Mine is a long story. I had reflux for years, but about a year ago, I had surgery to correct this. It is 100 percent gone. I had severe reflux for at least ten years. This is not reflux. For several months now, I have been having chest pressure, fatigue, throat pain and inability to successfully take a deep breath or yawn. On the rare occasion that i can successfully take deep breaths, it causes pain in right side of my throat. My heart rate occasionally jumps up to 130 to140 bpm from time to time. I went to the e.r. a couple weeks ago. They did a CT of the chest and chest xray. Said everything is okay, but my symptoms have gotten so much worse. It takes very little activity to completely wipe me out. I don't know what to do. about a year ago, I underwent several heart tests because of my palpitations. They say they are harmless and not to worry about them. I am very afraid of this. I am a single father with custody of two young children. I cannot be sick.

The throat pain is definitely the worst of my pain. It Runs up the right side of my throat and hurts non-stop. I wake with it, I go to sleep with it. Sometimes it wakes Will throughout the night. The pain is usually accompanied by a hot feeling in my throat. On occasion the throat pain will travel up the back of my head. Does anyone have any thing like this. I cannot help but feel that it is cardiac related, but all doctors have said no.

Hi Darryl,

I notice no one has answered you, I'm sure someone with more information about your problem will get back to you. Do you think that all the pain you are going through is making you anxious. I have left branch bundle block of my heart, but never had the heart jump rates you experienced. Do you know what your blood pressure is? I would tell you to take deep breaths to relax yourself, that is what I do, but it seems you can't do that. Try taking a tablespoon of honey for your throat, it might help soothe it.
