Wow -- very painful: It sounds like you're really feeling miserable, and have been for a long time. It's not usual for a 4-year old to set herself on fire. I'm wondering what you're dealing with inside -- and suggest you consider working with a psychologist. ...Read more

I get tingly, fire like pains in the middle of my chest from time to time that last anywhere from a few seconds to a minute or two. Heart issue?

Chest pain: At 19 this would unlikely be a cardiac problem unless you are taking Cocaine or some other type of similar substance. Given your acid reflux I would lean that may be causing your symptoms. Any neck or back problems? That can refer to the chest and would be a possible cause for "fire like" pain. ...Read more

Dry coughing fr about 2wks and when I cough really hard for about 10-15sec I think I taste blood in my throat & my chest feel like on fire what's wrng?

Bronchitis: There are a number of reasons that you could still be coughing after two weeks and from all the coughing you may have some bleeding from some small blood vessels that have broken. Some bacteria can also give a metallic taste and you may now have a secondary bacterial infection causing your cough. I think it may be time to see your physician to get a better answer and treatment. ...Read more

My 11 year old son says he has indigestion/heart burn. Says his heart/chest feels like its on fire?  Help please!

Calcium carbonate.: Try giving him some oral antacids, such as Tums or rolaids. These contain calcium carbonate, which neutralizes the hydrochloric acid made by the stomach. Do not exceed the recommended dose on the package of whatever you choose. If this is frequent, a pediatrician should evaluate your son for more serious digestive problems, which would require more extensive treatment. ...Read more

If it's heartburn...: If it's heartburn, one can try antacids like maalox, mylanta, or tums. There are also acid-blocking medications like Pepcid (famotidine) otc. But, such symptoms may be other things instead of simple reflux. The patient could have esophagitis, stomach cancer, h pylori infection, heart disease, etc... So, it's best to have a doctor evaluate, and if it's still heartburn, the doctor can prescribe acid blockers. ...Read more

Try antacid: Try an antacid. Liquid antacid works faster than pills. This is exactly the situation for which antacids are made. The medicine you already took will kick in later.
Try to swallow less air if possible. You made need gas-x or perhaps a good burp.
Hope you feel better soon. ...Read more

What else can I do to take the pain away from a hiatus hernia? I always feel lile my chest and throat is on fire.

Acid Reflux: The sensation of "fire" is due to acid reflux with or without the hernia. To improve that sensation, take anti-reflux or antacid medications many of which are OTC. Obesity, nicotine, caffeine, alcohol, chocolate, grease, mint etc. make the reflux worse. Make sure you have an actual confirmed medical diagnosis of hiatal hernia and acid reflux before you start treatment. ...Read more

I received 20mg of Depo medrol ultrasound injection. My question is if my nerve was injected to the median nerve and caused damage would it effect both sides and chest? I've had bulging veins burning pain on fire red when actively using my hands.

I received 20mg of Depo medrol ultrasound injection. My question is if my nerve was injected to the median nerve and caused damage would it effect both sides and chest?  I've had bulging veins burning pain on fire red when actively using my hands.

No: No, the median nerve supplies the thumb, index, and middle fingers; so even extreme damage to the median nerve would not directly affect the chest. But is possible you had more of a systemic reaction to the steroids you were given, although there are other potential causes as well. I would discuss the specifics of your case with your doctor. ...Read more
