In have horrible anxiety, chest pain. After having food it went

Hey, you guys, for a year now, I have been having major left sided chest pain . When I first got this pain, I went into the ER twice, and both times they said it was not my heart. They did give me Ibuprofen, which was supposed to kill some inflammation or infection I had contracted inside my chest. But today, I don t know, I only ate once, and just a while ago, I got the horrible anxiety , chest pain again. I ate something and it went away. Is the stomach up there, like near the breastbone? Eating something relieved it. Then sometimes I cannnot eat because I get bad heartburn or chest pain. What the hell is this? I just want it to go away. Is it psychological? How do I stop this? How do I know it s not angina? Also, would nosebleeds mean that I may get a stroke or hemorrage in the future?

Welcome to HCM.
To rule out the cardiac condition ECG,ECHO is must,go for it and get relaxed.
Your symptoms is suggestive of indigestion,acidity and is called gastritis.
It could be due to stress,anxiety, and wrong diet habbit.
Try to avoid stress.eat more vegetables,fruits and less spicy food.
Try to get your diet at regular time everyday.drink more liquids,water.....Don't take much pain killer it will again cause for gastritis.Yoga and meditation will be helpful.
Consult physician for better guidance and medical management.

WITH YOUR HISTORY ESPEIALLY THAT OF IT BEING RELIEVED BY FOOD INTAKE I THINK YOU ARE SUFFERING FROM GASTRITIS AND ULCERS IN THE GASTRIC MUCOSA IT WOULD BE BETTER IF YOU UNDERWENT AN ENDOSCOPY AND CONSULTED A GASTROENETEROLOGIST AS IT DOESNT LOOK LIKE YOU ARE SUFFERING FROM CARDIAC PROBLEMS.

I am 56 years old and see my cardiologist regularly for a heart attack (they believe to be stress induced) I had 14 yrs ago. I have rare anxiety attacks which have similar symptons to my heart attack symptoms. I have heartburn, indigestion, difficulty breathing, and some chest discomfort in my upper left chest area. Do these sound like anxiety symptoms?

I am a 42 year old healthy female that eats right, excercises regularly and doesn t smoke. In 2008 I had a manometry at the Cleveland Clinic after suffering significant chest pain once every couple months after the birth of my second child. I was diagnosed with Nutracker Esophagus. Everything I read states it does not progress, however, I am living proof that I have had episodes occuring much more regularly over the past couple months. They have been occuring as close as 2-4 x a week and lasting up to 3 days in total. There is no rhyme or reason as to what I do, eat or the amount of stress I am under when the episodes occur. I had another EGD at the Clinic 4 days ago and nothing has really changed in the appearance of my esophagus. I do not have trouble swallowing or have any food flowing back up, just severe pain which ends up extending through my arms, neck and turns into a headache during each episode. I am in such severe pain with these episodes that I m wandering what can help me and what is causing this. The doctors said that Ibuprofen will not work, but again, it has worked occassionally with the pain. I am seeing a specialist, same doctor who did my manometry, on this Tuesday who may put me on muscle relaxers or something...but what if that doesn t help? And...how do I know for sure there isn t something else going on here?

I was sunburned 1 week ago tomorrow severely on both of my legs and the top of my feet. The swelling has subsided but every time I stand my feet turn purple and hurt terribly. I am using silvadene cream, ibuprofen, elevating my feet and cold compresses and the pain is still there. Is there any more I can do?

I was circumcised this morning and I'm terrified of going to bed. Is there anything I can do to take the edge off the pain?I've taken some painkillers (2x50mg paracetamol, 40mg ibuprofen and some codeine phosphate tablets) and read about wearing tighter, more supportive bedclothes.For further information, I just took the dressing off from around my penis and there was a fair bit of blood from near one of the stitches. Half an hour or so with some tissue paper and reasonable pressure has stopped the flow, but I worry that if (or, more likely, when) I get an erection in my sleep, it might start to bleed again.

i have routine blood work done yearly and last month my GFR came back 59, HCT 31, nml w/ cr 1.0. i have markers for sjogrens, not clinical diagnosis, chol 203, hdl 54, ldl 110 triglycerides 88 and BP is 110/70 s ballpark average, microprotein 44 in urine from 4 last sept. i have no other healthproblems. repeat GFR 58, HCT 37 bun/cr same, chol level same but CO2 20, and microprotein is down to 8 in urine (cut protein down to minimum..i was big protein eater). i am worried about GFR. only thing i can think of that could have caused this is taking ibuprofen/benadryl during a 3 week period when i broke my rib prior to having labs drawn..and i took the ibuprofen regularly. i drink lots of water always. also since feb, i have increased exercise phenomenally. is it possible to turn this GFR around? and how quick does kidney failure take? am i on a downward spiral? i have next appt w/ Primary doc in 1 month, am repeating labs til then. what can i do that i am not doing to retard/repair circumstances? is it permanent damage?..
