this is is my first post. It's 5.30am and once again I have been woken up by thst burning pain feeling in my chest. I have had Gerd on and off for years, but was always able to manage it.
This week has been a nightmare, I have had pain in my chest, ribs, shoulders and even my neck.
of course I panicked and seen the doctor who assured me trapped wind and acid reflux could cause all these problems. He doubled my dose of Omeprazole, and I felt better for a while.
Now my anxiety has kicked in, I wake up with a burning pain and start to overthink, still worried it's my heart.
i am 45 and beginning to think I am turning into my mother, who had the same condition and was in A and E on a regular basis but was always told it's her stomach.
When I get up and move and drink baking soda and hot water the pain eases. Also the trapped wind shifts, but does anyone find anxiety makes things worse?
