3 weeks ago I ate a heavy serving of shrimp scampi pasta, with large broccoli pieces, large shrimp, and lemon juice sprinkled on top. I ate so much that I could barely breathe, but it was so good.
A few days after that, i am hit with chronic nausea, stomach tightness and pressure near my left chest. The biggest problem for me is the nausea that doesn't go away.. I've tried Pepto, pepcid, Dramamine, and Omeprazole.. so far nothing is helping me.
I've gotten blood work, ekg's and chest scans from the er and everything is normal. My gastro appointment is over 2 weeks away, and I honestly don't think I can last that long. I can barely stand because of the stomach tightness and the extreme nausea. I haven't vomited yet though. I rarely have any heartburn and I don't have any pain... Just tightness and nausea...
My question is, have anyone experienced long bouts of indigestion like this? Could this be a hiatal hernia? I sit at my desk all day and I tend to slouch so I wouldn't be surprised if that's what it is. I've actually noticed over the years that my stomach felt like it was growing tighter, but I didn't have any other issues like nausea or reflux.
If you've had any similar symptoms please let me know. I'm losing my mind
