Re: GERD/GB and chest pain?
I had severe chest pains which sent me to the ER on one occasion. I have since had an extensive cardiac workup and my heart is fine. I have a hiatal hernia and gastritis and apparently one or both of them cause this pain. It does sometimes radiate to the back. It is quite upsetting. However, it isn't made worse by physical activity. In fact I can be at rest when it happens, even asleep. So if you have increased chest pain with physical activity, get it checked one more time. Perhaps it is a chest muscle, but check anyway. Unfortunately, heart problems can cause abdominal symptoms like nausea and abdominal disorders can cause chest pain. You almost have to see a doctor to figure out which it is.
I have a question for you. You mentioned that you were seeing a cranialsacral therapist, whatever that is, and she pushed your stomach back down. That sounds like a hiatal hernia. I would love to know how you do that? I didn't know a hiatal hernia could be physically pushed back down. Please tell me how that is done. Thanks.
