Heartburn and jaw pain

Common Questions and Answers about Heartburn and jaw pain


Avatar f tn I have difficulty swallowing, pain in throat, cough, headache, full feeling around jaw and ears. I am 67 years old.
Avatar f tn It was so bad, my ears were on fire, my jaw ached and I was getting hot, sweaty and shaky from the pain, had waves of nausea and really felt like I would vomit... I think it was coz I took fish oil tablets before bed. Was up til 2.30am so finally drank some milk. I think it helped as water wouldn't mix with oil and send it down but milk did. Anyway it was enough to get to sleep but today I'm buying Rennie! Not keen for another night like last night.
198627 tn?1203057607 it probably is just heartburn, however, if the pain is severe and you're feeling nauseated, you should go to the ER. It could be an ulcer. A couple months ago I thought I was just having severe heartburn, but it turned out to be 2 duodenal ulcers and it was a good thing I went to the er because they admitted me for 5 days. Better to be safe than sorry. Of course, it could be a heart attack as well, but you're pretty young for that.
Avatar n tn I still feel I have an underlying heart problem.Could this be possible? I also suffer from alot of heartburn and try to watch what I eat and drink. Please help, anyone ?
370181 tn?1428180348 That is what I was fearing someone would say. Jaw pain in women is a fairly common symptom of a heart attack, but I've had this pain quite a few times and I just didn't think a person could have THAT many heart attacks! I also have other health issues, so perhpas they may be connected with this, but one of my "issues" has to do with my heart................hence my fear. But, the bottom line is that I am so terribly relieved to know that someone has this as well.
Avatar f tn At the time of the EKG, I didn't have that episode I had a couple days ago (sweating, pressure in chest, and trouble breathing) Is that why the EKG came back normal because at the time I didn't have these symptoms; just chest and jaw pain. I still have chest and jaw pain now. I feel lightheaded sometimes also. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Avatar m tn Sometimes there is associated pain to insufficient supply of blood/oxygen to heart cells that is usually chest pain, but sometimes there is shoulder, back and jaw pain. Your age almost rules out any occluded vessels, and if you had a decrease of blood pumped into circulation with a valve disorder, you almost certainly would have other symptoms such as shortness of breath, muscle fatigue, chest pain, etc.
Avatar f tn However he felt I was having an anxiety attack and told me to go lay down. I had no shortness of breath. It was not heartburn. Days have past and now I am short of breath. I can't walk and talk at same time and a trip down the hall does me in. I have also noticed lately when I wake up my hands are tingling it numb.My question is could this be my heart or is it possible a disc in my neck is pinching a nerve. I had whiplash 20 years ago and it presented itself as heart attack pain.
Avatar f tn Imagine fighting for your life and you dont know why. Undescribable unease, pain in chest, calves, jaw, tightness in throat, and headaches that make you crazy. You tell yourself that you're young and strong, but your body is saying something is wrong. All the doctors say it is stress and anxiety, and heartburn. They are testing me for an ulcer, but who knows? I wonder if there were always young people feeling this way or is it a more current trend?
Avatar n tn I was in the hospital last Feb for these symptoms, and Pain on my left side. They did EKG, Blood work, and a stress test ( I passed) and said I did not have a heart attack. They did a hida scan and found that my gall baldder was working at 7 %. Had that out May 07,,,,still getting these syptoms. The hoarsness in the morning has recently showed up also. Do you think all the pain is from acid reflux, or should I have heart work up done....I am sooo confused what all of this is....
11072290 tn?1415066835 i have fibro and osteo and i cannot take any meds as i also schizophrenic and olanzapine poses a prob with regards to tremadol and gabapentin,i tried lyrica but doesn't help,i am slowly getting worse with the pain and my fingers are swelling to the point they look like sausages,i have a hiatus hernia and it causes heartburn but i can take ibroprufen for the pain even tho it does enhance the heartburn,i have and still am considering asking my G.
Avatar n tn Now ever since then I have at different times of the day and week this shallow pain in my chest that radiates down my left arm, and makes it tingle and moves to my left shoulder blade and sometimes to the jaw. Along with these symptoms, my blood pressure jumps from a low of 100/50 to 179/95 which is high for me as normally I am at 120/70.
Avatar f tn On 10/31/07 I experienced a frightening event where, when simply leaving for the morning to go to work, I had a crushing pressure in my mid-chest (crushing like an elephant on my chest - no burning), broke out in a sweat, nauseous, dizzy, pain radiated quickly into my left neck and jaw, pounding pain in my left armpit and down the inner part of my left arm, severe pounding in both my femoral arteries (in both upper thighs), and was having trouble breathing.
Avatar m tn I woke up with esophageal squeezing felt it inside my chest and radiating to jaw, i thought it's variant angina my doctor says it's from GERD but i don't feel the heartburn with the squeezing, i'm a runner with good health and 21, could it be variant angina?
Avatar f tn my symptoms are constant feeling of throat inflammation, i feel nauseous when i lie down, i feel tingles in my lips and my jaw feels restless..i cant afford to go to the doctor to get checked again im just wondering if any of this is due to my stomach problems i had previous..i have had gastritis problems before and i do smoke and drink alot..but havent as much at all in the last month due to my pains. i am now currently doing another 14 day otc of omeprazole...
428506 tn?1296560999 ) but the damage was OLD. I was no longer getting reflux or heartburn, and I didn't want to pay for the med. For years, I still have the swallowing problem, but no sensation of reflux or heartburn. Until about 10 days ago. I've had several bouts of heartburn, and a constant tickle in the back of my throat that I think may be reflux-related. I also feel periodically nauseated, I think I am swallowing a lot of phelm (yuck!). I am not eating or drinking differently in the past 10 days.
1115543 tn?1376384238 Well I posted the day before yesterday that I was sick and yesterday about heartburn. Woke this morning thinking it was gone, but its come back. Pain in my chest through to my back, up my neck into my jaw and ears. Its agony. Not been feeling myself for 3 days now, when I get up to do stuff I feel like my legs could just go from under me. Just dont feel myself at all.
Avatar n tn I started having all kinds of crazy simptoms. Chest pains in the center and left side, pain in my left arm,jaw pain, My right side of my face and eye went numbed I felt electric shock fealings on my fingers My toung felt like it was burning i had blured vision my scalp was numbed acid reflux lots of pain in my upper stomach depression fear no energy. And all the doctors say there is nothing wrong with me. I think thats crazy.
Avatar f tn About 3 months ago my throat started to hurt when I would swallow. The whole time I would get crazy jaw and ear fullness and pain but more off and on. About two months ago my tongue started to go numb on the left side, mostly near the back, but it radiates forward and sometimes affects the taste. I'm a 28 male and have seen more GP's than I can count. I have also seen 2 ENTs who scoped my nose and throat, and also gave me a CT. No significant findings for me either.
Avatar n tn I was diagnosed with Trigeminal neuralgia ( a nerve disorder) after about 12 visits back and forth to the dr and dentist and MRI... I was experiencing extreme pain in my jaw, face, eyes, and head. Couldn't sleep all night. It was AWFUL. Once diagnosed, I went to a neurologist who presribed a medication and it took care of it. After some time I went off of it and I have been ok since. They can't pinpoint a cause for it, but say triggered by anxiety and stress. Hope that helps.
428185 tn?1203745389 and since the stress test was good, I feel like I'm being seen as a hypochondriac (and I do wonder about that myself - but the pain and symptoms are very real, so it's confusing to me). Three other things occur to me, however, and maybe - I hope, despite what you said above - they mean this isn't my heart: 1. My c-reactive protein and homocysteine have been normal; 2. I can walk and talk and think (and type) during these episodes and don't feel especially weak; 3.
Avatar f tn When you have your next round of labs (blood work) done, ask the doctor to check your iron levels. Some people have high iron and it can cause heartburn, GERD and Reflux. It also causes pain in the stomach on the right side. Hope this information was helpful...
1328595 tn?1283022049 I was prescribed 375 mg of Naprosyn for jaw pain/inflammation. I've taken it for two days and have had a painful side effect. Ever since I started taking it, I've had stabbing pain/burning in the sternum area of my chest. Pretty much all day long. I'm assuming its heartburn but I read that that happens with prolonged use. I rarely use over the counter NSAIDs, such as Aleve. Could it be my heart? I'm 28 years old with family members that have suffered from heart problems and stroke.
Avatar f tn - I had shoulder surgery on my right arm 2 years ago because I was in constant extreme pain and it came on suddenly, fast and extreme. My arm and hand progressively became more and more purple and black I was getting very little circulation. I had to hold my arm in a really specific position in order to get any relief at all. The only thing I could think that it may be as a result of was a 4 wheeler accident a month prior or a work out injury that I didn’t feel immediately.
Avatar f tn I cannot find anything on line that connects heartburn to the jaw and throat pain. After I was cleared from the heart scare, nobody is concerned about these episodes. I am 80 and all my vital signs are good. Wish I knew what causes these very painful times.
Avatar f tn In addition to this, I have developed pain in my different areas of my throat. Sometimes it seems to ache under my neck and jaw, sometimes in the front of my throat, and the achiness seems to get worse as the day progresses, I will often feel a lot of pressure by my ears, a headache on the right side, feels like my ears pulse sometimes, achiness all in neck. Sides of my jaw sometimes ache too.

Avatar f tn I get severe chest, shoulder and jaw pain somehow from heartburn sometimes. Feels like what I imagine a heart attack would feel like but I know it's not. Occasionally I get heart palpitations (which can be more normal in pregnancy) and if they go on long enough my chest can start to hurt as well. Midwife wasn't too worried as b.p and heart rate were all fine.
