I've been experiencing bouts of crush chest pain, that radiates through to my back. It is between my breasts and goes through to between my shoulder blades. Saw a doctor 2 years ago who told me it was stress and to "not worry about it."
The pain comes and goes, will go away for a few months, then I'll experience it alot one month, then goes away again.
Starting in January I started experiencing bad indigestion and vomiting. Vomiting occoured the day after drinking alcohol (usually one or two beers). This happened 5 or 6 times between january and march - it was to the point where I couldn't even keep water down, but then would be fine the next day.
I cut alcohol out of my diet, but am still experiencing the random chest pains. It is so severe when it happens all I can do is lay in bed, to the point of tears. My indigestion and heart burn has gotten worse. I also experience bad bloating after eating, even if I just eat a salad.
I have had blood work done, GI X Rays and Ultrasounds, which all came back normal. I've been taking Zantac for the past month to relieve symptoms, but am still experieincing the heartburn. I'm not sure what to do - the Dr. doesn't seem concerned but I want this pain to go away, it is interfering with my life!
I'm 26, jog 3 times a week, live a fairly active life style, don't smoke, I was drinking socially about twice a week, I eat healthy, mostly home cooked meals... I am on birth control, but no other medication (other than the zantac). Never had any health concerns, besides being diagnosed with small ovarian cysts which haven't caused me any lower abdomnial pain...
Thanks very much for anyone who has any input...
