chest pain, ? esophageal spasms
Hi ! I have posted on other threads. Here is a quick story... Had H pylori since Jan. Went thru 3 doses of triple/meds. to finally get rid of it. I had 2 endscopies, one in Jan. one in oct. Had gastritis, esophagitis, on 2nd endoscopy Dr. said both were healing very well. ( was on acidphex, nexium, prevacid, ect. tried them all) Developed low parathryoid, low vitamin D from ??? H pylori or PPI's, drs not sure why??? Levels normal now. Had GB out in Oct, had stones and 0% function. I was also on Zoloft for 6 months- they thought it was anxiety, but still had the pain and made me feel like a zombie so did my time as Dr. wanted but slowly weaned off and no difference in chest pain.
Here is problem... still have chest pain, can not find out why. Cardiac workup- negative ( thank goodness). The pain is a squeezing, mostly worse after eating solids, sometimes liquids too. Sometimes feels like need to burp, relieves pain for 1 min. but pain comes back.Sometimes is very bad, makes you slightly sob, weak. rapid heartbeat. No appetite, fatigue,have lost over 30lbs. As everyone else on this site I just want my life back.... this has been almost 1 year and still no end to this chest pain. Any help advice is so much appreciate.... god bless.

Re: chest pain, ? esophageal spasms
I wanted to let you know that I also have esophageal spasms. I get chest pain too, not sure what they come from if it is from spasms or something else. Do you still have your chest pain? How are you doing now?
