Hi Everyone!

For the last month or 2 I have had chest pain, upper back pain and now for a few weeks, pain in my armpits. I got Chest X-Rays, Blood drawn, EKG, stress test and an Upper GI Endoscopy. Doctor put me on omeprazole, ranitidine and pantaprozole, siad it may be gerd and hiatal hernia but those meds did nothing. Going for an esophagram tomorrow.

    Just a guess I had similar pain and it took awhile to figure out. It turned out to be gallbladder stones.

    hope your diagnosis comes in soon and you feel better.

      Thank you ! Just had an esophagram and all is well with a very small hiatal hernia. Found out that it is not causing the pain. Next step is getting an x-ray on the gall bladder

      I honestly hope it's not stones. The doc is doing all the testing to rule out what is causing the pain. 

      You sound like ur in very good spirits. 

      Wishing you the best with the next test.
