    Unhappy Constant Chest Pain

    I'm wondering if anyone else has ever had this problem, or might know what it is. For a while know I've been getting constant chest pains between my breasts, right under the breast bone. I take Acid Reflux medicine but that doesn't relieve the chest pain, just the upper stomach pain (the doctor though I might have an ulcer as a result of taking too much ibuprofen last summer).

    I'm worried because sometimes the pain moves over to the right side of my chest, and sometimes to the left. I don't think it's gas because I have it constantly. Sometimes my throat will also swell, along with my tonsils. I often have trouble swallowing at these times. Sometimes it's only the lower esophogus that is swollen, and i dont' know until I eat something.

    I currently take Birth Control (low ogestrel), eqaute vision formula (vitamins), vitamin C (500mg), a multi-vitamin, and Nexium (Acid Reflux). The BC and Nexium were all I took until just recently. The pain has been there for about 6 months. Sometimes it becomes only a dull feeling, but evently goes into a stinging pain.

    My chiropractor thought maybe it was spinal, and worked on the area between my shoulder blades. The pain was eased a bit, but still hasn't gone away. (I'm also very big busted, if that's of any use) The pain is a bit worse after I eat, but not always.

    It could be GERD.

    I was diagnosed with it and had the same sympotms. The first 2 drugs did not work. Now I use Aciphex.

    If you have GERD, here is what you want to avoid:
    Caffine (chocolate, coffee, etc)
    Spicy Foods
    Over Eating
    Fried Foods
    Fatty Foods
    Citrus (also apples)
    Nicotine (non smoker)
    Eating 4 hours before bed
    Lying flat
    Ketchup, mustard

    May be a good idea to ask your doctor for an upper GI. If you try this and it helps, you most likely have GERD.

    By the way i also have that lup in teh throatfeeling what helps me is to keep my mouth moist i drink alot of water and also aloe vera juice is great and honey, between taking nexium for 3 weeks and this, it has helped alot, also try hot tea, I think that when your mouth is dry the feeling gets worst

    I take nexium currently, and I still get indigestion as well as the chest pain! i had to eat two tums last night to stop the burning feeling, but it didn't take away the chest pain.
