Here is some background on my problem.
It just started all of the sudden with the feeling of not being quite able to take a deep breath. There was also some indigestion. I went to the ER twice in two days, once being diagnosed with acid reflux and being given some ranitidine..
They also noticed some funny spikes on my EKG's and made me an appointment for a stress test with a cardiologist. They also did a chest x-ray and all was clear.
The stress test came back normal, and even after I went to a GP, he took blood and put it through all kinds of paces, found no high blood sugar, my kidneys were fine...
The second ER doctor I went to diagnosed me with anxiety, which my GP seconded.
I have been taking clonazapam and citelopram on and off since August.
I don't really think it is anxiety or panic attacks because I have never had such a thing in my life before and tried to tell them that the reason I was anxious was because I couldn't get a good, deep breath. I am scheduled to go back to my GP next month, and I think I am going to have him refer me to a good gastrointerologist...Was just wondering if anyone out there has had similar symptoms. I still think it might be acid reflux or a form of it. Anyway, thanks for any and all input...No stomach pain and very little heartburn.
Just a lot of belching and feeling like if I could only throw up and get rid of what is causing it, I would be fine...LOL!
