I am hoping to figure this out.... 41Yr Female- I recently had an upper EGD performed with two biopsies. It came back I have mild gastritis and acid reflux. I have been on prevacid 30mg which I am supposed to take twice a day, but I don't feel well when I take the 2nd one. I have complained of a burning sensation in the chest-going up the throat. The prevacid has helped the sensation going up the throat, but my chest is still burning!
Two weeks ago I started with a cold/cough. I went to the Drs, but I think it was too soon as they said the cough was related to the GERD. But two days later the cough was deep in my chest and loose. I had stuff come up, but I am unable to spit out- so I can't tell you the color, etc. Now the cough is worse in the morning's and evenings, though I don't sound as raspy. However, my chest is still burning- my breasts feel lumpy with spots that hurt (scheduled for a mammography in 2 more weeks)....and my sternum has pressure points that also hurt. The Drs mentioned Costochronditis, but from what I read I am not sure if that is the answer as I don't hurt when I take a deep breath.
I do feel almost asthmatic at times. No real fever (low grade)....Today I also feel a little nose congestion...bad headache. Honestly, do I go back to the GP tomorrow? I feel like they think all of this is anxiety...and I am sure that doesn't help, but this burning in my chest is disturbing and very bothersome. Could I have bronchitis? The cough the past week was bad. Today, I coughed so hard in the morning I nearly threw up....
Please help! (I am scheduled for the heart monitor and eccho in 2 weeks, too)....
