I had my brother put a lock box by my front door. I have keys to house and garage in it. I went to the police station and gave them the entry code to the lockbox. Now when 911 is called the code comes up with name, address, etc. I also have my advance directive on the spare end table by the bed. I did this after I couldn't remember where to look when the ENTs came and asked for it when my husband died.

Perhaps you could ask about esaphagol spasms. Several times I thought I was having a heat attack bit tests showed I did not. My neighbor had similar and they told her in emergency it was a spasm.

A section of your bowel may be pressing on a nerve. I have bloating and pain in that area, too. My doctor thinks perhaps my problem with the gut might be causing liver inflamation which can also put pressure on a nerve in that area. Another doctor years ago thought my IBS irritations were putting pressure on a nerve causing nerve irritation as far up as burning in my neck when when the IBS kicks in.

I sometimes get pain in my right breast and arm when having digestive problems. My doctor thought it might be that my digestive problems were inflaming my liver which was putting pressure on a nerve that travels that route. The only time it happens is when I have lots of bloating.
