Over the past few months i have been suffering with bad chest pains that come and go, burning in the chest, upper back pain, sometimes radiating to the shoulders and arms and sometimes i feel like i have a lump in my throat with breathing problems from time to time. I have been to the doctors and hospital numerous times to get this checked out. I have had blood tests and chest x-rays and they have both come back normal. My doctor put it down to Acid reflux and prescribed me omeprazol.

I have read alot of articals online but they scare the hell out of me.

The doctor is now sending me for a ultrasound on my gall bladder to see if i have gallstones ( i dont think it is that). If anyone is having the same symptoms can you please help me out or if you have any answers on what it could be would be a great help.

Thank you. :-)

I share some of those symptoms. Sounds like GERD. Have you had an endoscopy?
Diagnosed GERD, no other medical conditions (this one is enough)

No i havent had it yet, i have asked my doctor so many times but for some reason he does not want to do it until after i have the ultrasound.

The endoscopy could confirm reflux hopefully you can get a referral for one after the ultrasound

This is a product I use which has been very helpful, ask you doctor about it.

My ppi gave me carpal tunnel syndrome after 6 months of usage - I would ask if the pins and needles could be a side effect.
