My chest has been internally in pain for like last two weeks. When I eat something, it feel like that it lays on heavy on my chest because the chest feels so heavy all the time. It starts from the middle of the breast and ends near the upper stomach area and also the same place in my back. It feels so conjested and heavy from the chest when I breathe. Please tell me what is wrong with me and what should I to reduce the pain.

This is an area where it could be many things..Main thing is get to your PCP..

It could be gastritis-stomach inflammtion, ulcer,GERD-acid from stomach moves up into the esophagus,could even be gallbladder acting up or the liver..

Again--safe than sorry go see your PCP..Get an appt. set..Since it has been two weeks it might not be anything serious or immediate danger-just the same when you hurt you hurt..Have you tried OTC antiacids to see if it will help?

I guess I am stressing seeing the PCP because only a doctor who sees you can really tell what is going on..k

I went to the emergency room and got done my x-rays, blood work. The doctor said everything is looking fine in the report. They said it could be either acid reflux or peptic ulcer so they told me to get a test done for peptic ulcer through PCD. Today, I went to my PCD and she said she is also very highly suspicious of peptic ulcer so she perscribed me some medicine. I told her that it's more my chest and breasts that's hurting than my stomach. So, she went and did my breast examind but she found nothing and said they feel fine.
She told me to come back in three weeks if it's not any better. I took the first dose today.. let's hope for the best.
