Pressure on chest and trouble while breathing

For the last two weeks I have felt like someone is squeezing my throat and heart with the hands making it hard to breath and causing chest pain. I have also been burping ALOT. I went to the dr and they said that i might have bronchitis but I have taken the antibiotics and it's not helping so I do not believe that's what it is. It almost feels like something is stuck in my throat but I have been able to eat fine. I will get shaking chills a few times a day as well. The doctor told me to come back in a week if I still feel the same but they will probably just tell me that I'm imagining it which I know i'm not.

The closest thing from what you are describing is GERD. However, you should do ECG, blood test and urine test to make sure it is not a heart or kidney condition.

I would also do further tests for fibromyalgia and i would not exclude the posibility of high stress as the cause.

Hi dear
Welcome to HealthcareMagic.
These symptoms could be due to gastric reflux or anxiety .Anxiety in turn can cause gastric reflux.I advise you to realize you have no major ailment and try few antacids.This should be treated in early stages to avoid formation of gastritis or ulcers .You can visit your Physician and get examined again for the complete treatment regimen.Meanwhile i advise you to drink plenty of water and buttermilk to ease your symptoms instantly .
Take care.
