Hello everyone,
So ive been on the cambridge diet for a while now done well lost quite a bit of weight. so ive got what feels like air bubbles running up my left side near my heart and a bit lower??? ive also got constipation at the minute i used to get the bubbles before the diet every now and again but would go straight away. ive had this these all week. i do drink a lot of carbonated water so i thoought it was that so i stopped but its still here. im pretty sure its nothing to do with my heart cause im still here lol but i when its near my heart i start panicking a bit. ive checked my pulse when it happens so its not heart pulpatations. any ideas???

Welcome to ehealthforum,
It is difficult to comment on the cause for the chest discomfort and bubbles sensation that you describe without examining you and going ahead with further evaluation. The extreme diet chances and lifestyle changes can cause major changes in your body leading to varied symptoms. You should consider visiting your doctor for further evaluation to look for the underlying cause. If needed, you can also consider taking opinion from a cardiologist. Treatment as appropriate (based on examination and investigations results) would be started to help you control the symptoms. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle. Practice relaxation techniques for stress relief.
Take care.
