Hello Everyone! I am new to this forum - I found you through the Thyroid Uk forum, where the people there almost literally saved my life with their knowledge and support.
I think I may have a hiatus hernia. I am 64, have recently lost 34 pounds in weight, I think mainly because I got my thyroid sorted out - weight has bugged me all my life. I haven't had an appetite for years, and three spoonsful of food and I can't eat any more, and that has been the case for several years.
I was carted off to A&E a few weeks ago with a suspected heart attack, but fortunately all was well. I keep getting this pain around my heart - I realised it was probably heartburn, took the rennies but that didn't make any difference at all - tried lemon juice, trawled the net etc. I am getting pain down both arms and at the back of my neck, and a gnawing burning sensation in my stomach and behind my breastbone, belching makes no difference. Can anyone give me any advice?
(Yes I know go and see a doctor, but that is not that easy for me to do that)
