Went to the ER with what I felt was heart pain while there I had a panic attack they did a complete blood work and EKG both were normal they did an ultrasound and told me that my gallbladder was fine but I have something that look like a polyp he didn't appear to be concerned . A little background I'm 27 years old female 2 children approximately 5 foot 1 about 130 pounds I really never had any type of heartburn besides with pregnancy. Under some stress, don't work out but felt healthy besides lately with this issue. Not over weight. The dr diagnosed me with gerd. I still don't feel heart burn really. The soft spot in the center under the sternum has a weird feeling. I have bloating at my upper abdomen shortly after I will notice my lower abdomen will bloat also. My sternum and upper back area hurt almost like a need to stretch or crack. Most importantly I have below my right ear lobe following down my neck to the soft center above my esophagus. But the pinch nerve feeling goes down the left side of my chest ending in the center area below my sternum. A burning nausea pressure feeling there. I have a rapid heart rate feeling after I eat and almost a passing out feeling but after having that panic attack Im not sure if its related or anxiety driven. I feel horrible constantly afraid its pancreatic cancer. This pinch nerve feeling is horrible and leaves me irritable. Ive been on a double dose of prilosec no help. Do my symptoms seem gerd related?
These symptoms in my opinion are NOT related to Pancreatic cancer. You don't have to be overweight to have GERD.
Sounds like GERD symptoms and I would recommend you reconsulting your physician and let him/her know the Prilosec is not working for you.
The "rapid heart rate" situation.....is this happening everytime you eat? Sounds like your vagus nerve is getting overly stimulated and this could possibly tie in with the GERD; not sure. DO INFORM your physician about this as well.
You should consult a GI Specialist and have an Upper Endoscopy done as well. Get a second opinion from the GI Specialist about this "polyp."
