Sorry if this is all over the place!
This has been going on for at least 4-5 years. Right Side Chest above breast, Im taking prevacid right now since Sept 14th.(is that ok?)
I was wondering if you might be able to help me or if you maybe know what is wrong.
Throughout the years off and on I get this chest pain it disappears for months if not longer. I get various different kinds all on the same EXACT spot on the RIGHT side of my chest. The scariest one for me is the squeezing type pain I get. If it didnt hurt I wouldnt be so scared. (I have also got a burning type pain /stabbing pain .)
Now thing is these pains come out of NOWHERE. I am perfectly fine at home sitting down and get them. Like starts of squeezing like cramp and gets stronger and painful.
The first time I can remember I got the squeezing pains was at least 4-5 years ago. I have got 3 EKGS and they have came back normal. But now I have NO INSURANCE at the moment. I really think there has to be different kinds of test done to see if is my heart or something like GERD. etc. or if there's some damage done from my acid reflux? Im pretty sure its reflux. My throat alot of the time is "warm" feeling sometimes burns.
When I first went to my dr in 2012 she told me to take generic prevacid everyday. Im not sure if thats safe but I was taking it for awhile(at least a year) and then I stopped. So now Im taking it again and I read its not good to take that long. Has anyone else took medicine for long periods of time?
I dont think I had any major chest pain till recently.
I got the squeezing pains on Sept 14 then the next day was just a burning type stabbing no squeezing.
In between all of these days I have HAD FLUTTERING
that get for few days comes and goes as well. I get it mostly when I bend down the fluttering. Sometimes laying down. ugh.
I had no chest pain since sept 16th and then it came back oct 5th and 6th and has gone away again the squeeing pain. it SCARES me so bad!!
I started taking the prevacid again when I got the chest pains sept 14th.
I was just wondering if maybe you had an idea of what this could be?
If theres any questions I can answer to help you let me know. thank you!!! PS. i do have bad (social anxiety) but Im not sure if maybe the physical strain puts on my body has caused the acid reflux /heartburn problems.
