I'm getting kinda worried I'm am quiting smoking so idk if that the cuase as my body going threw transformation... Healing it self. Or maybe just aniexty from all the stress and aniexty over the past two months... Idk just really freaky had a chest x-ray of my lungs and a ekg back in November and blood test all came back normal... So rule that out. This has been on and off.

    Hi Samuel

    i have a similar chest pain which is worse when I wake in the morning but most times gets better as the day progresses. I have been diagnosed with reflux and refuse to take ppi’s for a variety of reasons.

    i have seen my pcp, a gastroenterologist, a cardiologist, a puliminologist, and two surgeons and none of them can explain the chest pain although the gastroenterologist says many people with reflux suffer the same complaint. Next stop is a neurologist.

      Hey Frank have u ever heard of costacondritise.. I think that my problem cuz yes I do have a swallowing problem which may be from reflux or silent reflux and not doing anything about eating hot Cheetos and things. But my pain I get is def not my esphogoues.. I just feel it in my ribs more then anything which is def not what all other people explain there pain.. I never get burning up to my throat or my chest.. I don't feel the food stick pain. At all. Just very different from reflux.. so idk I'ma get to the bottom of this one way or another lol

      Mines get 80-90% better when I lay back or sleep which also contradicts reflux symtoms. My GI said it was not related to reflux after doing an endoscopy so I have to believe the back is the origin of the problem but reflux could be the reason for what appears to be silent reflux (nasal breathing problems) and anxiety just makes it worse. . ;-(((

    Same here Samuel, the pain is 24/7 but mines is 80% better when I lay back or sleep.  I also saw a rheumatilogist which said is not inflammation so right now I have no asnwer. It also feel the back like is connected so I believe in my case is my case and it affects my chest and ribs. I also have breathingproblem but I'm coming to the conclution when the pain gets bad then anxiety kicks in creating the breathing problem.  I did take medication for anxiety ( 2 1.2 years of benzos) but it did nothing for the pain so I stopped.   Please keep me posted and I'll do the same.
