View Full Version : What is wrong with me?

02-28-2011, 02:08 PM
I have been having several issues for the past 7 months. I have had several tests done. Blood tests, mri, ct scan, chest xrays. Nobody can figure out my problem..

I have been experiencing chest pressure to where I have to burp constantly to relieve the pressure. I also have a buring sensation, similiar to heartburn. I have been taking heartburn meds and they have done nothing. When I experience this chest pressure my vision also goes crazy. Its almost like my eyes dont focus and it gives me this "woozy" feeling. How would the chest and eyes be related? Also I always feel short of breath, I find myself trying to take deep breaths and cant seem to be "satisfied". So my symptoms are chest pressure, burning feeling in the center of my chest ( right at the bottom of my breastbone and about 5 inches up). Eyes not right making me feel woozy and short of breath. Anyone have any ideas?? I also feel like my heart flutters but every test Ive had says its normal. I can feel my heartbeat in my eyes and when I try to sleep my eyes feel like they are fluttering and going crazy.

Ive seen almost every kind of doctor except a GI. This is on my next list of things. Is/has anyone experienced this type of thing? PLEASE HELP. I CANT TAKE IT ANYMORE...

With all the tests you've had done, the only thing I can think of is a possible food allergy. Might try keeping a food log to see if you can determine a pattern. Also, you might try a tablespoon of Apple Cider Vinegar in a glass of water for that symptom that sounds a lot like acid reflux.
I'm assuming with all the tests, the doctors checked for heart trouble?

Ive had ekg's, echocardiograms, a wore a holter monitor for 3 days and logged activities, Ive done almost everything doctors can think of, minus an endoscopy. There is def something going on in my chest. I have constant pressure (having to burp all the time) and slight pain at the base of my breastbone. I do feel worse after eating but it hasnt mattered what I ate. I am stumped and SICK of suffering this feeling. It also affects my vision. Sometimes I see jsut fine and other times it feels like I am looking through a fish bowl..

Just for the heck of it, try the Apple Cider Vinegar. It couldn't hurt. 1 tablespoon in a glass of water. I'm curious to know if it works. Let me know.

Hi has an arteriogram been done by anyone? Are there any pills being taken? Has a respiratory specialist been seen? A cardiologist? Perhaps if the GI specialist is seen an endoscopy could check the stomach.

Have gallbladder issues been ruled out?

Yes I have taken several different pilss for "heartburn" nothing has worked. Ive taken prilosac, zantac and Omeperazole. Nothing works and whatever is goin on alway is attached to my eyes somehow. They thought I may have anxiety issues but have taken xanax and that also does or changes nothing.

Hi it is said that the stomach is connected to the brain, it also used to be said that the eyes were merely an extension of the brain.

If the stomach can be healed.... well.... maybe the rest of the difficulties will disappear but I still think some special testing such as an arteriogram maybe or a vistit to specialists may be in order.

I might try some of the foods already listed in other places such as cabbage, pineapple and papaya to try to heal the stomach a bit. I would use the vegetables in a separate meal from the fruits.

*Yes I have taken several different pilss for "heartburn" nothing has worked.*

Only an ultrasound will diagnose gallbladder problems. On the web it says burping is not a symptom of gallbladder issues but it was in one of my family members.

The eye thing is really weird though.
