I am suffering from chest pains. Now its starting to keep me awake at night.

I have been worried about the chest pains I ve been having for the last couple of weeks the aches and pains I m getting in my chest, arms, and neck is becoming more regular. I do have acid reflux and I am not sure if its gas or symptoms of a heart attack . Now its starting to keep me awake at night. I have been to the doctor before and they found nothing. Its very confusing wondering whether its gas or not !

go back to the doctor soon. tell him the symptoms are increasing in severity and you need further tests. gas, as you put it, can cause shoulder blade and neck pain. there are many possible causes for these aches and pains, and your doctor should refer you on for further investigations. good luck and good health to you.

Hello, I live an active lifestyle with a considerably healthy diet but recently I have taken up yet another activity to attempt to tone my torso area which is Hula-Hooping. Like with anything else I started slowly over a few months and now have 10 minutes a night with the Hula-Hoop workout. Recently after only a few minutes I have been suffering central chest pains causing me to stop. The pains do go after a few minutes of stopping but as soon as I start again the pain returns. I live abroad in a country where I do not speak the language comfortably to approach a doctor here, therefore your guidance would be appreciated. I have no history of Asthma or any other medical condition I feel you should be aware of and my family s medical history is clear too. thank you

Hi, Im 36 year 5ft 7in height, 14 stones and swim 2 times a week, healthry eat of 80% veg / salads in the last 6 months via resturants due to work. I sleep 4-6 hours a night but suffer with sometimes with heavy heart beats when swimming that I have to stop and let my breath slow back to when I started, same with pulse, when sitting at work or at the hotel or home on weekends, I get an ache feeling in my heart area but my heart rate is fine or may skip sometimes but I think that could be normal. I get dizzy when the ache feeling but I start my yoga breathing to gain control and relax, stretch and imagine im by a river doing yoga to help. If I do do this, it will still go after 10 mins, not lasting longer than 20 mins. I sit at my desk allot as a manager but try to move around, stretch and laugh to help me relax more and enjoy the day so to limit stress. Any thoughts?

I am having sever stomach pain, it started several weeks ago and has gotten gradually worse. I have no insurance, so I went to the county hospital last week. Once in the emergency room, they ran blood tests to check for H-pilori bacteria. Those were negative. They sent me home with antacids. I went back and the doctor told me I was a drug addict and binge drinker. This was what I get for that. I don t understand the closed mindedness. I don t do either. Never have, although I understand their typical patient. However, I am not one of those, I just have to herd with the cattle at county. I have chronic heart burn, and acid reflux. I most likely take more ibuprofen than I should(historically) and have stopped in the last month after learning more about the side effects. I am highly stressed and have patches of hair falling out on my beard, and head for the last 4 years now. More than likely these are contributors to this problem. Now I am in more pain, and throwing up small amounts of blood. Should I go back to ER? Demand CT, and scope of my stomach? What do I do?

Hello, beginning 4 days ago I began to have hiccups, and they are still with me today. Im unable to sleep. Then theres the acid reflux and burning pain when I swallow food as im swallowing corrosive battery acid. Was some nausea earlier. Are these two related? And what should be done firstly to address the hiccups and sleep deprivation. I am taking prilosec and mylanta and little food. Thank so much and have a great day.

I went to a GI doc because I was having sharp/brief pain in the gallbladder area (this has happened sporadically for past 2 years) then I started getting odd bloating/full feeling in Dec with increased pain. Ultrasound showed gall bladder was fine (this was 3rd ultrasound), but liver was possibly slightly enlarged. My liver enzymes were slightly elevated-but next test came back normal and I don t have Hep C. Upon chatting with doc, she thought I might have acid reflux issues and gave me antacids-my symptoms actually got worse but it did help with what I had initially was wheezing at night (which is why she suspected acid reflux)-though now even that has returned. NOW I feel so full/bloated that it s actually hard to breathe or sit--after a meal or anytime really whether I ve eaten or not...I am so absolutely frustrated and feel that I m being made to do a food diary to see if something triggers it when anything triggers it and nothing too...it s just continuous. As a note, this started in Dec and I started with antacid meds just in Jan...and the breathing issues have been about 2 weeks now...so driving me mad and I m actually short of breath talking even at times...I talk talk talk to the doc and it s lets follow up in 6 weeks...6 weeks of trouble breathing or eating even? I m stunned...and work in the medical field myself...and I m just still stunned and not knowing what to do right now...
