Right now you are having a panic attack! Chill out! Take some deep breaths,and relax. I answered some of your other questions,please go back and look at my responses. Heartburn can cause pain like angina at times,BUT so can an anxiety or panic attack. I personally have experienced anxiety attacks,and my last one,in particular I swore i was having a heart attack. You may need to go to the doctor or emergency room for an accurate diagnosis and treatment. Obviously there is something going on with you right now,but try to relax and calm down. Tell yourself that you will be ok. If you can't drive yourself,call someone to take you in to the ER. There are meds to treat anxiety,heartburn and angina...BUT,you need to find out what is really causing you to feel this way first. Hope this helps. Zoya.

Hi, I am freaked out and I need someone to give me some sort of insight that I do not possess. I m 18, almost 19 years old. I had sex almost exactly two weeks ago. We used a condom and I am on birth control, however, I was on the last week of my pack and taking placebo pills and I also missed one the night I had sex. I am very prone to panic which is why I feel that I cannot think clearly about this. I have PCOS and my period is extremely irregular even with the birth control. The day I had sex I was actually, according to my pack, supposed to be on my period but I skipped it which isn t that out of the ordinary. I currently have a yeast infection. I ve been very hot recently. I ve had to keep the AC on constantly or I actually start to sweat. I had cramps a couple of days ago. I ve had some minor heartburn however that runs in my family. I ve been having to use the restroom constantly and just yesterday I started to bleed just barely. I really just need some advice and insight about what is happening.

I am a 60 year old female, I am experiencing shortness of breath all of a sudden while I am mowing the lawn. I started walking again, thinking the couple of months with theraphy for my back has caused me to get soft. so a 1 mile in home walk for 17 mins causes me the same thing, so I have to stop and rest as well as get a sip of water. Really bad burning sensation in my chest. Today I am at my desk and I have the slight burning like heartburn. Suggestions has the cause. I am do for my physical on the 18th of the month.

Hi my name is J... am 40 years of age n i had a heartburn problem since 18. I have been taking tums, ranitidine, zantac, omeperazole, hpiroli combination drugs etc... I have very frequent heartburn (everyday can get heart burn within seconds of taking coffee, omelette, tea, beer) n can also easily get away with after takin vanilla ice cream, non citric fruits... but am also having trouble with bad mouth and bad fart smells which I think is bc of this gastritis and sometimes blackstool. Any ideas on what to do next?

For the past two days, I have been experiencing extreme pain in my lower esophageal sphincter when I eat, drink, burp, etc. It isn t heartburn but its a very sharp deep pain. I also happen to have a fever right now, body aches, and a headache (flu symptons). I am not sure if the problem I am having is somehow related to my flu or if it is something more serious. Any information would be appreciated.
