I just found you guys on the internet and I really need some advice. I was told years ago that I had Acid Reflux. I have been on Nexium everyday for this. I am also asthmatic.
about a week ago I started haveing way more heartburn then normal and have been having chest pain. The pain moves around between my breast bones and sometimes it is on the left side also, sometimes all over and sometimes more on the right. For the most part my asthma is fine but I notice I get a littel anxious and then I have a hard taime taking in a breath.
I went to the GI on Thursday and we doubled my Nexium along with tums after meals. I am no better and sometimes worse. The paion is pretty constant. I have an Endoscopy scheduled for Friday of this week but I can't help wondering if this is related to my heart or lungs or something else.
I had an EKG in September and last April a chest x-ray. Both came out normal. I do suffer from some anxiety but even when I take meds for it, the pain in my chest does not go away. I just wanted to see if anyone experienced the same feelings I have had. I sit here and there is pain in my chest. I certainly do not want to cry wolf but how can my dr's be so certain this is not heart related withour further testing.
Any advice or stories would be greatly appreciated.
