I have been having weird stomach pains and the best I can describe them as are bad hunger pains. I also feel the need to clear my throat constantly throughout the day. Sometimes I force cough to get mucas out of my chest and it's mostly clear. For the most part it is bad in the mornings. At least once a week I will wake up in the morning feeling like a heaviness in my chest area. It makes me feel almost like I am short of breath but I am not. Most of the time if I exercise it will go away at least for most of the day. All of this will cause some anxiety of course but I try to focus on other things and it helps a little. I had heart tests done because of a prior issue and they all came back normal, spirometer test and it was normal so no asthma or COPD, sonogram of my liver, kidneys etc and that came back normal. I was diagnosed with silent reflux 3 years ago and I am wondering if it could be this just getting worse? I should be on a proton pump inhibitor but I never took it and I should be on a prescription antacid but like an idiot I never took either one. I am scheduled to take a endoscopy test later this month but really do not want to take it. The though of having a tube run down my throat and into my stomach is not so appealing. Reflux or something else? Anyone have this issue and if so what could it be? Thanks
