I've been searching for some help with my situation but can't seem to find anyone in a siilar boat.
For the past 5 weeks I've had a burning feeling deep in the centre of my right chest. It feels like it's half-way between my chest and my back. It comes on around 11am and stays all day.
My doctor put me on 60mg of Omeprazole a day as he thought it was heartburn. It did nothing. Nothing at all. It's not the same feeling as indigestion/acid reflux. I've had that when I was pregnant and this is different. It's not food or drink related, it's not worse when I lie down and it's pretty much every single day, all day. The only relief I get is when I'm asleep.
Occasionally I'll get one full day when the burning stops and I feel amazing ... and then the next day, BAM, it's back. It's really getting me down and my doctor just keeps saying I have heartburn but I KNOW it's not that.
Has anyone else experienced something like this?
I do have health anxiety but this has been five weeks of hell and I'm not convinced it's just my anxiety causing this pain.
Thanks in advance.
