    Prolonged Chest Pain

    Hi All,

    Just wondered if anyone else has the same symptoms as me. I have had this for about 2 months now and I beleive to be Gerd, as I have had the heart rule out after having to go to ER, had all the tests they said it is a virus. Most of the problems I had have cleared up now apart from chest pain and a slight sore throat. My chest pain is like a dull ache that can goes up my chest and down my left arm and slight tingling feeling in fingers, it is also sensative to touch just left of my lower sternum, I also have a sore thoart, which is a weird feeling, feeling of fullness at bottom on thoart and a feeling of swelling around my adams apple although it isnt.

    In the last 8 weeks I have have chest pain for 31 days all in blocks and then periods without any for 25 days, all weird.

    I have also started having heartburn this week, which I did not get before just chest pain, my doc says I should have an endoscopy but have to wait until April to see the consultant (NHS).

    Sorry it is long but would welcome your comments.

    I would suggest in addition to seeing a gastroenterologist, to also see an ear, nose and throat specialist since you've got a lingering sore throat. They will be able to scope your larynx and see if any reflux is irritating the vocal cord area.
