I have had severe chest pain

It happened last night? It felt like it was in the exact area of my heart. It only lasted about 10 seconds, but it felt like their was jolting and gurgling and the pain was so severe. I was about to call for help, and then it just stopped? I suffer from heartburn, and this was NOT heartburn? I've had no other problems, so what could this have been? Im a 14 year old female.

It sounds like you may have a giant spider breeding within your chest. It is commonly known that spiders crawl into mouths when people sleep. Unfortunately in rare cases, they breed inside the lungs, and once the millions of babies are born, they eat their way out. As they are nocturnal, these pains are felt at night, and are often missed during sleep. It can be a cause for sudden death in teenagers. Unfortunately, there is no cure.

Im having severe chest pains throughout the day and they tend to become worse as I am more active the pain increases. At first I thought that this was from the effects of the many chest keloids that I have along my chest but the pain feels as though its much deeper than just on the surface of my skin. What could be the cause of this?

Helo Sir,

I am Md. Muzammel Haque. I am from Dhaka, Bangladesh. I am 35 years old. I married and have 2 children. My height is 5 feet 5 inches and weight 63 kg. I am doing job in a NGO. For nature of my job I have to eat and drink outside all the time. I take tea more then 2 cups a day (also green tea as well). My father died 2003. I am the elder son in my family. I have my mother, 2 brothers and 1 sister in my family. I have gastric problems since 15 years. 1st few years I took antacid tablets frequently (3 or 5 times a day that gave me temporally relieve). After that my condition becomes critical.

Then I took advice a doctor he gave me some ranitidine Esomeprazole group tablets. I took those couple of months (that time I did endoscopy nothing found serious). But then my condition becomes worst.

I am now feeling discomfort and severe pain in stomach every time especially at bed time.
Usually, the pain is accompanied by frequent release of gas as well as some painful sensation in the chest area.

Recent for 5 or six months I feel long heartburn, severe chest and stomach pain which also reaches my back (pain doesn’t go away when I took medicine), extremely gas formation in stomach, malaise and flatulence, frequent release of gas (specially when my stomach is empty), suffering from Colic, indigestion and constipation (my stools very hard and have very bad smell), inflammation in chest, frequent cough, gastroesophageal reflux, keep losing weight. Some time when I drink water feeling sensation of wanting to vomit and desire to vomit a few minutes after eating.

Then I again went to doctor last month. I did ultrasono nothing found serious but a mild prostrate enlargement. He gave me tetracycline for 7 days, rebipragol sodium INN 20mg and peppermint oil 250 mg daily 2 times for 2 months.

I took those medicines for 1 month but not feeling good at all.
Now my condition getting more then worst.

Now I am feeling extremely exhausted and weak all the time.
Please give me some advice and effective medicine for me.

Thanking you
