| | Chest Preassure, bubble like sensation... am sick of this crap!
You know, I don't know how to even start this... but whatever it is, it has me very worried. I have the same exact feeling as you guys.
It started out of nowhere, I was just sitting... working on my computer, and I felt like a bubble was in my chest, felt like burping something. The weird thing is that I felt like my left arm was going a little tingly, so I went to the doctor the next day, all he did was give me some anti-acid medicine. I didn't help! By next week, I was having it still, and I started to think it was my heart (I've had been told that I have high cholesterol). So I went to the doctor again to check my heart, they did a KFG (or something like that) test, and they said everything was fine.
The night after, I had it worse than before, and I really felt like I was going to have a heart attack. See, this is happening in my chest, and since I have been healty all my life that's the first thing it came to mind. I rushed to the Emergency room, they did the test again, x-rayed my chest, told me everything is fine. The next day I went to the Cardiologist, to check for arterial plaque and such. They did a stress test (they put you running on a treadmill and ultrasound your chest)... all came back normal. Still, the feeling is with me.
A week after, I went to another doctor, he game me PRE ACID, it seemed that it was helping a bit, but after a week of that, it came back.
It feels like a bit of preassure in the chest, it is very weird, no words to describe it I guess. It bothers my arms sometimes, makes me worried and makes my arms feel tingly. But I think that is just my imagination. Some say it could be stress, but I don't think I am stressed at all.
Sometimes at night, when everything is fine, it feels like a bubble is coming up from my chest to my throat and I freak out. It doesn't really hurt, it's just there and it worries me. If it was a heart burn, wouldn't it go away after a month?... this really is difficult, not for the pain, but because of the ignorance of knowing what it is...
I am going to the doctor again tomorrow (Friday Nov 19). I need to know what is this thing. It has me very worried, I don't like not knowing what's wrong... all I feel is that something is wrong with me... I don't know what to do!!! I am very, very scared because I have never really been sick, and all of the sudden faith plays this on me.
I got married two months ago, and after a month of being married and living the happy life, this happened... I told my family members, and even my wife. They keep telling me "it's nothing, you already saw 4 doctors!!!"... but I know that if everything was fine, I wouldn't have any feeling in my chest... I don't like this crap... I am very frustrated! I don't know what to do, specially if the doctors don't tell me soon what it is!
I don't know what it could be... can't even think of what it is... I just don't like the situation what so ever... I am too dramatic maybe - But I keep asking the allmighty to not be anything real bad, I keep wondering if I'll have kids and see them grow up... I keep thinking about my wife and my family... I am just scared I guess... and really don't know what to do... just go on?!?! how with this on my mind 24/7...?
Keep on living like it's the only time!
