Acid Reflux / GERD Message Board

Acid Reflux / GERD Board Index

I've been having chest pressure and nausea for one week. I have the constant need to burp and sometimes it feels as if I have trapped gas in my chest and can't burp. I have had three severe attacks which have caused extreme pressure in my chest, heart palpitations, sweating, dizziness and shortness of breath. The pain is so severe I am doubled over and don't have the strenghth to talk. I went to ER twice, blood work and EKG came back normal. The first time in ER I was told it was anxiety and the second time the doctor said he suspects it may be Esophagitis due to Acid Reflux and prescripted Protonix.

I've been taking Protinix for two days and have also been taking Gaviston. I've been only eating applesauce, toast and oatmeal due to the nausea and fear of bringing on another attack. I'm not sure the medication is working as I'm continuing to have pressure in my chest which is usually worse after I eat or at night while sleeping. I've also started to have pain in my back, in between the shoulder blades or under the right shoulder blade.

The Gaviston doesn't seem to provide any relief. How long before the Protonix starts working? I haven't been able to sleep or go to work as I am so uncomfortable. After searching online I thought it might be my gallbladder, but I have not had any pain in my abdomen. Does this sound like Acid Reflux? Any suggestion as to what I can do to relieve the symptoms. I see my doctor this afternoon.
