Hey there, am fairly new to this site i just wonder if anyone else goes through what i am currently going through, Ive been taking lansoprazole 15mg for sometime now, over the past few weeks i have been suffering weird chest feelings followed by aching arms and fatigue and difficulty breathing these symptoms can last for days it worries me cos the strange feelings feel like there in the heart area, however ive had this checked and the doctors seem to think its anxiety. I dont get it though one minute am fine the next these symptoms appear. although i do get a lot of acid ive always coped well with it but these weird chest feelings and hard to breath and fatigue problems are making it really hard to get on with daily life......please if someones suffered this please let me know?

Go and see your doctor, your meds may have stopped working or maybe its something other than heartburn. Just try not to worry too much, cause anxiety can cause lots of wared symptoms.

Are you seeing a GI doctor or your normal practitioner?

Hello Dormo, and welcome to healingwell. I am happy you have found us, as this is an amazing place for information and support. I am sorry you are suffering though. Please feel free to look back on old posts, as they do hold so much information.

I will say from my own experience that depression and anxiety can cause these symptoms, that is for sure. And, the more you worry, the worse they will get.

A couple questions though...

How long have you had these symptoms?

Does anything make them better, or worse?

Have you seen a GI?

What has your family doctor said?

Do you have any mental problems, such as depression, or anxiety, or anything like that?

Please do stick with us, and let us know how you are doing, and don't hesitate to ask questions...that is what we are here for!

Wishing you all the best.
