Chest pain - is this normal?

Posted , 6 users are following.

hi! week 5 now, 10mg a day and a perscribed med for acid reflux but almost daily im experiencing chest pain, it radiates right across my chest down to my sternum under my breasts and sometimes into my left breast. chest x ray and ekg both came back normal.. just curious if this happened to anyone else jn the early stages?im trying to stay positive as i have had it checked out but its so damn uncomfortable and of course puts my anxiety levels higher than they need to be! any stories or advice would be appreciated

    I have had chest pains and heavy pressure feeling in my chest for over a year now.

    Put it down to the anxiety but may be it is a side effect. The more i worry and focus on it the worse it is.

      yes thats what the doctor who gave me an ultrasound of my heart (probably more for my peace of mind than him actually thinking there was a problem lol) told me, the more i focus on it the more of an issue it becomes.. im going to try meditation or walking when this happens see if i can distract myaelf long enough for it to subside i do believe its anxiety ridden

    Same happens to me too. I've had ecg etc, all ok. Agree with Lois re the Omeprazole.

      yes the last ER doc i had gave me an ultrasound and showed me everythings working as it should, said in the early stages anxiety will be heightened and suggested benzos to take the edge off during the transition phase but i think im just going to try and push through and let my body get used to everything. he also said because the meds are controlling my inner anxiety the body can react in physical ways... just scares me but glad to hear im not the only one and it will eventually fade away!
