Uncomfortable feeling in his chest, please help him

Please pray for my boyfriend. He is having chest pain and been in the ER and is unable to sleep. They said he is 39 and skinny with no family history of heart disease and is considered low risk. He has been having the pain since yesterday and they said he is not having a heart attack. They gave him a nitro pill and they said it would have worked if he was having heart problems. I had some similar symptoms a few years ago and they said I had acid refulx. Please pray that it isn't his heart. They are making him see a cardiologist today. He called me this morning to tell me. Thank you so much for your kind prayers. Please don't say anything if you are going to be mean. Keep it to yourself. Thank you everyone. His name is Matt. Thanks to all of you for your answers and kindness and prayers. My boyfriend has a stress test on Monday. The cardiologist believes it is a case of acid reflux. He was still hurting and having burning in his chest last night. Maalox did help it some, but it is was still there about 9 last night. Thanks again for all your prayers. I know they helped. God Bless all of you. Hello everyone. Thanks again for your prayers. He still has an uncomfortable feeling in his chest. The stress test came out good. He wondered if he possibly pulled a muscle in his chest when he raked the leaves that one morning. I find it impossible to choose just one best answer, so I am going to let it go to let others choose. Thank you again for all your prayers for my boyfriend.

I am a 66 year old female. Over the past several years I have been experiencing lightheadedness but more recently it has been happening way too often, sometimes it is accompanied with cold hands and sometimes with a gritty feeling in my eyes. I also get an uncomfortable feeling in my chest and sometimes my stomach. What could be happening to me. When I get these episodes I feel very scared. Help!

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
