Suggest treatment for tingling sensation in the shoulder and heartburn

default
Posted on Mon, 25 Jul 2016
Question: Yesterday I felt really ill, with heartburn and tingling in the shoulder, upper arm and down to my hands on the right hand side. Thought it was acid reflux at first as I take pills to stop this. But my right shoulder was burning as well as tingling. Will it just be heartburn or something else?

Brief Answer:
This is certainly heartburn! Continue treatment and observe only for now!

Detailed Answer:
HI and thanks for this query.

I am so sorry to hear about these symptoms that you have reported. I have reviewed this information fully and it is certainly suggestive of a possible heartburn. There is nothing else that leads me to suspecting any other disease condition here. Continue with the medications, especially omeprazole 20mg daily and report the progress to me for further evaluation and insights.

I hope this helps. I wish you and your friend well. Feel free to follow up with me if need be.
