Do how do i stop hicuping i cant do it anymore
How long has it been going on and have you tried drinking something?
ten minutes maybe more , i cant drink i choke i am scared
These are actually hiccups?
yes and on top i burp and and it burns and very sour
r u there
Sorry for the delay. So what are you doing right now besides on the computer?
ok doc stopped hiccuping but chest feels heavy and have burning in my throat. its not a heart is it. we also hvae been under the weather , plus my sone has a hand feet and throat disease so he hS been home. i am in bed watching tv and talking to u . kids r asleep huppy helping somone with computer issues
OK--usually hiccups do stop and they aren't indicative of anything serious like your heart. Did you ever start taking the Prilosec?
no i havent started i know i know. what rnthe hiccups indicative of. and thisntime was strange hiccups and burping at the same time was really uncomfortable
So you would hiccup, say, every few seconds and then sometimes burp?
i would hiccup and burp at the samd time and then i would hiccup and have also very sour burp. now u worry me
Why am I worrying you? Just asking for some information?
ok i gave u info. also my throat and chest burn now , no kore hiccups. u know just went on facebook one of my friend wrote that today she is in the jazz club tom she is going to see aplay and she writes life is good, and me wjat i do panick, burning, sob.
This is a real friend or just one on Facebook?
we talk on the phone once a month she is the wife of my husbands friend
OK--the hiccups are from the reflux and nothing more than that. This is still not your heart and nothing to worry about. And, please, just start taking the Prilosec--at least you can do that.
hello doc i have a quesstion since u know i do try to eat more healthy but it doesnt work my way, i eat chinese once a week and some sweets. so i eat bad and then panick. i finnally made an appt on octopber 12 to see my doc do lipids , ekg, and talk meds. u think my heart can wait till then. lol
What's wrong with Chinese?
haha well i know it has lots of sodium which is bad. and why when i eat my hr goes fast and i start taking deep breathes
But the heart thing happens not only when you eat salty food, right?
yes i know salty , fried, sweets. omg will i die now. i am pretty young . 33, i dont eat fried
But for the most part it sounded as though you eat fairly healthy
well i try, but the sweets i cant give up . i also try not to eat after 5 . only fruits.what can u tell me doc, need some advice
Advice about what?
my heart lol
Yes but what exactly besides what I've told you before?
well i dont know i guess if i have been eating not very healthy on and off for the past 2 years is that enough to cause bad damagealso my throat has bee hurting badly for the past 3 day , my son has hands foot and mouth disease can i have it too
No to your getting your son's disease. No to your unhealthy eating causing heart damage.
ok but my throat still hurts , and i feel ache what do i do
What do you mean?
i dont want to get sick all the way , so far i have sore throat, and feeling ache, we r going to philly on saturday i want to feel better
OK--take some extra vitamin C and B complex and some zinc supplements.
doc have a q , my daughterbwas put on antibioticks for infection, and i missed a day yesterdah can i continue today,or it will ,akemit worse
No--you can just continue it today
hello , well we went to philly yesterday and when we were in the car i was feelin g like someone was sitting on my chest and every time i would take a breath i felt pain in the upoper back well today is the same thing. please help, as u can see i am trying to distruct myself but it doesnt work
OK--so what exactly is going on right now?
i feel pressure on my chest. my back hurts especially when i try to arch it, and i burp not alot but i do. i just feel very sad and sorry for myself that i can live a normal life and at the same time i cant
OK--again, not your heart. Did you ever start the Prilosec?
no, i am going to a doctor for a phisical on oct 12 if i wont die till then and let her prescribe it. why u thing heaqviness in my chest not a heart. i feel sleepy tired. i need to do grocery shopping qand i am scared
Just a heavy feeling like it's tight and you can't get it to expand fully if you take a deep breath?
i feel its heavy and when i take a deep breath my back starts to hurt
Still not your heart--that just isn't a symptom of heart pain.
so what u think it is. i keep taking a deep breath and its not enough. i am depressed about it
It's anxiety and a problem with your back--we've talked about a possible disk problem in your back. I know all this bothers you but you have to understand that you aren't going to die and there isn't anything deadly going on with you.
u know i am a mo, wife , i work now i think i live a fair life its like someone cursed me , i am inconstant pain,
How's work going, by the way?
its going ok, i am around people. i also have a pain that from above left breast shooting to my back and its left.
Let's stay away from the physical part for now--you aren't going to die. So do you like work and does it feel good to have a job?
i feel good when i talk to people. when they smile to me. when i feel i am not in pain
So you're interacting with people and doing well with that?
yes , but i am not saying i dont hae anxiety or panick i do almost all the time but i know since i am at work i have no choice but work
Very good--you're doing well and it will get better. You just need to stay with it and learn that interacting is fun and healthy and you can do it without coming down with a major anxiety attack.
what about pain, i am not making pain and heaviness
What do you want me to tell you--it isn't your heart and your aren't going to die.
what to do not to have it
Not sure what you mean
what to not to have these constant left sided pains, and chest pressure. but u know my late grandma used to say if u wake up and nothing hurts u r dead
I can't do more than tell you what I've told you before--I'm not your doctor. The back pains and the chest pains could be from a disk problem in your back and an MRI of the thoracic spine would look for that.
so do i need echo ekg again
No not if you're asking me, I wouldn't give you another EKG
and what ur decision for hat would be
I'd just do a routine EKG on you ever year. But again, I can't be your doctor.
well doc i commununicate with u every day for more than a year or longer so u r my doc lol
OK--but I can only give you my thoughts. Time to close this page with a rating--OK?
