For the last two months, i've been having chronic pain right above my xphroid process, but inside pain, almost feels like something is infected, very sore!I've had x-ray done, coud'nt find anything.Doc think's it could be my esophagus, but i don't have pain when i swallow.I'm going to have an endoscopy doe, but i have a feeling it's not my esopagus, if it's not, that only leaves my heart & aorta in that area, right?Is there anyone out there that has this same symptom, or might know what this pain might be caused from?

By brother was diagnoised with Barretts Esophagus.......seemingly the nerves in the esophagus are burnt with acid reflux & then there is no pain with it.......but always has to be regularly checked to keep an eye on in, as there is no cure as such, he does take medicine to keep refux at bay so it doesnt do any further damage ! Well thats kinda the way he told me what his consultant said. Hope i havent got it wrong ! Hope things go well for u, Good Luck :)

  • The endoscopy may help narrow things down... hopefully you will have an answer soon after the test.

  • Get the parathyroid checked out perhaps.
