What does this sound like to you? PLEASE READ.
« on: June 30, 2014, 06:08:21 PM »
For the past couple months I have had severe indegestion. Not like acid in my throat, but really dry painful burps. Also, a lot trapped gas behind my chest/breast bone. The pain was so bad i thought I was having heart problems. It's been non stop for two months from the time I wake up until the time I go to bed, an extreme excess in gas. I've had a little nausea, no vomiting, regular bowel movements, my weight isn't fluctuating. I can't help but jump to the worst. Esophageal cancer, pancreatic cancer, ect... I have an appointment with a GI Specialist on July 22nd, though I want to try to get in sooner. When I seen my GP she said I had some swelling underneath my breast bone, (I guess my esophagus) but she wasn't worried and started me on Omeprazole. I've had full blood work in the last couple months and all looked well. Any insight on what I could be dealing with?

it sounds like GERD to me. When I have it bad I burp all day long and have some of the stuff you are describing. Good luck with your appointment. It's reassuring that your bloodwork was all good! keep us posted!  :action-smiley-065:
