I am 7months pregnant and having weird chest pains

It usually starts at nite. pain starts in whole chest then radiates up my neck and to the side of my head it is bad enough that I quit breathing in an attempt to ease the discomfort for a second.I have had an ekg ,a stress test. both came up neg. for anything.Anyone have an idea what is goin on with me ? ok doc has already checked me for gerd (neg) but has me on Prilosec just to be sure. No burning feeling,just a crushing sensation, like I am being expanded from the inside out.like reverse crush. And I always eat before 6:30pm and go to bed around 10pm. comes and goes. will come on. last for a minute and then go away for a minute then come back again. does this pretty much all night. but not every nite.

You might have some compression of a nerve root in your back since the only time you state you get this pain is at night.You have covered the obvious sources such as cardiac and gi. Your pregnant so you should not get x-rays unless in an emergency. You could see a chiroprator for an assessment only or physiotherapist. Your famiy Dr could send you for nerve conduction studies or to a neurologist. I've hurt my back and I've gone through the same thing, it's not pleasant.Does the pain stay constant or does it ease off?

I have pain on the left of my left chest. Doesn t seem to be my breast which looks and feels normal when I examine it. The pain is not sudden or sharp but feels more like background pain behind my breast. It can be stimulated by breathing in or out deeply especially if the breath is forced out and feels on the left side of left breast where it meets the chest wall. I have had muskulosketal problems with my upper back and neck where tendons feel very tight despite exercises and stretches. Physio treatment was very effective in improving matters and I do Pilates and yoga now but some tightness remains around my neck and shoulders. When I pull my shoulder back and forth I feel this chest pain especially if I m vigorous about it and my shoulder feels slightly stiff after lying on it which is a new symptom. I am female, life long non-smoker, virtually tee-total, 164cm, 70kg, age 51, periods stared to be irregular last summer (2 in 7 months). Being widowed I am not pregnant (no sexual activity). I m not on any medication and have good exercise tolerance although could be fitter. This particular pain has been around for a few weeks and I couldn t account for it (no heavy lifting or such-like) but I saw an advert about breast cancer saying pain might be the only symptom. Consequently I am pretty worried and thought it could be any other form of cancer too like something on my chest wall. I wouldn t normally look on-line for answers but thought I d have a look for possible causes and came across this site. I have a GP appointment on Monday.

Hello, I am a 20 year old female. I have been having chest pains for about a week now and I am pretty scared about what is wrong. In addition to the chest pains I have been burping a lot weird because I usually don t burp at all, and my left arm down to my middle finger has pains sometimes. I m not sure if that is related because I do hair a lot so for years sometimes my hands cramp up. Also, some background, I have asthma and 2 weeks before this started my asthma had gotten so bad that I had developed bronchitis. The coughing had put a lot of stress on my chest as well but the pain had went away after I took some medication. Some more background is that I had gained around 40 pounds in the last 10 months from inactivity (I used to do sports for 6 years & then stopped). Lastly, I thought the chest pain was from me crying a lot because I had a traumatic event recently and the pain came right after and got worse everyday that I was crying really hard. Sorry it s such a long message but as you can see, I have a lot of factors playing right now so I m really all over the place in terms of finding out what is wrong with me. Thank you in advance!

Hey! Im 18 years old and Ive been having these severe pains in my upper abdomen , but in the center for about a month and a half now. I went to my primary doctor about three times. The first time he said I might be backed up, and so he gave me meds for it and that hadnt worked. So then I went again and they took me to get a sonogram for gallstones and ulcers but that came out negative, so he told me to take some Omeprazole for the pain and if it didn t get better in a week to come back in, instead of getting better.. The pain got worse, and it gets worse at night or when I eat spicy foods.. It feels like a crushing throbbing pain and sometimes it shoots to my back. I m getting weak all the time, I lost massive weight, my head hurts sometimes and now my urination is burning but I went to the emergency room the day before yesterday and they said my urine looked great and there wwas nothing wrong. The day I went to the emergency, was the same day my doctor blood tested me for h.pylori. I haveto wait for the results but Im in soo much pain and tylonol, tums nor the meds he gave me are working at this point. I have a bleeding disease and I can t take meds wihich can thin out the blood more! Please help!! Thank you!:)

my husband suffers from acid reflux . he had it once before and got rid of it. he was eating too much in one setting and because of this i think it caused it to come back. he has been to the emergency 3 times now and so he has just started to eat smaller portions and watch what spices and things to eat. he has been doing this for at least a week now. the doctor prescribed to him a generic version of prilosec . but at times it still causes him discomfort and his chest still burns a little. the generic kind of medication is omeprazole which is a generic of the other. so my question is he bought the actual prilosec. should he start taking the prilosec instead of the generic kind cause it seems like the other kind is not really working for him

My doctor advise is to take omeprazole, because I have acid reflux. My problem is my bones. I m taking phenytoin sod at night for epilepsy and take 200mg . This product is not good for my bones. Am I going to have a problem taking omeprazole. What I am asking will this decrease bone loss?

I have NAFLD which was discovered when my surgeion was about to remove a cancer tumor in the cnetral part of the liver. He did not do so when he saw the fatty liver. I do not drink alcohol and am not obeisi but my natural father died young with cirrohsis of the liver. The tumor was killed with an ablation and then chimo beeds in artery by tumor. I take Omeprazole 40 mg ever morning an hour before eating for the naseau which I have experience for years (actually led to the discovery of the tumr). Recently I began juicing for breakfast, and increased my exercise routine to everyother day for at least 30 min of fast walk or jug and li? I eat mostly chicken and fish or shrimp, baked or stir fried. I d like to get off the Omeprazole.
