i´m tire of being scared.
my symptoms are: upper stomach gets very tight after a meal.
swell, and sore abdominal area.
sudden hearth bumps like if i were about to suffer a
a heart attack, but with out any pain, or shortness
of breath or left arm pain.
a couple of panic attacks
some nausa, on ocations, specially after a spicy meal.
sudden air bubbles that provoques me unproductive
and quit lately , sudden stabbings pains at my right
side head, just avobe my ear.
when i´m experiencing those symptoms, (specially my chest very tight) , the only thing that releases this uncomfortness is erupting ( blurp).
several doctors had told me , that it is gastritis, but, i had it long time ago, besides i dont have acid reflux.
other doctor told me it was costocondritis.
anotherone told me it was an hiato hernia.
otherone told me it was nervious or exces of stress.
all of x-ray and blood test as well sugar level, oxigen in blood and cartiladge , show nothing at all, no hernia, no colesterol, no nothing.
so please i´m begging you, what could it be wrong that doctors havent found, yet.
It sounds to me like it is possible that your tight stomach is caused by gastritis, which is an inflammation of the stomach lining that can also lead to erosion. Gastritis causes symptoms like feeling bloated, abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting, loss of appetite, feeling full quickly, burping, and chest pain.
I would suggest you get another doctor. It sounds like you haven't had much luck in the diagnostic department so far. Perhaps with the next one, you can ask them if your problems could be caused by gastritis? An endoscopy can be used to confirm that diagnosis, so maybe ask for one?
I have had these symptoms for about five years now, I have been to every doctor under the sun and they just are inconsistent in evaluating what is going on or are overly dogmatic.
I have been diagnosed with two things: hiatal hernia (2cm) and sarcoisodis. I believe it is the hiatal hernia that is probably causing these problems but I can't be sure. In any case. If you find anything which helps please let me know. my email address is _[removed]_
Also try to improve eating habits. Make sure to give enough time for digestion.
its reli worrying me
but i called the ambulance one time because i really couldnt breathe and i got diagnosed with panick attacks
but.. i have a tight chest specially round the top of my stomach almost constantly
your not alone :-)
i'm only 16..
In the past 3-4 days I feel a horrible heart thump, feels like my heart stops then makes a huge kick.
Im 19 and for the past month iv'e had to sleep in every day I can, even going to bed at 7:30pm some days and still feeling tired throughout the day.
I really hope someone can help us %-)
wow only 19 and feeling this way, thats crazy. Ya im also tired alot. No matter how mcuh sleep we get we still seem so tired and weak :S something just isnt right.
the heart thumps are usually pulpitations, which can feel really awkward. Ive had those checked and apartently theres nothing wrong with that, i disagree, it shouldnt be right to have those.
The symptom is most obvious when I lay down in bed at night. My chest feels 'tight' and I feel as if my heart is going to come out from my mouth, such an unpleasant sensation. Evidently I can't fall asleep until 3 a.m.
Maybe the prospect of a forthcoming visit of my family (I got married and live abroad) makes me very nervous? (Will my house please them? Will they be happy with my arrangements? Will they find me older and rounder) I drink 2 cups of decaf every weekend, would it be the cause?
Through all the tests done and all the diagnosis i have been given nothing seems to have worked, has anyone here had any luck with foods, specific exercises that helps with the feelings?
I was living my life just fine and then BAM! Someone I really wanted to be friends with attacked me verbally and she was maybe high or something while she did it.
I tried to talk to her but she just kept spewing venom at me.
So... why I'm telling you this is that EVER SINCE THAT NIGHT, I have had this super-tight feeling in my upper stomach. Kind of like a hungry feeling, but I'm not hungry 'cause I eat well.
My abdomen feels really hard like many of you described.
What I finally did to make myself feel better was this:
I CRIED. A LONG TIME.
After I did this, the stress went away. I was holding all that pain inside. I know it sounds weird, but I think what I learned is that we hold feelings inside if we don't deal wtih them. Man, that must be how people get cancer. I'm serious! So I cried and cried. Because I feel I cannot be this person's friend. I really wanted to be her friend. We could've been good girl friends, but I don't think she wants to be my friend, and that made me really sad.
I also learned that that area is called the "heart chakra" in Eastern thinking, and that if you touch that area and it's painful, then you might have some emotional hurt stored there.
Does that make sense?
Well, crying helped me a lot. I have to see this person again soon and I know I'll either be attacked again by her... or I will stop her from verbally attacking me by saying: "Stop beating me up with your feelings!!!!" (cause she was telling me I caused her to feel all these feelings, which I don't. We are not responsible for how other people feel; that is the truth.)
So I hope this has helped some of you because I think our society doesn't feel enough or in my would-be friend's case-- some of us feel so much that we dump our feelings on others and expect them to feel for us, if that makes sense.
My stomach is better. My doctor says 95% of what she sees in her office is STRESS-RELATED. I really believe that. So let's learn to relax people and let ourselves be healthy and well.
Peace to you.
