Chest pressure and Breathing Difficulty
My chest is very tight as if there’s a belt fastened around my chest. It feels heavy sometimes and also I usually feel esophageal spasm; a contraction in my oesophagus. I do feel this choking sensation around my neck as if my throat is tight and closing up.
It’s just as if something is stuck in my throat, whenever I feel that, my chest gets tight and heavy which makes it difficult for me to breathe. It’s also causing head pressure for me. And whenever I’m feeling the chest pressure, I can’t sit straight because it hurts. I belch, I feel nauseous all the time.
The doctor I visited said it’s hyperacidity and I did a test for h- pylori, the test came out positive. The doctor said since I tested positive for h-pylori bacteria, it could be possible that there is ulcer and it could also be possible that there’s no ulcer. After the test I was prescribed some drugs ; Omeprazole, Amoxicillin and Clarithromycin. Clarithromycin gave me bad side effects and the doctor told me to stop taking Clarithromycin. I continued taking Omeprazole with Amoxicillin and Gascol.
Few days later, I started having difficulty in breathing as if I wanted to pass out due to the chest tightness. I was given a steroid injection. I became stabilized a few hours later.
The difficulty in breathing is fleeting ( It comes and goes).
I went back to the doctor and I did a full blood count test,
(my red blood cells showed Ansiocytosis+).
The doctor prescribed SALBUTAMOL, CIMETIDINE, FEXOFENADINE, FERROLAB-12 (These are the drugs am currently taking).
Woke up this morning and my chest was tight, I was finding it difficult to breath. When I inhale deeply, it hurts and sometimes when I’m trying to speak, I gasp for air. ECG and Chest X-ray test came out fine. It’s so annoying to be honest cos I don’t know what could be the problem.
I would like to get a second opinion. Thank you so much🙏🏻
