Wierd Pain!!

Hi for the last 3 years now i have been experiencing some bad pains in my chest. I have mentioned them to doctors but have never gotten any sort of direct answer. by the way im 22 and male.

What happens is that sometimes i get this pain in my chest, usually slightly to the right (not heart side) and next thing i get a load of clear water pouring up out of my throat and i usually just stand there for a couple of minutes facing the groung letting it all come up.

This is not saliva because when i do spit its differant and i sometimes get it in bed at night and it usually ends up in me getting sick and then it goes away.

Sometimes however when i make myself get sick to get rid of it i might just bring up a mouthful of this liquid and nothing else. Its really bad this year for some reason and im in my final year of college so i need to sleep.

If anyone knows let me know

It almost sounds like acid reflux. Does it taste really icky? I would suggest this to your doctor. Also GERD can cause a pain like that.

Re: Wierd Pain!!

GERD means Gastro Esophageal Reflux Disease. It involves the "backward flow" of stomach contents into the esophagus. It's really a new term for old fashioned heartburn, acid indigestion or hiatal hernia.

Hiatal hernia occurs when part of the upper stomach herniates, or bulges, into the chest cavity. I'm not sure if you have this, but it's a possibility since you are having some chest pain.

I think the "water" suddenly coming up into your mouth is known as "waterbrush" due to excess acidity in the stomach that comes up the esophagus into your mouth.

If your own doc didn't address this possibility, see a gastroenterologist.

Simple lifestyle changes, especially regading diet, sometimes combined with medication, can treat most cases of GERD.
