198627 tn?1203057607 Tagamet or Cimetidine are 2 over the counter meds that work well for heartburn. Only you know how much pain your in. If you can't stand it, get to the ER.
Avatar f tn One study reported 20 to 43% incidence of heartburn in patients with head and neck symptoms. Also, acid reflux can mimic a heart attack so yes your symptoms could be due to acid reflux issues. My mother suffered severely from Gastric Esophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) and Laryngopharyngeal Reflux (LPR) for 5 years. She now suffers neither.
Avatar n tn I had extreme heartburn, chest pain, sweating, inability to breath, etc. type attacks before, during and after tx. I recently had a gastric emptying test and have been dx with gastroparesis. I'm now on protonix 2/day and domperidone 4/day. It seems to be helping, but I'm still having some of the prior symptoms (belching, trouble getting a deep breath). I feel achy all over in the a.m. and as the day goes on it gets somewhat better.
Avatar m tn You could be Anemic, as well, which is low red blood cell in the body which decreases the amount of oxygen to the bodies organs, cells, and tissues, and can cause many symptoms if left untreated, such as fatigue, weakness, shortness of breath, heart palpitations, and pale appearance of skin, mucus membranes, and nail beds. Severe anemia can cause fainting, dizziness, angina, chest pain and heart attack.
Avatar n tn Today my question is about heartburn. I have pain in my chest, but it really isn't a burning sensation. I know this sounds really stupid, but is this heartburn or what?
Avatar f tn Stupid me ate 2 slices of pizza last night and went to sleep. I woke up with a bad chest pain. I thought it might have been heartburn, even though I've never had it so don't really know the symptoms. I drank some milk and it is not as much pain as before but the pain is there, what can I take?
Avatar n tn but doesnt that cause chest pain...I have NO chest pain. Any ideas? Also it only happens once every month or two and Its not related to diet.....
Avatar f tn This nerve stimulation results most commonly in heartburn, the pain that is characteristic of GERD. Heartburn usually is described as a burning pain in the middle of the chest. It may start high in the abdomen or may extend up into the neck. In some patients, however, the pain may be sharp or pressure-like, rather than burning. Such pain can mimic heart pain (angina). In other patients, the pain may extend to the back.
Avatar n tn the question he posted on 05/17/04 relates exactly to my symptoms which have started a week ago and consist bad heartburn(ive had now for two months) that i take nexium for but does not always work, the diarrhea that has me going to the toilet 10 times a day at least for a week now, nausea where i thew up more the first three days, cramps constantly, and now on the sixth day i am having upper abdominal chest pains(on scale 1-10 the pains are a 2) where my gallbladder is located i seen a doctor
Avatar f tn Ive had chest pain on and off radiating sometimes to both upper arms. also shortness of breath at times and fatigue. also some flu like symptoms. when I rest I get much better. but it doesn't go away completely and in the last few days it has been worse than ever. I woke up with heartburn which is strange because I never get indigestion. I am not sleeping well which is also unusual. I have normal blood pressure and I am not overweight. My total cholesterol is in the low 200s. I am 62.
Avatar f tn Hi, Is tight chest pain under and behind breasts an early symptom of pregnancy? I have headaches, dizziness, cramping, bloating, back pain but thinking its just a flu. The chest pains are pretty sore...
Avatar n tn These completely fixed every single symptom I have except the severe chest pain. I have a high pain thresh hold. As a boxer/martial artist/powerlifter, I deal in pain daily and it doesn't phase me one bit. But this pain is enough to make me want to cry after suffering from it for several hours. I can't get rid of it. I don't regurgitate acid. I don't have a brash in the back of my throat. I have no symptoms at all whatsoever of any gut problems except this incredible chest pain.
Avatar n tn sounds like heartburn or esphogus irritation/ could be hiatal hernia or beginnings of an ulcer/ see a doctor
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.
1180004 tn?1264470354 My symptoms are chest pain, it sometimes moves to my arm but then goes away I get so scared but everyone tells me its nothing just heartburn but does heartburn really stay with you everyday all the time? Ok so it hurts but its a pain that i can stand but its just irritaing not knowing what is wrong. When I was younger and when i would go to the doctors office they would tell me i have high blood preasure and i would start to control it but sometimes it would get high anyway.
Avatar n tn Has anyone had anything like this? Chest pain that sometimes and is mostly on my left side where my heart is and varies in pain intensity. Feels like heartburn. Have been dealing with this for 8 months. I do have GERD and take Nexium daily. Problems started in March and I started the Nexium in July because endoscopy showed level two damage to esophagus. I really can't tell if this constant pain is related to the GERD or somethign else.
Avatar n tn This most likely isn't a cardiac or a vascular chest pain. It really does sound like a musculoskeletal pain. With a normal electrogram and a normal exam there really isn't all that much from a cardiac stand point that would be missed. The only other thing I can think of is to get an echocardiogram to confirm normal heart function and to rule out any structural abnormalities.
Avatar n tn I have never had heartburn, but I understand that a burning feeling is what it feels like. The chest pain I feel is in the centre of my chest and centre of my back. I am only 32 so I know it can't be my heart! I am 110lbs, and I don't smoke. I have been seeing an internal specialist for pain on my right side under my rib that radiates to my back just behind it. He diagnosed me with IBS because he could not find the cause of the pain on my right side. Should I be concerned with the chest pain?
Avatar n tn Since I posted, no smoking at all, and still getting the same pain as before after eating. Taking Axiphex now, and I dont feel any heartburn, but everytime I eat anything I am very gastric and have constant burping, and I have noticed I have random pinching type pains in my lower ribcage on left and right side (mostly on the right side though). The pain seems to be worst around 3-4 hours after I eat also. Any ideas on what this could be?
Avatar f tn I would start with your PCP and maybe on to a gastroenterologist. GERD can produce chest pain, severe chest pain that feels very much like a heart attack. I know because I have had it. And I was convinced that they were missing something but they were not. I just have severe GERD. As said by jayman panic attacks can produce chest pain or aggravate it.
Avatar n tn I am having symptons in my chest like heartburn but a little worse tighting and left side of neck is really sore to the touch or pressed on.
1243543 tn?1269127622 I get chest pain, shortness of breath ,heartburn,racin heart,back and shoulder pain and indegestion very bad fatigue and also get dizzy and feel unbalanced all thruout the day.I have been to the er twice had ekg and blood work also seen a cardioligist and had a ultrasound says everythings fine but wants me to have a stress test this week but im scared im gonna have a heart attack.
Avatar f tn I am having chest pain and tightness(feels like someone is sitting on my chest for about two minutes) numbness and tingling in left arm and pain in back and nausia. i am 37 years old and i smoke a pack and a half a day.
Avatar f tn sometimes i get pain in the right side of my chest and sometimes in the right... i get alot of heartburn but it does when i take a remidy... i went to the hospital one night as i thought i was having a heart attack turns out i wasnt thank god.. but i keep feeling like i am having one .. im 1st aid trained and all the symtoms are of a heart attack as far as im aware i get the clammy palms and around my mouth turns a blue colour.. but this also happens when im cold..
Avatar m tn GERD can come with some nasty chest symptoms and often mimics a MI (Heart Attack). Taking Prilosec should ease your symptoms....however not all drugs work the same for everyone. If it does not relieve your SX talk to your local pharmacist and/or physician to consider another similar med that may be more effective. If you are not improving by all means return to your PCP. I think you can relax that this is not cardiac....but again I am not an expert.
