Re: Gerd and chest congestion

Maybe someone can help that has experienced similiar problems...I am a worrier which does not help I know. I have a history of IBS, and gastro reflux.
Lately my IBS has flarred up...those with it know exactly what I mean. I have also had some heartburn, and feel like a have quite a bit of gas..I belch a few times after I eat, etc. I have been taking Nexium for two weeks.. a little bettter...I also use Phazyme which is an anti gas pill. I seem to get aches in my right side chest just below the braest, and also in my shoulder blade, and shoulder a little....it moves around...less in the morning...a little worse as the day goes on. I have had a heart work up, and chest film...both we're fine. I worry that it's someting bad...been going on for two months...no worse...so I guesss that's good?? Can it simply be symptoms of IBS and gastro reflux and/or gas causing these aches???

I would appreciate hearing from anyone that can give me some good feedback....thanks...and God Bless.

I am also a major worrier and whenever I have the chest tightness or achiness I get extremely worried which, as you know, only makes it worse. I don't know sometimes if I'm causing more problems with my anxiety response. I think we only have to worry if its accompanied by shortness of breath. I also had my heart checked recently and that was all fine.

I just started on Aciphex 3 days ago so I also wasn't sure if some of this was caused by that. I don't remember it being this bad before I started the pills.
