It all started early this year back when i used to be a 3~4 cigarettes per day smoker, I was at my office, borrowed one cigarette from a colleague after morning tea, and after that I started to have this chest pain on left side, I used to have chest pain before that as well but for a very short while, this one was a bit more severe and with that I started to have this tingling feeling under my face skin and nose ( which I later learned is a classic p/a symptom), I asked my Boss to take me to ER, there they took ECG, everything was OK, so they cleared me immediately, so we went to this other hospital and Doc gave me a pill to clam me down. That was my first episode. After that I got scared, I stopped smoking immediately, got really scared of driving, started to have pain in left arm & neck and felt really fatigued, I took a stress test, Ecocardiogram of my Heart, blood test for cholesterol, and one more visit to ER when I started to have palps during driving. There doc in ER recom Indreal to me.
I stayed scared of Palps for weeks to come and started searching the net because the chest pains never went away. I noticed myself having more gas than usual, and normally after a chest pain episode I found myself passing gas and pain going away. But all this left me with health anxiety. During the day I keep busy, but it gets worst when I get back home in the evens. I’ve searched the net for treatment, and if you look up the natural treatment w/o withdrawl / side effects, Natural remedies’s name shall pop-up, with meds like Triple complex nerve tonic, Pure calm etc. So, right now im going to get me some homeopathic nerve tonic, and im also thinking of seeing a doctor specially for chest pains later this week, since uptill now I’ve only been to ER and to a heart specialist once to show my stress test report.
I was wondering if someone can share which med they are taking for Anxiety treatment. Which one is the best, since I could make a list of the following from the web:
Also anyone having chest pain due to GAS, how did they treat it, & what tests did the Doc ask for?
None the less HW, this place has given me real strength, since feeling of being alone is really draining. There are other ppl out there who can feel what I feel, and to whom I can talk to, since I’ve kept all this inside and haven’t shared this with anyone, since I don’t want my family feel worried about me.
God bless you all.
Tons of thanks for your support, I've been to the doctor one more time about three weeks ago, and now i need to get my blood checked for thyroid & he asked for neck x-ray. I'm also thinking about a chest x-ray as well, while im at it.
I still get CHEST PAINS, traveling ones, and have searched the net over n over for a cure related to GAS & CHEST PAIN, as for Anxiety i found this Homeopathic med called DepressNIL, it carries Staphysagria, Gelsemium etc, and i must say it really helps with anxiety specially the one which takes over at evening when yr at home and watching TV.
Looking forward to support from HW members, anyone with similar problem. Though after the last visit to Doc i've calmed down a little bit more, and dont start to get anxiety even when having chest pains like i used to.
Any comments, thoughts & inputs on the case are highly appreciated, so everyone please let me know if some one out there is experience anything similar.
God bless you all, and may we all find LASTING HEATLH & PEACE.
Hello, I am Kitt and welcome to Healing Well and the A & P forum. I have been away for a bit the past few weeks but I wanted to welcome you.
I hope you find the cause for your gass and the chest pain. At our hospital our patients that have the laporocopic removal of the gallbladder usually go home the day of surgery unless you have some other reason to be admitted to the hospital. I would have to say the majority of patients do very well.
I had my gallbladder out when they still did it through a big incision so medicine has made great strides. :)
I would encourage you to follow up with your physician if you do not feel good.
Keep posting and take care.
Good Morning to you. No I am not a Doctor but even better, I am a nurse, retired after 26 years as ICU/ER nurse. But on HW I am just like you, a member. :)
I do not think it would hurt to have the ultrasound to rule out the GB. I had very little discomfort with my gallbladder, just a nagging vague pain in abdomen and none into chest area and it was my gallbladder.
It never hurts to get a good physical and then you know more what it is not and can let worries about that system go from your thoughts. :) Glad to see you back
I am posting a link to another thread here on chest pain and anxiety for you to browse through.
Signs of anxiety include restlessness, a lot of worrying about things that probably will not
happen, and not being able to pay attention or remain focused on a task. Sometimes the stress can get extreme and lead to panic attacks.
Panic attacks are short times of intense fear and anxiety, which often include quick heartbeats, shortness of breath, chest pain, dizziness or stomach problems.
Some things that may help lower your stress are:
• Getting enough rest (at least 8 hours a day)
• Meditation (sitting quietly with your thoughts)
• Listening to gentle music
• Taking a warm bath
• Going for walks
• Regular exercise that you are used to doing
I am glad to hear you are following up with the Doctor. It is best to find out what it is not and than you can try to get rid of worrying about your gallbladder and/or heart. Please keep on posting.
