Weird Symptoms
Aug 23, 2010
Hi everyone. I am 33 yrs old, female, no health problems. About 2 weeks ago, I woke up in the middle of the night with bad gas pains that radiated up my chest and my upper back. It has happened to me a couple times before, so I took some GasX and within an hour, the discomfort subsided. Didn't think anything of it.

About 4 days later, I started getting this hunger sensation that did not go away upon eating. It is kind of a cross between hunger/nausea/burning along with pain around the sternum. I chalked it up to being heartburn. I took some tums to no avail, and have had this feeling ever since then. So it's been about a week and a half. I also started feeling fatigued prior to this. I went to the dr last week and got routine blood work. Also got an EKG to rule out any heart problems, and that was all fiine. Still waiting for the results on my blood work, but in the meantime, my doc prescribed Ranitidine 150 mg for the heartburn/pain. It is not helping at all.

These are my symptoms and some of them are really strange: The hunger feeling/burning/nausea; the nausea comes and goes, but the hunger feeling is there non stop - doesn't get better or worse with eating, discomfort up the middle of my chest and around sternum, discomfort in my upper back (on/off), the feeling of food being stuck in my throat and chest - like when I eat, it feels like the food isn't going down. I feel like I have a lump in my throat that makes me keep swallowing (I have had that before, and usually its postnasal drip from sinus problems), mild hoarsness which I have noticed on/off over the past few months and it started after I had a cold, so again, not sure if this is sinus related or not? I also started being able to feel liquids when I drink them, go all the way down to my stomach - that just started within the last few days? Then I get like cool tingling feeling in my stomach. That is really weird and I have no idea what is causing this.

I am so scared that this is something serious. I feel like worrying about it is making it worse. I also have some mild anxiety issues and my doc suggested that may be causing some of these symptoms. I just don't know what to do and I am just miserable feeling like this. I just can't stop thinking about it and worrying about what it is and what it could be. And of course I look online and can't find anything with all these symptoms combined.
I also get this gurgling in my throat after swallowing, and have burped up acid a few times today.
