I have been on here before I am currently on the Gerd section. I was dx with gerd on the 30th October 2007. The weirdest thing about having this problem is I never suffered heart burn just a burning sensation at the top of the shoulder blades & a very sore throat. I have had lots of blood test done all normal I had an ultrasound done on the liver & gallbladder that was normal. I went to ER on the 28th of November with pains in the chest & aching pain on the left arm they gave me a ct scan & ecg & said everything looked ok my lungs & my heart. Now for the past 4 days I have this problem again I am at my wits end. I was wondering if this could be anxiety related. I have to admit everytime I have something i feel like its the end of the world. A lot has happened to me in the last 3 years. I got married to an American & moved here from the UK leaving my daughter who did not want to come with my mum, she is 19 so she wanted to stay. I also have had 2 children 1 is 18 months & the other is 7 months. All my illnesses seem to come when i was 5 months pregnant with the 2nd child & I have not been right since. I did have my children at an older age I was 38 with the 1st & 39 with the 2nd so this could have put a tole on my body.
Me my husband & children are flying to the UK on Saturday to visit so was hoping my pains would subside.
I would really like to hear your suggestions if you think this could be possible health anxiety & would you get such chest & arm pains with anxiety. Also I thought I would mention I have lost 50lb in weight & that was while being pregnant as well & I am always tired. I just feel everytime I go to the doctors & ER they seem to put everything to gerd.
Thankyou in advance for your replys
