[QUOTE=iworrytomuch;5361783]Hi all,

Yesterday I was told by my gp that I have acid reflux. Since march I have had ECG and blood tests due to chest tightness/pains, been told I am suffering from anxiety which is causing my chest tightness and also been treated for a chest infection. Yesterday it was a different gp I saw who after listening to my symptoms said he was 99% it is acid reflux causing the symptoms. I have tight chest, sometimes shooting pains in chest and under breast/rib area, feeling of a lump I'm my throat, hoarseness in my throat aand feeling like I need to cough or clear my throat all the time. Sometimes the pain is felt I'm my shoulders and back. I also have some pressure im my abdomen if i slouch while sittimg. Has anyone else with acid reflux had the same symptoms or more symptoms? I would love to hear from you to put my mind at ease as I'm worrying and anxious even more now than ever. ThaNk you.[/QUOTE]

I have most of what you have. I don't have a chest infection. I was on Prevacid for a few months and it didn't help at all so I TRY to keep to a diet, but that doesn't always help. I have almost constant coughing or choking to the point of vomiting 4 different times. My old ENT told me I have silent GERD, but did nothing for me or told me anything about it. I researched all myself. I told him, at the time, that the mucus from my nose goes into my throat constantly especially when I cry and hardly any comes out of my nose. He told me I had to live with it. Finally figured out it was the reflux just coming from my stomach up into my throat and nose. I also have costochrondritis which hurts below my breast near the ribs. You might want to google that too. Wishing you good luck & a hug.

I have came across costochondtitis and actually suggested this to my gp who said yes its possible after my chest infection but just said to take ibuprofen. Does Costo tend to linger and is it quite common with gerd? I do worry its something more but my gp doesn't think it is. I'm suffering with anxiety too and ATM have awful sore and tight neck. Does anyone else have anxiety too. Sorry for all the questions.
