Chest pain and shortness of breath?
Alcohol and smoking history?
Are you taking any other medications?
Bloating and flatulence?
Stress and anxiety issues?
No heartburn (although I take prevacid daily)
I did have a little pain in the center of my chest, but more so in my actual breasts.
No diarrhea per say...but it helped when I went to the bathroom (which I normally don't do in the middle of the night).
I do not smoke or drink.
My neck is a little stiff, I've had some tension lately and just with not sleeping it doesn't help.
No bloating or flatuence - I drank at least 80oz of water yesterday.
Stress/Anxiety - yes, always, I take fioricet as needed for tension headaches, and I did take one yesterday around 5pm. I also take xanax on a very as needed basis, which is usually only 1 pill every few months.
I'm currently on bactrim for a sinus infection too.
Hello,Thanks for providing more information.
As you describe sharp pain in upper abdomen,breasts shouldn't be ignored and can be caused due to possible causes like Gastroesophageal reflux disease,Costochondritis,Postcholecystectomy syndrome(presence of abdominal symptoms after surgical removal of the gallbladder in which increased bile flow) resulting in indigestion, bloating associated with pain in upper right abdomen.
Even as you have tendonitis in shoulder and if you lay down on it so it may be possible that it can aggravate pain in shoulder and also cause referral pain in chest however pain should be radiated to right side of chest only.
You should avoid late night eating and work.
Take OTC Metamucil and eat fat free diet.
You should discuss your symptoms with your regular doctor so make an appointment with your doctor.
If pain is severe again then visit ER.
I hope I've provided the information you were seeking. If you are happy with my service, please provide a rating. If not, please let me know so l can continue to help you. Thank you.
Is there any specific tests that can be done to determine what it is. I have to say, I've never experienced this pain til after the gallbladder attack pain. If I did, I don't remember.
I'm on an 80% clean eating diet and I exercise, so that is a plus. I barely eat late at night, usually dinner and that is it.
Could it be stress related?
I was thinking of going to the ER but I knew it would shortly pass. And when I did go to the ER before my surgery, tests/xrays showed nothing.
Thanks for the follow-up.
You need to undergo Chest X-ray,EKG,Upper GI scopy,Liver function test for further evaluation.
You should continue to take Motrin if you feel relief.
And it's good to make an appointment with your doctor for a clinical examination in next few days.
Do deep breathing exercises and meditation to relieve stress and anxiety.
Elevate your head side of bed while lying down.
