hi i have posted in anxiety..ibs and now here as my symptoms kinda relate to all 3 forums n wondered if anyone can help as im getting worried...firstly my symptoms started around 10 years ago were i wud get chest pain n a feeling of fullness in my upper stomach..i had a stress test done and a cardiogram where everything was normal....then i started having a tite lump like feeling in my throat,it never affects my breathing (unless i panic) nor my eating or drinking i kept visiting my gp who got so sick of me he sent me to have a tube down my throat and into my upper stomach.......the consultant said i had a slight acid reflux but nothing serious.......however i do sometimes still get the feeling in my throat but have learnt to live with that as i make myself relax wen it comes and it usually eases off..my gp said it sounds like globulus hysteria...a panic disorder...more recently tho i have had a pulsing sensation in my left side below my ribs,this is not at all painfull but fells like a heartbeat yet im convinced its not my heart i can feel beating its kinda like a popping sensation in my side.....i have fullness of the stomach which sometimes includes a twisting painfull sensation..my bowels range from loose to normal in the space of a day........and towards the evening all i do is burp and i mean burp! if anyone has any ideas or advice please feel free as im getting nowhere fast with my gp n it is starting to affect my relationship as im constantly thinking i have cancer or heart disease n its driving my fella mad and also me!

hello I dont think your going mad but i see why you would think it ive posted in ibs and panick and now im here and im up at 5:38am wich is normal for me not but it happends everynight about 4:30 untill 6:00 or so I cann give support and tell you that i burp and i mean burp trying to get out the pain in my stomack bowels throat back side the darn thing likes to move aroun doesnt it i take cold to warm showers with my panic dis, and in no way im i making light of the subject i hate it i do believe at times that theres somthing terribly wrong with me almost everyday and it does strain my marriage shes always up with me but tonight i left her in bed for the first time she understands but shes also expecting so i need to let her sleep it seems doctors are out working for the drug cmpanies and not us they put a bandaid on our problem instead of findind what realy helps when i first was diagnoised with what the doctor called heartburn,acid reflux, wich turned out to be ibs,and panic disorder( ya isnt it a pain ) the doctor said theres a cure but not available in the us i believe its in Mexico and Europe so countries who are behind us are actually ahead. sorry for the hard to read garble i need to learn to type propper I hope i helped Ill probally be here again tommorrow night after my next one maby ill sleep through the for a change its been 3 weeks since one of those good night sleeps but i still have problems during the day with burbs and gas pains i hope you feel better i realy do im going to try aloe vera plant mixed in mango blended up when i find some i heard over at i think it was ibs or aniety that it helped one girl so hey i might give it a try once but check into before hand there so many thing to try and a lot of research to get to just to find an answer talk to you later ...jason ps i hope i helped

hi jason thanxs for responding to my post.........yes its such a pain im not sure if my sypmtoms r a pain or me worrying i have something terminal that is the pain or both! im lucky at the moment i guess as none of my symptoms ever wake me or stop me sleeping at night im so sorry u cant seem to get a good nights sleep.......i havent been diagnosed with anything and i think my gp is confused as everytime i see him i seem to have other symptoms as well so i guess its hard for him to make a diagnosis tho i wish he wud as the more i feel im getting brushed off the more i get panicked which in turn seems to make my symptoms worse! i just wish i knew wot it was n then maybe i cud try to deal with it x

theres no clear answere they never can tell you what it is they just tell you what its not and i started of that way but the more things i tried the more side effects i and then your confused on ehether its the symptoms or effect dont feel panic becuse of being brushed of (easier said then done) i burbed once for it seems for ever but i smoked at that time i quit then that stoped 85% of the burps but not all of it they told me after my colonoscopy,endoscopy,berium enema and numourus ekg's and lots of midnight or day rides to the ER and all they told me was acid reflux. They told me that they believed i had ibs and becuse of lots of diffrent opinions panic disorder wich by then I realproblem y believed that i had some kind hidden problem well i got to thanxs for your repl jsn
