Hi, I have been dealing with alot of different symptoms and i just dont know if it is Gerd. The drs are telling me it is along with some anxiety and i was tested positive for H Pylori. I have so many different symptoms so just wanting to see if anyone else has the same as i do. Where to begin...I have the burning sometimes in the chest and throat but i also have chest pains that are sharp and just come and go,it always seems worse at night.I also have dizzy spells with lightheadedness sometimes Also sometimes i just feel zoned out like i just dont feel myself,its very strange. I have also been having headaches for the last 2 weeks. I also get pains in my back that comes and goes as well. When i am driving sometimes i get this tightness in my chest to.Bloating sometimes as well. Also my whole upper body just feels weak and kinda tingly sometimes. These symptoms that i am having are not always happening together. I might have one symptoms out of the blue without even having any burning or pains in the chest.I have had 3 ekg's done along with blood work and each time they say everything is fine when it comes to my heart. Just keep thinking it is my heart. I am a 28 yr old female. I do smoke but other than that i am am very active and in good health and not over weight at all. Also i was treated for the H.Pylori with antibotics.I take nexium 40mg everyday and have been taking it for about 2 months now. I would love to hear back from anyone that has any thought on any of this. thanks so much.

That is exactly how i feel, i also get this tightness around my upper abdomen,right below the breast. It feels like my bra is to tight around me sometimes.the only time i feel this is when i am sitting though.It does it alot while i am driving even when i dont feel that i have heartburn.
