?musculoskeletal: Chest pain in a 22 yo is rarely causec by heart problems ; the normal ekg's suggest your heart is fine. Reflux or anxiety can cause chest pain that is usually squeezing or a pressure/tightness. Sharp stabbing pain makes me suspect a musculoskeletal cause. Consider seeing an osteopath who does manipulation or a good chiropractor- see http://bit.Ly/1kgd0xp acupuncture or homeopathy may also help. ...Read more

Can gas get stuck in your esophagus and cause it to expand and cause chest pain? Or is this acid reflux all test done on heart & nothing is wrong.

Absolutely: food and air can get stuck going down esophagus, and cause a severe chest pain that is relieved by burping or swallowing something. Also reflux of stomach acid into esophagus can cause a burning chest pain that is usually relieved with antacids. Esophageal spasm causes severe chest pain, it is usually provoked by severe reflux.

Yelling or speaking fast and loud cause coughing could this be a symptom of acid reflux? Also chest pain and a wierd stomach burn especially when hungry

Yelling or speaking fast and loud cause coughing could this be a symptom of acid reflux? Also chest pain and a wierd stomach burn especially when hungry

I think: "yelling or speaking fast/loud" could precipitate throat irritation and a cough; there's nothing about that that would suggest acid reflux. However, the second set of symptoms...chest pain and "weird stomach burn" could definitely be related to reflux. Would be ok to restrict acid foods (fried food, alcohol, high fat meat/dairy products, caffeine) and try OTC anti-acids for 7-10 days. Then to Doc! ...Read more

If my chest pain, nape pain, stomach ache and bitter taste responded to Mefracid, does this mean that the cause of my chest pain is acid reflux?

If my chest pain, nape pain, stomach ache and bitter taste responded to Mefracid, does this mean that the cause of my chest pain is acid reflux?

Probably but not alw: Just pain is very misleading symptom and don't assume that it is nothing to worry about I have seen cases where the pain is typical for reflux and it turns out to be cardiac. If you have risk factors for heart disease like high blood pressure smoking diabetes high cholesterol and you have family history of premature heart disease then you should see your doctor ...Read more
