Several years ago I fell heavily onto my chest. My sternum was bruised but consultation with the doctor consisted of, 'does that hurt?' and my reply, 'Ouch!'
A while later I had this strange sensation in my chest, reminded me of a portcullis dropping and then it went. The next day, it happened again and this time it stayed. If I ate anything my digestive system didn't like, the sensation, which felt more like a belt, would tighten. Many on the internet appeared to have the same problem but no one had found an answer.
Over time I had to stop eating fruit, except bananas, dairy, potatoes,anything spicy and limit my sugar and salt intake. I had a number of blood tests, all of which found nothing. I have however been diagnosed with COPD, although since the test have found that it was apparently administered incorrectly??
Over the months certain things have changed. I have the band permanently but also react to foods with a burning in my back. I also get very hot at times. I have no pain just uncomfortable sensations and at times difficulty in breathing, worsened oddly enough by sitting on a recliner. What is even more odd is that when I lie down it all goes!
If anyone recognizes any of the above I would be eternally grateful for your input.
