My daughter freezes up when she's touched. It recently came up that she has hapehphobia. Can I get an breif desc. Of that? Can she grow out?

It may represent part of an anxiety disorder, a lack of a sense of connectedness, or a history of having been abused, for example. There is no good way to describe everything that can contribute to haphephobia but I would suggust a psych or nuero eval to start with. ...Read more

If basic cardiac work up is ok, then reflux can be considered. Gerd can cause occasional esophageal spasm, which can mimic cardiac pain. It's usually relieved by swallowing liquid. Again, see your doctor soon. Good luck. ...Read more
