AAA.....I don't know if that is the problem. I have not been diagnosed. But I did not know where else to post this. If it is in the wrong place and can be moved...go for it.

I have a lump/bulge about 2 inches below my sternum. When I was a younger/child doctors just told me it was a very strong stomach muscle. I have alway been thin and when laying on my back you can see my heart beat in my stomach. Now-a-days it is a bulge. I have high BP (not regulated by any meds I've taken), GERD, IBS, FIBRO and a mess of other stuff.

Recently my BP spiked. ER visit 255/150. Now when there is pressure on my stomach in the spot mentioned above, I get dizzy feeling, and I get a cool sensation and tingles under chin and up sides of cheeks. Hold the pressure there too long (maybe about 60 seconds) and I get a serious headache.

Any Ideas? I put AAA in the subject line because this is the only thing that I can find when googling.

something like gord? gastro osophogeal reflux disease. sounding like an acid type thing. me no doc. bp can be spiked by many things. i feel a chat with ya doc is warranted. maybe an ultrasound will give some insight? hope this helps. no idea on the AAA. your doc is the best bet for diagnostic assessment and referral.

Thanks Happy Turtle - my doc is useless. And just as an example: They believe that genetic testing is "bad science". *Shrugs. I would only go there if had a broken bone or something like that. My BP spiked about 3 months ago and I can't take meds because of some weird enzymes in my liver...they don't metabolize like they should and I get every side effect in the book from every med I've ever taken in my life. But thank you for your comments. I actually do have an ultrasound coming up, maybe they will figure it out. Thanks again.
