could it not be gynecomastia and just rounded shoulders bunching up my chest? could it be unflexed pecs where they simply aren't contracted and give the appearance of manboobs?

As detailed.

Detailed Answer:
No. shoulder has no relation with such swellings.
Loose pecks too so not cause such swellings.
This can be accumulation of excessive fat if it is not Gynecomastia.

Yes, I have a 13 yr old that has been vomiting and has had constipated/diarrhea for a month now. She has been seen by her physician and was prescribed Prilosec and miralax. She appears to be full of stool ( according to her x-ray). She is still having dull stabbing pain in her stomach and is still vomiting daily. She expresses vomiting is not always with nausea. I hope she will not need an endoscopy. I am wondering if it s GERD or IBS. Thanks for your response.

Hi. I am a 35 years old female. I don't exercise at all, i smoke but very actively working as a sales rep that sees clients at different places. I recently lost 40 pounds dieting alone within a year. Late this year, i experienced acid reflux too. After that, i began having palpitations, breathlessness (occassional and short) and nausea. The nausea one time took me a week getting over. I had ekg done, 78bpm is the result. I had blood tests and urinalysis done, cleared. I am a panicky person and a worrier too. What is wrong with me?

I am a 34 year old male and I play a lot of sports and stay in real good shape, I was dignosed with acid reflux disease a few months ago. I have noticed for the last few weeks that while trying to sleep my heart will beat hard and faster like when you have a bad dream, it happens a couple times a week and only lasts a few minutes. While I am awake it never seems to bother me. I have been checking my blood pressure and it has been running lower than normal 125/60s or lower 70s. It normally runs a little high

I am a 26 year old female and I have been diagnosed with acid reflux since I was a teenager. Over the last week and a half I have been having symptoms I am not really used to. I didnt know if it was because my acid reflux is getting worse or if it was something else going on possibly. It started with the normal nauseous feeling under my breastbone. Normally I can feel better when I eat and of course take medications. After a couple of days it turned into feeling a lot of pressure in my chest like a heavy feeling. I also started feeling bloated under my breastbone to the point where it was hard to breathe. Now since last night I have had a bad pain in my left arm, shoulder, and neck. Acid reflux has never been this bad for me before, but I was wondering if all of this can be symptoms of acid reflux. I have no insurance. Im only 26 and pretty healthy so I didnt think it was anything to do with my heart. Could I be wrong?
