Hello Everyone, my name is Patti, and I just found this site today doing some research. Let me say Thank God I did. I can't even begin to tell you how much better I feel knowing that I am not the only one. I have had this for about 8 years now, and when it all first began years ago, I thought I was having a heart attack. Needless to say, it would come and go. It has been doing better, except recently has gotten ridiculously bad. I have had every stinking test known to man I believe. Here lately I have been getting alot of sinus issues, headaches, severe stomach pains, and like heat/burning sensations in my ear. Reading everyones posts has made me feel way better. I swear people think I'm going crazy, like there is nothing wrong with me. I know how I feel though, and it really sucks. I am on Omeprizole, and xanax because of this stupid thing. I now have panick attacks, heart palpatations, sweats, nasuea, etc..all the above. I look forward to seeing everyone else's issues to help each other out. Wishing everyone the best.

Hi Paddi, you will get great advice and support here. Is your medicine controlling your symptoms?

I've been on omeprozole for over a year now, I believe. I think i'm getting immuned to it, or this stupid Acid Reflux is making things worse. Like I said though, it has come and gone throughout my 8 years. Within this past year though things have been rough. I had an endo/colonoscopy...Hida Scan...ultarasound for my heart...ct scan..tons of bloodwork...every time, it's all anxiety..I am looking through all these forums, and I truly believe thanks to you all, I might have found my answer. For a few months things have gone good, prior to that, I had diahrrea everyday for 3 months. Of course I have acid reflux, but every other test they have done is normal. I do have a small hernia as well. In 2005 I believe I caused all this on myself because of stress. I had shoulder surgery, after going 9 months in pain, and the doctors not finding anything. I worked 10 years in the factory, and I am now 40 years old. I am also the youngest of 7 kids, so my life hasn't been easy. Back to the subject though, today was really rough. I have been in pain all day, and that's what led me to research. I have had a few minor symptoms this week that should have warned me it was coming on. Took some tums, drank some milk, water, and trying to relax. It's so hard to relax though when you are in pain. I have been arguing with my regular doctor, and my GI doctor though for some time. I have nerve damage, but was never sure what kind. Both of them always say, no it's not the nerves its just stress..I have some days where I get pins/needles, and hair stands on end. I just saw on many posts about the vagus nerve..omg I have everything they say. My GI doctor says I have IBS also, but I am almost positive now that it has all triggered down. Sorry I was rambling, but nobody else knows what I'm going through and they all say, well if the doctors think your fine, you know..I have an 11 year old daughter, and I hate days like this where it hurts to even move. Thanks for your reply.
