I have got a very tight chest and pain on breathing,  went to a&e last night who told me it wasn't heart problems any ideas what it may be?

GERD: If you truly have GERD, then you can try some conservative measures to see if the symptoms improve-try not to eat within 2-3 h of going to bed, elevate your bed or head approx 30 degrees, avoid spicey foods or those that cause you to have gas.

Asthma attack led to ER visit. Given breathing treatment and two steroids. Medrol (methylprednisolone) pack for home. My heart rate is 100, is that ok?

Asthma attack led to ER visit. Given breathing treatment and two steroids. Medrol (methylprednisolone) pack for home. My heart rate is 100, is that ok?

No: Although high-dose Medrol can increase your heart rate, use of bronchodilator or uncontrolled asthma may be another cause. I noted that you are on Toprol (metoprolol) which may render your asthma more difficult to control and you should discuss this with your doctor preferably a B/C allergist. ...Read more
