Hi there, I have UC, but think I might also have Reflux. I had bad reflux when I was pregnant 25 years ago, but that went away after I had the baby. Over the last 5 years I've had bouts of burning stomach with nausea, but it only lasts a few days and then I'm ok for months.
In early 2006 I had strange chest pains with burning that seemed to come from my stomach right up into my throat. Also had a feeling of having a lump in my throat, as well as tightness. The Dr. gave me some Nexium, which I didn't take, and the feeling went away on it's own. Every few months I get the burning/nausea, but again, it only lasts a few days then goes away.
For about a month now, I've had a constant pain in my chest along with a burning feeling. The burn goes right up into my throat and almost feels scratchy like I've swallowed a hair. I want to clear my thoat, to relieve the feeling, but there is no mucous to clear. I also almost feel like you do when you have bronchitis, that burn in your upper lung area. This is the part that is scaring me because I'm an ex-smoker. I haven't smoked in 11 years. I don't have any cough or phlegm/mucous, so I'm thinking it's probably reflux. Is that one of the sensations on reflux, feeling like it could be your lungs? I'm going to see the Dr. about this, but would like to know what your opinions are regarding the strange, worrying chest sensations are. Thanks!
