Chronic Stomach, chest and back pain

Posted by @happyat76, Tue, Oct 23 3:23pm

Hi,
I have written before about this pain in that the Dr's. thought it was because of my nuroendocrine tumour in my pancreas. I have been to a cancer Dr. about this tumour and she assured me that since it has not changed in 11 years, it will most likely never turn into cancer. This was ruled out for me.
I have had a cat scan, an ultra sound and a endoscopy of my stomach in the last few months. The Dr. found some inflammation in my esophagus and stomach, but really nothing else. I have been on so many meds for this problem of mine, e.g. Tecta, Prilosec, Lyrica, Oxy and some other musculal-sceletal med and none of them has helped me. I am now on CBD and so far, after two weeks, it isn't helping me at all either. This pain has been going on and getting worse for perhaps three years now and no Dr. has really told me what is wrong with me. I can hardly breathe sometimes, the pain is so severe. It has nothing to do with food as far as I can tell and nothing helps the pain. No Dr. has really ever examined my stomach or back. I just don't know where else to ask for help or what I should do for myself. Is there anyone who has had this problem and had it solved? I am at my wit's end right now with this pain. It is real!!!
Oh yea, I also wanted to mention that I just read an article about drinking ice cold water and what it can do to our bodies. I have been drinking ice cold water for most of my life and I am now 77. Do you think that this may have anything to do with my pain? Maybe damage has been done over the years. I have not had a chest x-ray for years either and have requested on, but to no avail.

@happyat76 – I have had similar pain, but not all the time like you have. I once got severe chest pain going to back and thought I had an MI. I had esophagitis. Episodes since then but milder.
You mentioned that you also had inflammation in esophagus and stomach. I assume your cardiovascular system has been evaluated.

Hi there, thank you so much for your reply. I have been in such agony since I posted this health problem of mine and have since then, have had a chemically induced stress test on my heart. The results of this is that the Cardiologist told me my heart is fine and is not causing this chest pain I am in that is just killing me. I don't know who to turn to or go to see. My own GP is totally useless. Right now, my abdomen from left to right (from the waist up) my whole chest area and my whole back, especially my spine are absolutely just hurting so much, I can hardly breathe now. Do you think this pain is from my esophagus and stomach being inflamed? I just cannot go on with this horrible pain all the time everyday and night. I don't know what to do now.

Since you have had inflammation of esophagus and stomach, I would start with GI to rule out any cause for pain.
Neurologist maybe too.
