I started getting chest pain and short of breath whilst on honeymoon in America 5 weeks ago (just after escaping hurricane Irma). I had also recently been taking erythromycin and also a 'slimatee' sachets pre wedding (I know - stupid).
Had to get emergency care in America, they diagnosed panic attack after ecg and bloods & prescribed lorazepam.felt awful for rest of trip and went straight to a&e on my return, another ecg and blood test and chest X-ray to rule out blood clot. All was fine. Dr seemed to guess it might be oesophagitis as my stomach is tender and my chest pain feels like a heart attack. Went to the Dr's the day after & was prescribed a few days of anti-anxiety pills. Took omeprazole for 2 weeks and stopped, after few days chest pain came back and feeling burpy and short of breath, but also is a stressful time in work and financially. Have gone back on omeprazole but no idea if it's the right thing to do. Going to go back to doctors but I'm predicting they'll say it's just stress. Wondering if anyone has any advice or similar experience?
