For 2 days now, I have a pain in my chest (sternum) that goes through to my back. It feels like I swallowed something and it won't go down. It hurts to swallow liquids, food. It kind of feels like a burp is stuck, too. When the pain hits, I can't bend over till the pain subsides. Some ppl I've asked say it could be my gall bladder, some say hiatal hernia, some say ulcers. I've never had any stomach problems in my life. It is really getting to be very bothersome. Can anyone offer any suggestion of what it might be? I have no health insurance, so if it's something not that serious, I'll just ignore it for now, until it gets worse. I have no stomach pain whatsoever. Tums and Pepto do nothing.
