For the past two years I have had chest pains, throat discomfort, hoarseness, feeling that I must concentrate on my breathing, feeling off balance (that's when I am walking it feels like if I don't hold something I may fall down eventhough i have never fallen), sweating, BP going up, some kind of sensation in my nerves (as if I am getting stroke eventhough I have not had one before, it is just my mind telling me that), weakness in my legs sometimes, pain radiating to my back, itching/sensation in ear
I always wake up in the middle of the night and that's it i can't sleep again! I have done ECG, cardiac enzyme test, CT Scan, MRI, Barium Meal Test and they all came out fine.
I don't experience any pain in my stomach or throat when i swallow food. There is no blood in my stool. I cough in the middle of the night sometimes but with no phlegm.
Sometimes I get a heavy white saliva from my throat. I also get one nose block all the time in the morning!
I have been on Nexium on and off. I have stopped taking all the known triggers of acid reflux.
My question is am I a typical candidate of acid reflux? I have gone to the emergency unit on numerous occasions and all the time, ECG, cardiac enzyme test will be conducted but the results will say not your heart. My GP thinks I am overly worried.
I want to know if this is really acid reflux or my heart? It is the heart attack I am overly worried about.
If it is reflux I will learn to live with it.
Has anyone experienced this or I am alone.
I am a worried man!
