Chest pain

Posted by henribasi @henribaai, Oct 7, 2019

About two months ago I felt lightheaded initially, then the next day I had indigestion, chest pain, constipation, difficulty breathing in closed spaces,and a feeling of something stuck in my throat. I went for an ultrasound and they said I have an inflammation in the stomach lining caused by gastritis. I have been on PPI drugs and anti biotics. I felt better but still having chest pain and the feeling of something stuck in my throat. The pain comes when I sit for long and relax my chest and every morning when I wake up. Its gets better when I do some stretches. It comes back each time I lay down and want to get up. Or each time I sit for long and want to get up. I have done ECG test and everything seems OK. Why am I having the pains.. I also have arms and leg nerve pains and neck too

Oh wow that must be tough. I hope you feel better. I am not a doctor or medical professional. I remember experiencing some of the symptoms that you mentioned and I was diagnosed with gall stones. Has your doctor given you any possibilities of other test to run

My doctor says I'm OK. But I know there's something wrong. The pain isn't a crushing chest pain, but I feel it when I'm getting up after resting or when I exert pressure on my chest

@henribasi Welcome to connect we are a caring group and try to help . May I ask what kind of Dr, have you seen ? Is it just your PCP ? Have you seen any specialist like a lung Dr,cardiologist, rheumatologist . With your nerve pain and muscles this may be a good Dr to see but it could be so many things . Let us know how your doing . I'm sorry for your pain and discomfort it is hard to not know what the cause is .

I saw s gastrorologist. He said a pinched nerve might be the problem. Since I've been on gastritis medications. I feel better immediately I do some chest stretches I. But it comes up when I sit or lay down and try getting up.

@henribasi I wasn't sure you where replying to me if you could place an @ sign before the person you are replying to this will be helpful but since I went to your post I wanted to let you know now that you said it is a pinched nerver per your gastroenterologist I had this many moons ago and I went to my chiropractor told him the problem as it was the same tightness in chest when laying down he checked me out and released the nerve that was pinched by the muscles in the back. Hope this information will help you

@olivia I was told to also do an xray but I don't know how xray could show a pinched nerve.
