Hi All, i'm hoping that i can find some like minded
people that can possible help me out of this massive hole that i am in at the
This is my first post and just wanted to see if the symptoms that i
am currently suffering is indeed GERD?.
Way back in April i
suffered whilst out at the cinema what i could only describe as a heart attack,
pains in my left arm, tightness in my chest and headache, i went straight to
A&E where they did all the relevant tests and stayed in overnight -
everything was clear and i was all ok, i was then subect to various tests
including echo, treadmill, 24hr urine, 24hr monitor and various ekg's again all
clear, also seen a gastro doc and had an endosocpy and again all is good! but
since April i felt like utter crap and my life has changed completley, no social
life, depression and I have one of these attacks about once a month where i have
chest pains and heart palputations and weird feelings, i'm then out of it for
anything upto a week!. inbetween attacks i have the below symptoms.
tightness - some times heavy sometimes sharp
Terrible fatiuge - no energy
Left arm pain
Whole left side
feels week - bad rib pain and pain under left armpit
rightsided fuzzy headache
yellow big toenails and thumb nails
that warm water is being poured over me (NOW MAINLY IN UPPER LEFT THIGH)
/ something always stuck feeling
pins and needles - now mostly right arm
leg pain in lower
No one can tell me whats a matter with me and doctor recently told
me that i might have to put up with it for two years until my brain turns off
from the symptoms!, PPI's have not really worked and now that my endoscopy is all clear i'm thinking is it Acid or is it a Cardio problem although i have been told all is ok! I have now been given Pregablin which I have been taking for a
few weeks but nothing seems to be happening!.
Does this sound
like GERD and similar to what some of you guys have experienced in the past?.
I'm sorry that this post is so long but I
really am at the lowest point in my life right now, my wife is expecting our
first baby and i should be hyper excited but instead i am just permantley feel
tired, exhusted ans depressed. :(
Thanks for taking the time to read.
