I was just recently discharged from the hospital after testing negative for cardio issues. I am having a burning sensation in my strenum that only occurs during exertion. I had a stress test, nuclear photos, and the whole 9 yards of tests. During the stress test I told my doctor that the burning was increasing as we progressed. Yet they could find no signs of trouble. I have been out for 2 days and still experiencing same symptoms. They started me on Nexium but I am not seeing much of a change. I have cardio issues - 2 years ago I had heart cath and 2 stents were placed in my heart at that time. What should I do? I feel foolish checking into the er again.
So sorry you are experiencing your pain. You sound like your on top of whatever is going on. I too have burning and had a stint put in this last Oct. 2008. I don't know why you are having this burning just found it interesting that I have this problem but in a different area under my underarm as well my chest.
Going to the ER is ok better safe then sorry. I kind of feel like you about going though, but everyone around me tells me I should go to the ER when my pain gets very bad.
I'm also just started coming here looking for answers myself.
I am interested also in what you said they didn't find anything while in the ER what it just blood work this time?
