  1. I went to the emergency room sat. At 2 am with excruciating stomach and chest pressure. I also had constant belching and a heart rate of 138. The did mri and chest X-ray and blood work. At first they were all very kind and concerned. After all test came back normal their demeanor changed i asked for another pain injectio Before leaving but they refused. I believe they thought i was there seeking narcotics. I have a appointment at 3:45 today with a gastrointestinal doctor. My symptoms are_ unberable. If i have to live like this much longer i feel like i will die. My family thinks i am exaggerating ora a hypochondriac. I have lost 30 lbs in the last year. I feel as i am wasting away. I can tolerate no food and survive on a diet of a few bites of fruit and yogurt. I am scared and i have no health insurance. I am afraid to tell the doctor everything because it all sounds so crazy Thanks for letting me vent . .

  4. 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 . . . ..
