Feels as if my chest constrict and I have to breath more deeply to feel okay, my pulse skip a beat and slow way down. You ever felt like someone took your lungs and heart in a fist and try to squeeze it to a pulp, that s how it feels to me. I m 46 and have had a heart scan which shows nothing abnormal.

For years Ive been bloated, gassy and cramped. I cant gain weight. I wake up with gas and bad taste in my mouth. I have no sinus infections but I always have bad breath ( I brush and floss daily). Ive done almost every test possible and there all clear. My doctor says its IBS and there's nothing he can do, to help (which I find hard to believe). Im a 43 yr old male 5' 11" and 140lbs.
I calculated my diet at approx. 2800-3000 calories a day. My job is not physically demanding and Ive stopped weight training.
Any help would be just great, thanks.
