Stomach Problems

I get massive pain in my stomach. (Right below my breasts) If I make myself throw up it goes away within 15 minutes to half hour. If I do not throw up the pain can last all night long. I have a hard time breathing. and sweat alot. My heart feels like its pumping out of my chest but my blood pressure and heart rate is normal.

This has happened to me several times usually a month or more in between
I find it seems to happen when I over eat doesn't matter what it is that I am eating.

I am overweight but have been this way all my life. I do not have any eating disorders. Normally I am a happy stable person

Anyone have any idea what this may be caused from or is it just over eating ?

Thank you
TT

Re: Stomach Problems

Sounds like reflux perhaps? You should see a GI doc it may help.

Re: Stomach Problems

Doesn't reflux give you that burning feeling. I have had that before this is very different. It always starts several hours after I have eaten and always at night.

thanks for responding

Re: Stomach Problems

Not always... sometimes with reflux you can just have a pressure feeling and don't always get the burning until you are actually refluxing which is kinda like that sour stuff that comes up when you are sick with the flu.

Re: Stomach Problems

When I have GERD attacks sometimes there is no refluxing... I have had pain in the sternum area that sent me to the emergency room because I have had GERD for so long and a couple a years ago had a lot of stress due to deaths in the family that I had a major attack... the pain I usually had around my sternum went all the way up into my chest and I thought I was having a hard attack. So things can vary. Unfortunately everything is kinda related. There are times when you can have inflammation of the chest wall that will also give you a pain all the way across your ribcage under the breasts. But in reality it is better to see a GI doc to make sure. I found that if I had pain in my chest or ribcage area and raised my hands up in the sky and the pressure was better or I took medis it was usually reflux. When you have reflux you have to eat smaller meals and drink a little less.
