Every once in a while i will wake up in the middle of the night with serious chest pains. It almost feels like there is an bubble stuck in my throat or heart. I try burping but its very painful to try to push a burp out. If i press my chest it also causes discomfort. The wierd part is that i usually breath very heavily when this happens but if i stop and try to calm down it makes it feel a little better but not back to normal. I have it right now and i am fully calm but i can still feel the discomfort in my throat and it's not something that can be ignored. It's very uncomfortable and fairly painful but i dont know what to do to stop this pain which usually lasts a few hours at least. Can someone help me?
Have you seen a doctor yet? if not thats the first thing i would do maybe you have acid reflux or something like that. I took prilosec for a while and it helped my chest pain and now when i feel it coming on I take a few tums and i never lay flat when I sleep. Hope this helps and hope you feel better. let me know how you make out.
