Chest pain

Hi there. I don't know if this is the right board.

I have a chest pain that is being stubborn and is still around. It feels like something is stuck in my chest, it goes all the way through to my back. it's pretty well centered, just above my diagphram. I have bad heartburn that is probably acid reflux as I have had it for years but have been self medicating. every post I have seen leads me to believe that this could be the problem. What I'm wondering is how serious this could be, it literally feels like I have a fish bone or something in my chest! Also how quickly it can be fixed. It's really getting to me but I can't get to the doctors for a couple days.

Any help would be appreciated.

Re: Chest pain

I think If u have dealing with this problem for years , you have to start seeing Dr
the good thing to do now is to douple the dose of the antiacid u r taking for reflux
and avoid spicy food alcohol and smoking
and see a dr please
keep us updated

Re: Chest pain

I guess what I'm really wondering is if this is in fact due to my heartburn, or if it could be another problem. The heartburn and (possible) acid reflux is an old problem. This is a very new pain. It started Friday, and hasn't gone away that I've noted since then. While it's not something I can't deal with, I am worried.

Re: Chest pain

Yes thats definitely Gerd systoms have you tried Zantac or some over the counter meds or even prilosec OTC it will take a few day for te lump to go away because it is usually mean your throat is swollen but it will subside once you treat it.
