Hi I've posted many times about my multiple symptoms but need some advice on a few new ones.in the past 6 weeks I've had 4 off these episodes it's the most excruciating pain in my back shoulders chest ribs and also today my throat all at the sane time it also makes my teeth hurt and I feel like I have indigestion.they last about 2 hours and ease abit if I lay down or find a comfort able position.obviously I think I'm having a heart attack or maybe gallbladder.ive seen my doc about this and She  says she thinks it's a muscoskelatal  spasm  I hurt in these places everyday but this is of the scale i haveI had my gallbladder scanned last year and it was healthy so doc says very very unlikely to be that any advice thanks guys xx

    I had something very very similar to that a few weeks ago. The pain was worse in my chest, right at the very top of my abdomen and in my back. I had to take some reflux tablets for a few days, which are called lansoprazole and it cleared and didn't come back. 

    It's very possible it's indigestion as it sounds very much like what I had. And like you said it eased when laying down.

    Ask your GP for medication of this type ( for reflux ) and it should help a great deal

      Yes it is horrible. Without more knowledge I'm afraid I don't know what else to suggest with regards to medication. Although peppermint tea works wonders for your stomach, and it's caffeine free. Have 1 cup in the morning and one in the evening. It doesnt taste as nice as it smells but it works very well if drank regularly
