I have heartburn, difficulty/painful swallowing, feels like there's something stuck in my throat, chest pain/tightness and a cough. What could it be?

I have heartburn, difficulty/painful swallowing, feels like there's something stuck in my throat, chest pain/tightness and a cough. What could it be?

Globus sensation?: Sounds like you experience the feeling of a ball or lump in the back of your throat that you have to swallow past? If so, this is "globus." alternatively, you may have laryngo-esophaeal reflux without heartburn. Sometimes, the actual swallowing mechanism may be impaired due to "spasms" or dysmotility. A gastroenterologist or ear-nose-throat specialist is a good starting point for evaluation. ...Read more

For instance, pericarditis could cause pain with forceful or irregular heart beat. Because of your age, an unusual presentation of angina also needs to be considered, even though your spells are brief. ...Read more

Probably.....: If you have no fever, you likely have acute bronchitis due to a viral infection. Coughing into your elbow will help prevent spread of infection while the bronchitis runs its course in about 7-10 days. Another possible etiology is bronchospasm. If your cough is not improving, or if you develop shortness of breath, see your doctor for diagnosis and treatment. Smoking cessation is also needed. ...Read more

Dealing with arm pain and chest pain for the past 3 days. I have been breathing pretty fast which makes everything more painful too. What is wrong?

See your doctor: Could be a problem with skin, nerves, muscle, shoulder, lung, heart, or stomach. See your doctor for a more thorough history, physical exam and further evaluation. If you sleep on your stomach you could have a neck strain that radiates pain to the chest or arm. Get checked out just to make sure. ...Read more
