Acid Reflux / GERD Message Board


Acid Reflux / GERD Board Index


For the past month I've been dealing with frequent throat clearing...feels like mucus in throat. Then, came chest pains, chest tightness and burning. Add to that burping. Finally, today was the last straw: I was wheezing when I inhaled. It felt like my throat/upper chest was constricted. I freaked out and called my doctor...who saw me right away. I thought I might be having a heart attack or lung cancer (never smoked). He heard the wheezing in his office. After trying an asthma med, which didnt work, and listening to my heart and lungs, he said he thought acid reflux was creating the symptoms. I was really stunned. With the exceptions of during pregnancies, I have never had any heartburn or acid in mouth, etc. The doctor prescribed Aciphex and told me to watch my diet, alcohol, caffeine, etc. He also asked about my stress level...which keeps escalating with every new sympton. Does this all make sense to anyone? I have turned into a huge worry wart (Keep clearing my throat as I write this). Has anyone ever experienced this combo of symptoms? thanks for helping me.
