Hello.. I NEED help.. Please bear with me, this is a little long... 3 weeks ago (on a Monday) I felt sick, I went to my doctor and he diagnosed me with a sinus infection, he proscribed Cipro (my first time ever having Cipro), after a few days I felt better. The fallowing Sunday I woke up with a pain in my chest, I assumed it was a pulled muscle from laughing the week before. By Wednesday it hadn't gotten any better so I got nervous and went to the ER. I was there for 6 hours, I had an EKG, blood work, chest X-Ray and was on a heart monitor. My heart was deemed good, no issues. It seemed to calm me down and I felt a little better. A few days later I felt like I had acid reflux, again I went to my doctor, he prescribed me Pantoprazole 40mg, the acid reflux seemed to calm down but I was getting a pain directly below my sternum, not a bad pain, more of a discomfort, and also seemed to have a little stomach ache. I then made an appointment with a Gastroenterologist, they couldn't get me in till this week, so I started to do my own research and read a lot of info that I wish I hadn't. By this passed Sunday I had myself so worked up, I didn't feel like eating or doing anything. On Monday morning i told my wife that I couldn't wait till Wednesday and that I wanted to go to the ER again, so we went. Again I had an EKG and bloodwork, both perfect (except my glucose was a little high, 200) and they also gave me an ultrasound because by then I felt a little worse. The ultrasound also came back good, everything was fine. The ER doctor prescribed me Pepcid 20mg. I then called the gastroenterologist to see if he had any cancellations, they did, so I went in. He asked me a bunch of questions asked about my pain and suggested I have an Endoscopy, so I set that up. I had the Endoscopy yesterday. Again, no serious issues were found, no cancer, gall bladder good, no ulcers. He did say that there was very minimal inflammation on the bottom of my esophagus and a little swelling in my stomach, but couldn't give me a diagnosis till the biopsy comes back (a week and a half). I was happy that nothing serious was found. When I got home from the Endoscopy I felt ok, I had lunch and I got a little discomfort it feels like towards the bottom of my esophagus, I also felt a little bloated. Today I feel the same except my chest is bothering me again, I feel like I have a little reflux, I don't feel like eating. I'm a nervous wreck. How is nothing found but I have issues??? I just want to know whats wrong with me. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Mike
