Hello, all! This my 1st time posting on a forum; so here go's nothing.... My doctor's are quacks I think.... It all started in 2009; 3 days after my 26th birthday.. trying to watch True Blood! I was unable to breathe (couldn't sleep on side and to sleep propped up) I went to the ER 3 x's in a 2 day span.... On the last visit I was told my a ER doctor that told me I was having an anxiety attack and prescribed my anti anxiety meds.. I threw away the prescription.... Purposely :) I'm not high strung! Went to see PCP... Guess what? Dx'd w/ Pleurisy. Given Flexeril, naproxen and z pack.... Still had severe chest pains to where I couldn't lift anything... or exercise or do the mambo w/ the hubby.... Also had horrible palpitations.... Saw heart specialist dx's with mitral valve prolapse (I was a state track runner and ran for many years, imagine the surprise). Told had heart of 13 y-o boy.... Sure I'll buy it!! Had ekg's, holster monitor, echos...etc! Saw new doc told Acid reflux...(hx of regurgitation).... Took prevacid.... worked for a week! Now back to pt A... chest pains, unable to breathe, lightheaded when sitting.... chest pains when exercising.. Overheating.... Dizziness.... nauseous....vomiting water or acid depends???.....not pregnant!??! Pains on left side of chest under breast bone.. Excessive belching and flatulent...sleepiness....please help?!?! I'm too young to have this many issues I'm not even 28 yet :(

Could be gerd since the anti-acids helped. Go on prevacid or zergrid longer and see if it helps. Also ask your doctor for a gall bladder scan. Just to be sure.
