bit of background
I suffer GORD, was severe but about 8 years ago had a nissan fundiloplication (sic) which cured my major heartburn, only now get the odd breakthrough. I do have slight scarring in the oesopaghagus which does cause foods to feel lodged occaisionally, so i have to drink with foods to 'get the food down'.
A year ago, I developed chest pain and got 999'd to hospital... non cardiac. Have since had 2 more trips to hospital with chest pain and severeal gp visits. Told poss spasms and have been started on Omeprazole and ranitadine. Usually the pains stop after a while, but was getting them everyday, sometimes many times a day, this last episode started a week ago, and there has been pretty much no let up. But I am breathless with it. Its like my lungs are not expanding, or the breath sticks, around the same place that food does. Im currently signed off work sick, I literally cant get my breath when talking, a main part of my job. Is this a normal symptom?
I have to see a gastro specialist in April for another issue, and have been told by my gp to tell them about this as well...
Oh im a 38year old female in the UK
