Hello everyone - For the last few days I've had this pressure behind my sternum. It's there off and on throughout the day. It's not painful but it feels more like trapped gas behind the sternum/breastbone. When I press on the area, the pressure is relieved and my stomach makes gurgling sounds. I have also been burping a lot when I have this pressure but I will not relieve the pressure.
I have been diagnosed with silent reflux (LRP) by my ENT, but don't have the normal symptoms of GERD. I only feel acid about once a year, but I do sometimes burp up food from time to time (gross I know) if I do a lot of bending right after eating. I also have IBS.
I am just worried that this is a sign of stomach cancer, esophageal cancer, pancreatic cancer, etc.! I've had a normal abdominal ct scan within the last year and just had normal blood work. I have an appt to see my GI doc on the 28th and plan on ask about getting an endoscopy done.
Any words of advice, suggestions, thoughts would be appreciated.
