Over the past 3 months I have had several attacks of something that mimics a heart attack. I get the crushing chest pain, nausea, coughing, sweats etc. It's happened about 6 times in last 3 months. I've ended up in casualty 3 times only to be told my heart is fine. Have also had a 24 heart monitor done and that was clear as well so wondering now if this is related to my stomach?
I had an "attack" on Friday and it started off with the chest pain and nausea, few random quick stabbing pains in my chest and back, sweats and coughing. I am on omnaprazole 40mg per day and haven't had heart burn in ages. But I had this attack, went to bed and had difficulty sleep due to symptoms but it also felt like I was swallowing my tongue. Woke up next day and was sick brushing my teeth and seemed to bring up some blood.
Now I had spoke to my GP about this on Friday morning. Asked to get my stomach investigated again. She checked my file and said oh sure u have oesophagitus (news to me as nobody had told me) GERD and a peptic ulcer. They already done the camera down your throat (about 4 years ago) and wouldn't do it again.
I have googled and sounds like I might have a hiatal hernia so am I best going to another GP in the practise and get referred for a check? Does this sound like what it is?
Thanks for any help
