    Do you have any information on chronic chest pain/pressure in middle of chest in relation to GP? Always there, worse after I eat. All heart/lung test are ok. Thank you…


    • The chest pain smack dab in the middle of my chest, between the breast bones had sent me to the minor emergency. I had the pain for months on and off, but gave in as I didn’t know what else to do for it. My PC Dr was having me take PPIs (for GERD) and it didn’t help. The Drs ran countless tests (so were the bills) and nothing came up. Their last idea to get me out the door was to double the current PPI I as on. No, it didn’t help. Later my Dr tripled the amount and still nothing (except for now I was having issues in the bathroom). She tried me on the latest PPI with samples and it helped! But, when it was time to fill my script, my insurance company would not cover it :/ And I was not about to pay the $1,000 they wanted for 30 pills. Now, as long as I avoid ginger tea (I can have the capsules – helps nausea for me), tomato sauce, orange juice and other highly acidic foods/drinks I don’t have the pain very often. The pressure is here a lot of the time, but there hasn’t been any damage per the last scope. So, maybe look at your diet and check out the GERD info we have in here. Other than that, I really don’t know. I know a lot of us GPer’s complain about that pain as well, but nobody seems to know the true cause.
