The body normally makes significant pleural fluid each day. It is produced on the parietal pleura (chestwall) side and absorbed or drains through the visceral pleura (lung lining) into the lymph vessels of the lung. The chest tube drains some of this fluid before it is absorbed. It can be mildly blood tinged so it can be kool-aid colored.

Your doctor may refer you to a gastroenterologist, or send you for some imaging studies first. Good luck. ...Read more

Hi: If liquids pass you probably do not have a blockage as they would come back up too. You might have irritated your lower esophagus. Liquid antacids might be the best to try at first and dose four times a day. You might need to treat up to two weeks and Zantac (ranitidine) OTC would be easier. If your symptoms have been there longer then you need to seek further evaluation and treatment and possibly a scope. ...Read more

I'm having some trouble with constipation and chest discomfort. I keep burping after drinking any liquid and the discomfort goes but comes back again?
Support Stomach.: This is most likely due to a deficiency in stomach acid and/or small intestine enzymes. Try using a digestive enzyme (incl., betaine) with meals. Take bicarbonate (sodium bicarbonate) 30 minutes after meals. Supplement with a high quality, high potency acidophilus as it is needed for lower intestine digestion and helps constipation. Use homeopathic "upset stomach" (nux + carbo) sublingual every 5 minutes for symptoms. ...Read more
