Hi everyone ... wow, this is crazy!!!

Im not even sure if I have fibro, acid reflux, panic attacks or what the heck is goin on ...

Here's a list of "some" of the stuff goin on, u tell me what u think ...

Hot flashes
tightness around my chest, ribs upper stomach, sometimes in sides and back
constant
at times, feels like I can breath right, and yes that causes anxiety
fingers fall asleep, esp at nite, wakes me up
throat scratchy at times
right at sturnum, tight like muscle is in a ball
tired all the time
has caused me to lose my job

I have been to dr ... thyroid levels good, lung xray showed no sign of lung or cardic disease, blood work good ... all of which I am very thankful for ...

I dont have insurance, which makes it next to impossible to go to dr, have other test, etc ...

I take zantac twice a day ... along with a beta blocker and my thyroid med (had it out in 2001)

I have read and read all over this board ... still have no clue ... also have a pinched nerve ...

I am 49 which I know I am periomenopausal, and yes have all those symptoms to deal with too ...

Any comments, advice etc will be appreciated ... have a blessed day!

Re: Newbie

sounds like gerd, try to take otc prilosec or prevacid, these are stronger than zantac and see how you feel, you can take them twice per day at first to see it it helps and then try to decrease to one a day and then back to zantac
hope you feel better
