Acid Reflux / GERD Message Board


Acid Reflux / GERD Board Index


Hi I'm new to HealthBoards. For all my life I've been moderately healthy and it never crossed my mind to join a health forum before. All that changed however a month ago when I started getting explainable throat tightness, shortness of breath, chest pains and heart palpitations. I noticed every time I burp it seems to calm down the tight feeling in my chest and throat. I've been to the ER at least 14 times this month because of how awful I've been feeling. They first diagnosed me with GERD and I've been on every acid reducer there is. Nothing is working. Then they said it was just Anxiety and the illness was all in my mind. I do admit I have horrible anxiety but it never got the point where it made me incredibly sick like this. I also have a lost of appetite, I can go two days without eating anything since eating seems to make my symptoms worse. I can't get a good night's rest anymore without waking up in the middle of night with a tight chest pain, coughing and trying to force myself to vomit to feel better. I also started vomiting food that wasn't yet digested properly. I feel horrible and I've had so many blood tests and CT scans done, and even today I had an Upper GI test done and that all came back normal as well. I feel like I'll never get any better from this. I just want to be healthy and back to normal self without feeling this way. I want answers but they can't tell me what's wrong..I don't think this is GERD or Heartburn at all but I posted it here because the symptoms I'm having are very similar.:confused:
