Hello fellow sufferers from a newbie, I'm hoping you can give me a few ideas of what I might have!!!!
I should point out that I have never had heartburn/indigestion in my 50 years, I'm female, don't have any stress, work part-time, I don't drink soda, coffee, smoke, alcahol consumption is low, don't take medicines or drugs, don't exercise and am sadly a couple of stone overweight, eat relatively healthily (don't eat sweets/donuts/burgers etc).
I first went to the hospital as the pain was so great (10/10) I thought it was a heart attack, they gave me an ECG and eventually sent me home as all was OK. three weeks later I went to hospital for a treadmill test, just before the test they measured my blood pressures and did another ECG and said all was normal and had to stop after 8 minutes as I nearly passed out and couldn't catch my breath. They think I may have GERD/reflux problems and I've been on Zantac for 2 weeks but this hasn't helped. I was given nitroglycerine once (under the tongue) and this cured me instantly till it wore off.
I have the pain all the time, mostly it's a 3/10 but with a bit of exercise (mowing the lawn) it'll become 8/10 for about 5 hours, I'm tired all the time..............what could I have???
