So I've been suffering with really bad GERD pains.
My chest was always hurting (Exactly like a Heart attack)
Neck, Back, Jaw, Left arm, Neck and shoulders were all hurting.
And, to top it all off, my Anxiety would al ways go up as i thought i was having a Heart attack.
Went to the hospital about 10-11 times as it was getting worse pain wise.
I have had so many tests done, Bloods, X-rays, Endoscopy, Camera down my throat and up the other way.
All test came back as normal (But was diagnosed with GERD and Esophogus spasms).
So, my Doctor put me on Citolopram (for anxiety), ranitidine (for stomach acid), Emozul (for stomach acid), Zapain (for pain) and Amatriptolyne (for nerves).
I have to take up to 18 tablets a day, But, when i finally got it thru my head that i'm not having a heart attack, I am now a lot calmer.
I for some silly reason got scared of leaving the house incase something happened to me (Don't know how i developed that), but i'm glad to say im over that fear.
Still get my chest, Arms, Neck, Back and Shoulder pains, but the medication has got it controlled a lot more than it was.
So, I'm getting better, and i'm typing this story to tell others how i overcame my fears and how i manage to calm myself down.
