For 2-3 years GI's told me my chest/rib-cage pain, chest pressure and lack of air was due to reflux. Now I have Barrets and Gastritis but they are saying my symptoms are not related to this. I have seen every specialist on the book including Pulmonologiest and they just can't tell me what my problem is. I have chest pain that never goes away, rib-cage pain sometimes and I also feel pressure on my chest all day long and lack of air which is aggravated when I talk, walk and eat. The chest pressure doubles/triples when I go in to a pool with water up to my chest. It sure feels like a lung issue but my Pulmonologiest and even VA said is not COPD. I just contracted another functional medicine which order 2 more test to see if it has to do with food sensitivity but he actually does not believe it does. He did say that maybe is a nerve issue which happens to be his specialty besides functional medicine. The only time the pressure and chest pain goes away 80-95% is when I go to sleep or completely lay back. I do have gluten sensitivity (I'm gluten free) and my cortisol levels are high which is no surprise if you have to live with pain every single day with no answers. Btw, I have normal acid levels and apparently the reflux is a response to stress. Any comment is appreciated! ;-) God Bless!
