Chills, Bloating
Mar 11, 2011

I'm 35 years old and I would like to share my problem that happened 2 weeks ago till today and i have been constantly burping before until that early morning around 2am i woke up having a severe chills without fever that shivers my entire body. i have short breaths and it lasts for about an hour. my stomach is bloating and i feel full then i have nausea. i wasn't able to sleep much because my chest is tightening up so i waited till the morning comes and have a doctor's appointment. when i visited the doctor, i told everything that happened and the doctor orders me to have my blood drawn the following day. he found out that i am having a high cholesterol level and he gave me medicines for it but ignored what i had told him about that night then he told me to have a diet and exercise daily. the days past by no chilling occured until last monday when i got chills again and this time it lasts longer and the same i have short breaths and chest pains. again i couldn't sleep because when i tried to sleep i have short breath and it tightens my chest. then the morning comes my chest is still tight and having a lightheaded feeling, dizziness and nausea so i finally called a friend who is a nurse asking for help. she said i need to take to the hospital to undergo some tests so in the afternood i went to the hospital and have EKG, blood draw, CAT Scan (lungs and chest) and Stress Test. they found out that i am having a high heart rate but i passed the stress test and they said my heart is perfectly fine and that they encourage me to exercise daily to keep in shape so they said it was probably an acid reflux or GERD plus anxiety that causes this bloated feeling so the doctors gave me potassium chloride for replenishing from water pill liquid loss, prilosec OTC, and carafate oral for my stomach problems to go along with my blood pressure pills. my blood pressure goes normal and i ate soft foods and fruits like oatmeal in the morning and wheatbread with tuna sandwhich at lunch then fish with rice in the evening. i got a slight relief in my stomach when i took carafate pill but the bloating and burping still exists and then yesterday morning again chills woke me up and i vomit this time just a little ( by the way i have a clay-like but not bloody stool since ) and until now i am still having a bloated stomach and some nasal congestion (i dunno if this is related to it ) i am hoping i wont get chills this time.

hope you guys help me about my condition. my next doctor's appointment will be next week. thanks, appreciate your answers.
