About Me: Male, 31, Bangalore, India, member since May 2010
About 2 years ago all of a sudden I had a bad gas problem in reguards to burping. The gas buildup in my stomach actually made me feel like I was having a heart attack, I had a severe cheat pain on my left side - to the point where my left arm was tingeling. However, I
[More] found that when I started to burp a lot the pain went away. However now the side of my chest had a throbing pain. I went to my doctor and he said the severe gas caused the discomfort and I somehow pulled a muscle on the side of my chest. He gave me some anti-inflamatory's and the pain went away. Now almost two years later the same problem came back. The gas preasure pulled that muscle again. I'm wondering if you ever heard of this kind of discomfort from gas pain and what it might be. It does seem that whenever I feel like I having a heart attack that simply releasing the built up gas by burping makes it go away. It also seems that I get light headed every now and then but my blood presure has always been good, but I think that might be dehydration.
