A year ago I started having sudden onset nausea. If i could sneeze it would immediately go away. Now one year later my symptoms have increased to the point of trips to the emergency room. I have lost 25 lbs, I suffer from constant belching, I have constant chest pressure and at times sharp pain in what feels like my heart. I oten have heart palpitations. I sometimes have a constricted feeling in my throat and a tingling sensation in my lower face and jaw. Occasionally I have blood in toliet after a bowel movement. I have trouble sleeping because of symptoms. My family are having a hard time believing me because my symptoms are all over the place. I am very depressed and unable to perform the simplest of task
I have a appointment with a gastroendinoligist this afternoon. I also have no health insurance. I m scarrd
I do not want to live like this anymore. Any advice on what to say or ask doctor. Please help i do not think i
can live one more day like this. Thanks for taking the time to read this, Laura

I am so sorry you are feeling so badly. It is very scary when you have these symptoms and you don't know what is going on. It is compounded by the worry about the cost of accessing care.

Be sure to make a written list of all your symptoms, maybe even print one for the doctor. It is easy to forget details that might be important for the doc to know.

So many things could be going on. I would worry especially about the feeling of pain near your heart, you definitely need a doctor to help you sort these things out...

Please do let us know how things go with the doctor, and let us know what tests he is doing. It is impossible for anyone to offer ideas at this point because there is no hard information to work with and most of us are not medical professionals. We can help interpret tests and share our experiences.

There are many, many people here who have been in that moment of having terrible symptoms, not knowing what is going on, and being very frightened. They are a wonderful support and I hope some of them will drop in here soon.

Hang in there, and stay in touch! Welcome, by the way!

I second what beachbirdie said, and while it may be too late for your dr's appointment, I'd also want to ask if you've noticed whether the symptoms are worse after eating any particular foods? It may be gluten, but it may also be something else like msg or soy or sulfites or artificial flavors (or some combination of those!).

Hopefully you get some answers from the Dr.
