Terrible Pain: I am, unfortunately, the bearer of bad news. When ever one has 'terrible' pain there is little to offer online. I feel that the patient needs urgent in -person medical evaluation and treatment. There are several significant illnesses these symptoms could represent from the worst being heart problems to gerd or peptic ulcer disease, to infection and or ulceration of the esophagus.
