Okay, this is very strange. I left for vacation last week on Wednesday night and had absolutely NO symptoms while on vacation. I don't really get heartburn, but more of a discomfort in my chest with some tightness while breathing. Before I left, I had a lung xray which was normal. On May 24th, I had an endoscopy - completely normal which is why my GI doc sent me to pulmonary doctor.
Yesterday, I went to get a complete pulmonary workup and they did notice a 28% increase in part of my lung breathing after giving me some meds. Albutorol? SP.
Anyhow, I'm now wondering if in-fact I am having allergies to my surroundings here at home or in my area and that I didn't have while on vacation in another part of the state closer to the ocean? I was thinking I had reflux, but no I'm starting to wonder if it isn't because I'm telling you, I was living it up while on vacation and drinking wine and eating whatever I wanted. Now that I'm back home, I'm starting to notice some of the discomfort (which to me feels like acid reflux if that makes any sense) and chest tightness.
I see the pulmonary doctor on Monday to go over all my test ressults.
Anyway, had a great vacation.
Does anyone think that I could just be suffering from stress. Could stress be the culprit?
