About 6 weeks ago I started having severe chest pain, followed by vomiting. I ended up in the emergency room. The did an ekg, drew blood and took x-rays. After giving me some strong pain medication and scheduling an ultr sound they sent me home. I had the ultra sound the next day...normal. Then I had an upper GI...again normal.
No one can say what is causing this all the while I continue to have extreme chest pain and vomiting. Do these symptoms sound famaliar to anyone???

  • if your pain is across the chest and at the breastbone you could have reflux. ask for an egd. it's a scope of your esophagus/duodenum.

  • Do you fit the profile for a heart attack? An normal EKG isn't always an all clear for cardiac issues. Look up angina.
