This all started in June. I was on vacation when I got this horrible heavyness/tightness in my chest. Well I freaked out. I have anxeity also, so this heavyness really makes me freak out all the time. I also get Jaw pain.
On June 14th I went to the ER with this heavyness/tightness and feeling like I could not breath, I was hooked up to a Heart Monitor, had an EKG, Cardiac Blood Work x2, chest x-ray and a Heart Stress Test (running on the treadmill), all came back Negative, my heart is fine. Blood Pressure is running normal I do have High Blood Pressure but it was under great control.
I have lost about 30lbs in the last year or so and I an continuing to do so.
I have had the Upper GI done. It showed that I have a Hiatel Hernia and Acid Reflux that goes to my Clavical.
I am on Prilosec 20mg. My doc is making an appointment for me to see a Gastro, but this could take 4 months to get.
My question is does anyone else get these symptoms? The chest heavyness/tightness, shortness of breath feeling like you cannot get a breath and jaw pain with there GERD?
There are no other heart test for me to do, they have pretty much been done and all negative.
I hope someone can help ease my mind here.
