Since August (so 6mths) I have had a heaviness / tightness in my chest. It feels like my asthma is bothering me. It was so bad I could hardly walk around. I went to a cardiologist who did a stress test and echo and 2 ekg's all were normal. I went to a lung dr who at first changed my meds which did not do anything and then did official breathing tests and said it was not asthma/lung related. He also did a CT scan with contrast dye to check for lung clots. It sent me to the ER once cause it was so bad. They did EKG, chest xray and checked my enzymes all were fine. They said possibly GERD or anxiety. I have never had anxiety ever. SO I got on Prilosec and Wellbutrin XL. I finally started feeling some better. Everynight I wake up with the smothering feeling and it passes after 5-10 min.Also eating Halls cough drops seems to help it. I have always had a hard rapid heart rate but the last couple days that has been worse too. Today the pressure is worse in my chest. I do not know where to go from here. I will be coming off the wellbutrin XL 150 mg cause I think it is making my heart rate worse. Any advice?Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
