    Dear all, 
    I'm currently having weird sensation in my chest area. Once awhile, I felt a gas, or "burble" thump feel in the area from my esophagus connecting my stomach. It is not a flutter, just the "thump " for a one time split second . After that I will have the urge to cough but sometimes doesn't . Sometimes following the feel to burp and sometime doesn.
    And also at times it feels like a sensitive nerve being touch at any point of the esophagus, sending a split electric jolt feel too!!! I went to the doc and was Diagnosed gerd or gastritis. im given medi to help digestion and acid reflux, my digestion did feel better but the above symptoms did not go away!!!  by the way the annoying feel is most felt during the day and seems better at night laying down on bed... i know anxiety might cause this issue, but this issue caused my anxiety...
    I'm sorry I couldn't exactly describe this feel, I'm worried , depressed, and can't carry on my normal life anymore.. Pls help me

    Stanley Tan

    Thank you for your question and welcome to Health Central's Anxiety Community.


    I am not a medical professional and would not be able to give you medical advice.It would also be impossible for me to say whether this is caused by anxiety or a physical problem.


    I would suggest talking further with your doctor and letting him know that this symptom has not been helped by the medication. He would be the best one to help determine if anxiety is causing this.
