    Can gas cause upper chest tightness ?

    Going to doctor tomorrow.

    Woke up with upper chest tightness and slight stomach discomfort. Feel better a little bit now.

    Trying to calm my nerves.

    Those can be symptoms of reflux. Gas can cause referred pain in the upper chest.

    Are you seeing a specialist tomorrow? Hopefully you will be set up with testing and a diagnosis.

    Please update on how your appointment goes.

    Usually asthma causes chest tightness.

    this used to happen to me too...but my GI said gas can indeed be trapped in upper abdomen/ lower chest area...

    but u should see a cardio just in case

    Your GI doctor will be able to determine if this is gas related or if it is cardiac related... tests are in your future, for sure.

    Please make sure you are seeing a GI doctor and not a regular PCP, or request that you are referred to a GI.
