No more- I have a lump feeling in my neck the right side (lower neck). This runs down into my chest, burning and sometimes a sharp pain in my chest. The pain also runs into my ear, jaw and right arm...At night it's worse... I also have a dry cough, in the morning I need to alway blow my nose, blood is alway mixed in.

Not sure what you mean by a lump feeling that runs into your chest--can you explain that some more?

I feel like I have a lump in my throat on the right side but I also have the pain and burning feeling in my chest on the right side. It feels like it's in my lung top part. (right side). I also experience jaw, ear and arm pain.

No....My Doctor said its stress. I feel its more, I know my body and I feel something is wrong...She did a chest x ray only nothing clear!...Hense why I'm here asking you. She just put my on stress meds...Not happy with my Doctor right now...
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
And how long do this symptoms last?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I feel it most of the time...Today and yesterday have been really bad.
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
And it's basically on just one side?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Yes the right side..
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Well, if someone were going to have stress/anxiety symptoms like these, you'd expect it to be bilateral and more diffuse. Have you been checked for reflux or a gall bladder problem?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I have reflux
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I have reflux and on nexium
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
And about the gall bladder?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Have had no tests for gall bladder
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Have had no tests for gall bladder....

What about the cough too!!

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
The cough and some of your symptoms could be still from the reflux that isn't being well treated with the Nexium. That said, the pain you describe could well be from your gall bladder and you might either have gall stones or a poorly functioning gall bladder. I'd send you to a gastroenterologist for evaluation, endoscopy, a gall bladder ultrasound and gastric motility and pH studies. I agree with you this isn't stress.
