Have not had endoscopy done.
Heart shows a slight arythmia on V3, but its not common or persistant.
Any sweating? Or was it really swearing? Sweating, yes occasionally. Swearing, no.
No swallow or ph.
Nothing else for GERD, as of yet.
I don't have health insurance so alot of this will have to be put on hold for the time being.
Is there anything I can take to relieve some of the pressure on my diaphragm? It's really uncomfortable not being able to breath.
I made a visit to the ER on December 1st. The EKG showed 1 arythmic beat in a 5 minute scan, they felt it may have just been caused by stress. If I sit still and check my pulse, nothing changes and its perfectly fine 55-70bpm depending on movement and activity.
It's been 2 months, with pretty much just the tight chest and shortness of breath. Not gasping for air, just feels tough to breath. I have no acid regurg., heartburn, or other stomach issues.
I'm very active, 165lbs, 6'2". Don't smoke or drink, and never have. No drugs, and I rarely rely on OTC meds (took me a good month to decide to start on the Prevacid treatment). Ran on the cross country team in high school ~15 miles a day up until 3-4 years ago.
Could it be caused simply by a stressful lifestyle? I own my own landscape business and am consistantly under pressure.
Thanks for your advice. Easier said than done on the stress reduction, but I'll give it my best.
