So. For the last 4 months I have had ongoing chest pains every day without a break.
To start at the beginning, I went out one night with work and got quite drunk. This resulted in me being very sick. The next day I started experience chest pain which I put down to a hangover. However, this didn't go away and started to bother me quite a lot. I ended up in A&E who did an ECG and told me I was fine and to see my docs.
This started several visits and testings including more ECGs, a Stress ECG, numerous blood tests and lots of prodding and poking.
Since these came back clean, the doc thinks it could be GERD Related and I'm on PPIs. No change. Now it hurts when I breathe.
So, cue another trip to A&E and a great doctor who went through everything. I have nothing serious, I am not going to die (yet) but they can't find the problem. I am now referred to the Chest Clinic at hospital and am awaiting an appointment. I am also awaiting an Endoscopy to check for GERD.
There is no pattern to this pain. It doesn't change when I eat or drink. I can not eat all day and it will come on suddenly and cause me severe anxiety.
I was on a course of penicillin a few months ago for another issue but had no side effects. Everything seems to have gone wrong since then.
Any suggestions are appreciated. I want to know what it is, or is it just in my head...
