Heart Fluttering, Short Of Breath, And Pain In Ribs

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I was recently diagnosed with a blood test. I wanted to see a gastro doctor to confirm it and see if anything else was wrong because I went from just vomiting and loose bowels to being in a great deal of pain. My doctor would not send me. She wanted me to start the diet first. I wrote a letter to my old doctor but he was on vacation for the week so I felt I could not wait for further tests and just started the diet. The vomiting has improved. I am short of breath almost every time I eat though and sometimes in between I have problems getting enough air. This started shortly before my trip to the doctor and has gotten worse. I also have swelling on one side of my neck, it is sore, but not painful. I have been experiencing sharp pains in my ribs and back that have gotten increasingly worse. I don't know what to think. I am hoping to hear back from the doctor today. Could this be my body just kind of detoxing itself? I have never had breathing problems until recently. I feel like I can't fill my lungs. I have only been on the diet for five days. I know it will take a while to feel better but never expected to feel worse. Thanks for any info, advice, or personal experience you can give me. Edit, I forgot to say that I have had fluttering in my throat and chest. I also continue to have dizzy spells that I have experienced for years.

it sounds like u might have a little problem with a small hiatal hernia -

there is a lot of information out there about it but it is treatable in some people, and i recommend the book Hiatal Hernia Syndrome by theodore baroody, even though it's old it has helpful info.

the pain is in the L side of your neck right? i've struggled with the same thing, i hope you feel better soon. the GI doc's weren't that helpful but these 2 things have helped alot

-eliminate all foods that cause a reaction (gas in the stomach will make the lungs heart and diaphragm feel crowded-out)

-go to a good chiropractor who knows the maneuver for hiatal hernia or a good massage therapist that's trained in Myofascial Release and Cranio-sacral therapy, they can help encourage the stomach to heal and move back down into place. this will help you breathe more fully!

Thank you. I know that I have a hiatal hernia. That never occurred to me. I have had it for years though. Perhaps it got worse from the vomiting. It is very uncomfortable. The swelling is on the right side of my neck but the left is a bit sore off and on too, but not swollen. I just can't wait to feel better. Thank you. I will look into that.
