My doctor thinks I have acid reflux and esophagitis... But I'm not so sure. I've been put on omeprazole for the moment. My symptoms aren't too terrible, they consist of:
1. Excessive burping, that sometimes causes shortness of breath from the gas stuck in my chest/throat. Once I burp it out I'm fine!
2. Sometimes middle chest pain - it feels stabbing for 1-2 seconds. Mostly happens when I'm eating. I've been laying off spicy food.
3. Sometimes I'll have left chest pain for a couple of seconds also. Feels similar to the middle chest pain or feels stretching. I know this isn't heart related though because I have inappropriate sinus tachycardia and I've done an echocardiogram stress test that shows my heart is in fine condition.
4. I've only really felt heartburn once, which lasted for like three seconds under my left breast.
Does anyone have input about these symptoms? I have to go back to the doctor soon because he gave me the omeprazole for a month and it's almost out and my symptoms have relatively been the same. I'm also a relatively healthy person, 24 years old.
