Hello, I am wondering if any one else has chest pains all day everyday?! My family doctor has diagnosed me with GERD, acid reflux. I have been going through this pain and misery for 6 weeks now, had blood work done, everything looks good. Well there was bacteria found in my blood which my doctor didn't seem to worried about because he didn't talk about it to me and what it means. He has listened to my heart and doesn't seemtobe worried about it. My blood platlets were a little high, but again, my doctor wasn't worried. I have been in to see him 6 times in 6 weeks and I have got no where! I am on 40mg of Nexium 2 times a day, which doesn't seem to be doing anything but getting rid of my heart burn which is good, but I have pains in my chest all day everyday for the past 6 weeks. I had an H pylori test done on Monday and I am still waiting for my test results, how long does it take? Someone told me it takes 10days! Is that true? Does H pylori cause chest pains all the time?
I have an ultrasound on December 6/10 and I have an appointment wirh a GI doctor December 22/10. It just seems so far away! I am getting really tired of having chest pains every day and I can do nothing to get rid of it. I have been drinnking Gaviscon like a milkshake, it worked for the last 2 weeks, but I think I am now immune to it.
I have been trying to take ACV and I can't stand the smell let alone the taste. Any input as to how would be great. I have read that it does work and I will try anything right about now.
Please any input and thoughts would be great!
