Hi, I Am In The Military And Ive Had These Particular Symptoms For Over Two Years. It Comes And Goes, But Im At The Point Where I Know Its There And It Prevents Me From Doing My Job, Because It Causes Me To Or At Least It Feels Like Im Unable To Breath Or Shortness Of Breath. My Symptoms Are This; I Feel Full All The Time, And This Causes Me To Breath Up More. I Feel Pressure Not Pain, Under My Heart, When I Lay Down For Bed. Sometimes It Feels Like Im Having A Anxiety Attack. So Far I Have Had A Chest And Belly X-ray; Been Tested For G.e.r.d.; Been Given Flagyl For A Possible Gastritis;i Took Zantacs For 30 Days; I Have Been Given An Ultra Sound To My Belly And I Have Taken This Nasty White Stuff That Makes U Want To Burp So Bad, But Cant..i Have Yet To Be Treated Or Diagnosed For What I Have. Its Still There And They, The Army Medical Staff, Always Start Back At The Beginning. Can Someone Please Help Me..thank You..

Can Someone Please Help Me..thank You..We used to be in the military ... make sure they have done a PFT (pulmonary function test) and a stress test. They treated my husband for GERD for 1 year ... fortunately our doc ordered a stress test and when it came back negative, they did a heart cath. Good thing; he had two 95%+ blockages which they stented. It probably prevented a heart attack. Good luck

  • I'm not sure if your male or female, but in females, fullness is one of the first signs of ovarian cancer....if your male, however this would not be the case....prostate?? maybe have it checked. Good luck and thanks for serving!
