In Reply to: Chest Discomfort, breathing, gerd? HELP :) posted by Adam2000 on October 28, 2000 at 16:53:07:
hi, I seem to be doing the same thing. It feels like lung and heart problems?!! My dr. sent me to an Iridologist (reads the iris) I was skeptical but she seemed to know all the boo boo places. I was suprised. She says stress is a major factor and has me doing some simple maneuvers,gave me some healing supplements (not expensive), told me no eating 3hrs. before bed and has me avoiding sugar, wheat and some other high acid foods. If I stick to the rules maybe I'll feel healthier and be skinny even after the Holidays! Good luck and don't think prescription drugs are the only solution.: Hi :)
: A few weeks ago I started having a weird feeling in my chest about an inch lower than my sternum, like pressure. I had really bad acid reflux, and it started feeling like my breathing was off. It was tight when I inhaled and released air quite rapidly. It wasnt a calm smooth exhale. Just all at once. I also have a constantly elevated temperature (99.3-100) and get tired early. And I had been coughing up clear mucous like phlegm, and my bronchial area seemed constricted. But no chest congestion.
: I went to my doctor and he told me I probably had bronchitis, and GERD. He gave me Zantac to take 2 x a day and cough medecine, and Azithromycin. My heartburn is somewhat better, i still have a temperature and feel tired sometimes, have a feeling of pressure along the bottom of my rib cage, and my breathing is better, but still not right.
: Seems to me like I have some sort of infection. I had a chest xray the other day, and everything in there was fine. I dont know what it could be, but Im getting rather worried as this has been going on for a few weeks. Its better than it was but not gone. The breathing and the pressure are especially annoying.
: Any ideas on what this may be?
