Chest

I've posted so much stuff about this but I only had one reply ... I have chest pains everyday and its been going in for 3-4 months now but I've had EKG's blood tests chest x-ray and everything came back just fine. But I still get them constantly.. And they last all day long..

  Hi and welcome to the GERD forum.

It may be u had  some information that confused some members as to what might be going on.....I see there r 2 replies at this time....

Have u been tested for GERD? It can cause chest pains, and can continue for some time especially if u r under stress and have not modified ur diet and lifestyle as they can cause the GERD to flare even more.

Do see the Health Pages for foods to avoid as well as lifestyle tips u  can try until u see a GI dr.

  Smoking will make u feel worse if u have GERD...u need to stop smoking it is on the list of things to avoid....there is food too, as well as bevs...life style tips....

U need to eat that is another part of ur problem...ur body produces acid when u r hungry preparing to digest food, if u do not eat, the acid builds up...regardless if u feel hungry ur body needs fuel.

Eat several small meals instead of 3 larger meals....

U have a HS and feel dizzy from not eating properly.

Have u talked to ur Dr ...Yaz is one med that has caused some issues...do talk to ur OBGYN and see if it could be from the med.

But get up and eat.But eat good foods, look at the list of foods to avoid while u r having these issues. http://www.medhelp.org/health_pages/Gastroenterology/Foods-to-Avoid--Eating-Behaviors-for-Acid-Reflux-Heartburn--GERD-Sufferers/show/151?cid=236

thank you and i i try to eat as much as i can but thats not very often..
4250330 tn?1388624779
could that be something else because everytime i put ice on my chest it seems to help a little bit and it helps me take a deep breath

  It could be something else....but u need to eat, regardless what it is u need strength and energy to get better.
4250330 tn?1388624779
i have been eating now lol
620923 tn?1452919248

  Glad to hear it...just avoid foods and bevs that make u feel bad afterward...keep a journal to help u eliminate food and help ur Dr figure out what may be the issue.

Keep us posted : )

4250330 tn?1388624779
the pain is beside my left breast when i lay my daughter on my chest it hurts on my left side towards my arm.. i also get the bad headaches that are like on the left and right side of the back of my head and it feels like its on my neck too ? i was diagnosed with chronic headaches and migraines tho but the pain in my chest occurs too when i lay my daughter on my chest it is also on the right side of my right breast too now..

  How old is ur DD?...Were u breast feeding her? I am only guessing but could it be something to do with breast feeding or a result of not doing it....something u should try asking ur OBGYN about and see if it could be related.....
