Hey guys so I was diagnosed with Costo a few months ago and then diagnosed with fibromyalgia in January. I also have severe anxiety mainly dealing with health anxiety! So anyway I've had about 5 ekgs And blood tests even a heart monitor just over these last 8 months. Anyway all the chest pain seemed to come one after I had my gallbladder out in August so my doctor thinks that I have fibromyalgia that has settled in my chest and that's why I get the chest pain. I also have moments when I feel short of breath or just like I'm not getting enough air.
Also I do have acid reflux. I was in omeperzol then the doc changed me to nexium and to take one extra pill and I thought it was working but now I have now clue. So I'm trying to go without it for a couple days just to see if I stay the same or what not. Plus I do not like the side affects that I read that taking Ppis can cause
I want to believe my doctor but it's hard to believe because of everything that I feel but my tests always come back fine, and I try to find comfort in the good news that everything came back fine but I only feel a moment of relief then once that pain comes back all the negatives thoughts come back.
So anyway, just a few days ago I was having some pretty bad chest pain where I couldn't lay in anyway without hurting and the pain ranges from sharp to dull/achy/ stabbing feeling. Sometimes when I push on my chest it hurts but sometimes it doesn't. I wanted to go back to the hospital to get checked out for reassurance but ice racked up lots of medical debt that I'm trying to trust in the docs diagnoses so I didn't go and it went away and I fell asleep. But it hadn't ever gotten that bad before so idk of I should've just gone. The last time I went was back in January.
I guess I'm looking for any kind of reassurance.
