I currently take Advair and Singulair for asthma. I am having bad chest pain. I have been to the doctor and they are treating me for GERD. I just started taking Kapidex for it because Prevacid didnt work. So I want to know if the chest pain is from asthma or GERD or both? No one can seem to tell me?. I'm really tired of my chest hurting.
That sounds like a question best answered by your physician. Asthma does not normally cause chest tightness unless you are using your "excessory muscles" to breathe. These are muscles you only use when you are having trouble breating. They hurt the same reason your muscles hurt after a good workout, because they haven't been used in a while. So, whether it's this, or gerd is difficult for me to know over the Internet. Assuming your doctor decided you're healthy enough to be sent on your way home, I'd imagine the chest pain is not due to your heart. Which leads to the logical conclusion that it's probably gerd. Although, without being your physician, there's no way of knowing for sure. I wish I could provide you the answer you've been waiting for here, but I believe the best way of resolving your problem here is to continue to work with your physician.
