allergy specialist this week. HELP!!!! What in the world could be causing this tightness in my throat and chest?
Avatar f tn The problem I now have is.... I feel a tightness or heavy weight in my chest. Right in the middle of the Sternum. Like somebody is stepping on it and wont get off. Its worse when I'm up and walking. Is it because I'm no longer on the HCT? Is the Metoprolol Tartrate doing this? I never felt this at all on the Metoprolol Succinate. Is my body just adjusting to the new med and/or lack of the HCT??? Am I having a heart attack?
Avatar f tn I am having weird sensations on the left side of my chest, but they are so faint I'm not sure what I'm feeling. It's almost like a real faint muscle spasm, that's the best way to describe it. I am trying not to lose control here, but of course I am worried. I have been having increased amounts of anxiety of the past few weeks. I go to bed w/it on my mind and wake up the same way. I just came from my doctor's office for a follow up visit of sorts.
Avatar m tn tall and currently weight about 130lbs. For the past 3-4yrs I have been having tightness in my chest (on the left side, in the region surrounding the heart). It seems to come on randomly, and seems to be present very often during the day - I notice it more when I am sitting (especially when I hunch). And there are some days when I don't seem to detect it (it is probably there, but I don't notice it). This has been going on for over 3yrs now and needless to say it has made me quite anxious.
Avatar f tn I am hoping for some reassurance. I have been having chest tightness, stomach complaints since early summer. No specific reason brought this on. Multiple providers along with blood work, diagnostic testing and even an upper endoscope last week all have come back negative except for a small sliding hiatal hernia with mild reflux. All the physicians feel that it could be anxiety/panic, but I cannot get out of my mind the physical symptoms I feel.
213398 tn?1202674074 Micheal, I got the butterfly feeling in my chest, it follow with few beats, big dumps and tightness. My tightness in the chest can last half a day long. I discovered it could be a LBBB. Just my discovery. As everyone has LBBB is being told it is harmful and the Drs "DON'T CARE". I learn to live with it. Have a run, power walk or strong coffee. You may have luck!
Avatar f tn Pain was on right side of chest from the bottom of my rib cage up through my shoulder and through my right side upper back area. Also pain in my right arm, sometimes bad enough to feel I had a blood pressure cuff on it. Dr had me get an EKG which showed afib, I wore a heart monitor, 2 day stay in hospital. Chest X-Ray was fine. Gallbladder ultrasound fine, echocardiogram fine. So please tell me why this is my 5th day in pain. I belch constantly after eating.
Avatar n tn I was given three-day dosage of doxycycline and methergine for post abortion and also a new prescription of Loestrin 24 Fe, which my doctor has told me to begin one day after my abortion. I've been experiencing tightness in chest and slight difficulty in breathing when I began to take Loestrin 24 Fe. I called in the doctor's office to see the cause of it, and the nurse told me to stop taking methergine since I was only 6 weeks pregnant at the time of abortion.

Avatar n tn -Hard to swallow -Tightness in airway making it harder to breath (I can feel the tightness) -Face feels a little numb around cheeks -Slight chest pain on right side -Higher heart rate -often dizzy -Ears feel like they are about to pop -headaches usually on the sides and back of my head -some random positions (usually on the back) help relieve the tightness and seem to be releasing and draining a air, gas, or a liquid from the areas and making me feel normal again.
Avatar n tn I am 22 year old male and Ive been experiencing tightness all the time in my rear left shoulder. Also there is a feeling of tightness or heaviness in the left side of my chest.

Avatar f tn I was awaken about 5:30 this a.m. by chest pain on right side felt like a spasm. It has continued off and on throughout the day whether sitting standing or laying along with a heaviness in my chest. It worsens when I am laying down. It does seem to radiate to my upper back. I do suffer from rheumatoid arthritis and reflux which I do see a doctor regularly for and do take medication. Is it possible it is inflamation from the rheumatoid?
Avatar m tn okay hers the question over the last couple of months once in a while I get a sharp pain under my left chest muscle almost on my side, it only last a second or 2. usually I am siting down.

Avatar f tn I have been dealing with tightness in my mid section underneath my rib cage area for years now. I'm in my late 50's. During the night I have to sleep on my side preferably my right side which alleviates pressure from the heaviness I always feel while sitting, laying down or just if I'm slouching on the couch watching television. It got so bad one time during work that I felt light headed,slight dizziness and some a little out of breath.
Avatar f tn I was just wondering if anyone has heard of it or tried it? I hate this chest tightness and heaviness we get from anxiety. I just want to ripe right out.
Avatar m tn Soon after pain, I started to feel tightness in my chest. It is difficult to explain the tightness. It is not tightness caused by congestion. If feels like my chest is heavy or the muscles are laboring more to suck air into my lungs. Today the pain in the back feels more like a burning sensation. It also seems like my face is a little swollen. Any thoughts and help will be appreciated...
