I don't know if I got any answers or not. The GI did find gastritis and espogositis and multiple polyps which she biopsied. She put me on a PPI and said that I do have reflux or GERDS but not bad enough to explain my chest pain symptoms and is sending a report to my cardiologist. ???
I was fine on Thursday but woke up at 4am with pain in the lower part of my chest right in the center. It was (and IS) right where the esphogus goes into the stomach-where the sphinxter muscle is or at least that is my estimation of it. The pain would start there and go around the side toward the back if I laid on my right side or on my back. So I laid on my left side. I thought it would stop when I got up but it did not. So I called the GI to see if it was normal to be sore and in pain there. She sent me right to the ER for chest x-rays and told me to go see my cardiologist after that. ???? It felt like it was coming up from my stomach and not my heart but she insisted I GO! So I WENT!
They did an EKG,took blood, did the x-ray and ultrasound of my pancreas, gallbladder and part of the liver. Everything OK. ER doctor said GERDS. ????? I called my cardiologist afterwards (THE ER docotr kept trying to get hold of him but couldn't???) and said I did not think it was my heart and did not think I needed to come see him. He did not htink I needed to come see him either. He has done all the tests and they check out OK except for the various palpitations and coronary artery spasms.
Anyway I still have the pain today and now my throat is sore from where I yelled at my daughter's soccer game this morning. I'm a mess and I wonder if things will ever get better for me as far as the pain goes!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!
I'm sad because it was my husband's family reunion at a really nice park about an hour away and we were all going But after the game that pain was so bad I decided to stay home because I wouldn't be any fun hurting and maybe not able to eat and everyone asking what's wrong. So I sent them on and stayed home. They have a train ride around the park that the family goes on every year and a wonderful creek we always cookout by and there is an Easter Egg Hunt for all the kids at the end and maybe I should just stop thinking about it!!! My daughter and I colored eggs yesterday after she got home from school and filled little plastic eggs with candy. That is still fun!
