help plz

can anyone tell me if they have this,,   i got asthma cold in oct, was to scared to take the inhalers went month and half not taking meds than had to one day,  the inhalers didnt kill me everything was ok.

i have pac/pvc that why i was scared of them.  now its been 4 months am on a steroid inhaler because i was having some chest pains and felt like i could not breath good.  so went to cardio dr they did ekg it was good but since i told them i had chest pain and felt like i could not breath good they ordered a stress/nuclear test.

i can not do that test right now ,ive been under anxiety so much since oct and getting asthma.  since i have worried myself into anxiety i now have lots air in chest and belch all the time, i belive thats where the chest pain coming from and the feel like i cant breath.

right below my breast in between my ribs is so sore to push on ,from stress i belive

does anyone have this problem with stress. i guess i dont want to take the heart test i do not feel like its my heart . i did not have pain or feel like i could not breath until all this asthma stuff came on and the anxiety,

if i didnt have the air in chest belching/ feel stressed and not eating good than i would worry its heart. but i have all of thoses
plus i can run on my treadmill and not have pain or short of breath. what do ya think, i just cant make up mind weather to have it or put it off till this disaperas and than if still having problems get the test. what would ya do thank you so much.

Hi, sorry u r feeling so poorly.First u need to try and relax...stress is not good for ur health and will promote gerd if u don't already have it.
Please get a name of a good gastro dr from ur PCP.The longer gerd is left untreated it is possible to get perm damage from the acid.

please post an update

Well, I had testing on my heart just to be safe.It is possible to have both issues...and u do not want to overlook one for the other.
I believe ur dr is thinking about ur best interests here.

Is there a risk in having the test?

Also, it is good to have a stree test in ur files for future reference.

Godspeed

i had the test done 5 years ago it was clear , no harm in having it but right now am so anxiety dont think i can do it.   i ve had test on heart many times but not this one latley and only reasoin dr doing it is because i said i was short of breath but i know its from the anxiety gerd because i have a up-set tummy and lots sir in chest belching a lot.  i had two ekg in last two months they were both good, bp little high but because of this stress. i just want to let this anxiety calm down get tummy better than do but not sure they let me

I am sure if u tell ur dr that u want to calm down ur stomach acids and calm ur nerves b4 ne more testing I am sure he will allow it.....u r not showing signs of needing it doen stat....or they would have it done already.

Try whatevers is best to relax...and continue the gerd meds ur dr rx'd......I pray u soon will feel better.
