I'm 24 years old weight 298 lbs and stand 5'10" tall and a smoker. Here is my story. (Sorry for the length.) I have been having some center to left of center chest discomfort. This has been going on for over two months now. I first went and visited a local clinic and they did an EKG and said that my heart was fine. I still had this discomfort for another few days and it was to the point I was losing sleep and it was making my day to day activities bothersome. I went to the ER and they did another EKG and Chest X-rays and told me I was fine and that I just had acid reflux and I was told to take Priolosec OTC. I began my dose of Prilosec and found the discomfort to still be there and only after a week I was back in the ER thinking I was having heart problems. They still told me that is was acid reflux and that the pain/discomfort was from anxiety. I sheduled an appt. with my normal Doctor and I explained to him what was happening and he said there was nothing wrong with my heart, but that I had high blood pressure and anxiety. He prescribed me Loppressor for the high blood pressure, which has since been lowered, and Triavil for the anxiety. I have been taking these drugs for almost a month now and I still have this discomfort in my chest. Can anyone help me with this or let me know what I need to do? Thank you in advance for any help.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
