My wife has psin in her diaphragm and wxtreme nausea. What could it be ?
Thats pain and nausea.
Thanks for posting.
If this is chest pain, then it could very much be gastro-esophageal reflux disease(GERD). Some anti gastritis medications like omeprazole and antacid should offer some relief. Please, follow up with your doctor for examination confirmation and prescription. Feel free to post a more deailed desscription of symptoms and request for more advice.

hi im 37 weeks pregnant and today I went to doctors about shortness of breath its getting real bad just wondering what a can do
Hello and welcome to HCM,
At 37 weeks of pregnancy, it is common to experience shortness of breath.
This is because of the full term uterus which is quite bulky to push on the diaphragm.
This pushing of the diaphragm causes pressure on the lungs and hence shortness of breath.
The shortness of breath will be relieved after delivery.
Thanks and take care
