I am not new to this site but I am new to this forum. Pleased to meet you all. I'm stuck with a bit of a problem. Over 6 months ago I started feeling some burning pressure on the chest, was releasing a lot of gas and burping like crazy. Even had bad stomach pains that would last for hours. Had constipation as well. After of two weeks of this crazy behaviour I visited my GP and was told that I had acid reflux. Understanding the problem as I did I then worked at getting better by exercising and changing my hi carb diet to a healthier low carb diet. I drank more water and cut out sodas and coffee and tea. This helped for a while but then my breathing became a problem and I started to get pains in my face, especially around my jaw and in my shoulders. Thinking that I may have a heart problem or a gallbladder problem I went back to hospital and had both tested. Both tests came out negative and according to doctors I am fairly healthy. Yet the pains in my right shoulder and jaw is still there and I still do at times have trouble breathing from my right lung. I've never had heart problems before and as far as doctors can tell I'm keeping my acid reflux well under control. Even lost a good 23 kgs in the last 6 months. Help me our here. Should I be worried that I'm still getting jaw and shoulder pain even after the doctors told me that everything is ok? By the way I don't get chest pains although initially I did and my stomach pains are also gone.
