Hi guys. Great site here. I have a problem that occurs mainly after I eat but can come on at any time. I get this pain in my chest and constant feeling that I have to clear my throat. Figured it was always post nasal drip, but is always worst after I eat and lately the pains are crippling. I can feel it creeping up my throat to where it feels like I have a big lump in my throat. I also get the fullness and pain in my ears as if they are plugged or filled with fluid. I can handle these symptoms, they usually get better after I take a couple of Tums, but then I start to get these pains in my neck and down to my chest and shoulders and everything gets REALLY stiff. My breastbone really hurts and I feel overcome as if I am going to die. Can anybody offer any help??

Hi bigsexyca, It sounds to me like you either have GERDS or possibly thyroid problems. I'm not a Doc. so don't take my word for it. I would go to my physician and let them know your symptoms if you have'nt already done so. I wish you the best of luck, and welcome to the HW forum.

It sounds like you have classic GERD/ Reflux problems. Have you had your endoscope yet? I have suffered terribly for many years with this problem. I have a long story to tell and can answer most questions related to this chronic pain. email me if you need to talk. Peace with you.

i was diagnoised with gerd a couple of months ago, and was just wondering if it can cause your ibs to ache?
i get rib ache on and off quiet alot especially if i suffer with trapped wind. i also suffer with panic attacks and anxiety and wonder if the two can be connected in anyway.
many thanks in advance for any help and advice u can give.
