I have pain in my chest all the time, if I hold my nose it

Customer Question

Hi, I have pain in my chest all the time, if I hold my nose it would feel like I am choking! I have had an endoscopy and everything fine but I struggle to swallow food, I have acid, I am sick a lot because food not going down and my specialist has left me hanging since September. My endoscopy came out absolutely fine! He has told me that he will do lots of tests taking photos inside me of when I eat etc. but nothing since September. My chest pain is getting worse and it feels so sore like I can just feel an abscess that needs antibiotics to make it all good again -= sorry that sounds weird but that is how I feel!! I am now asking myself if I should get my heart checked but deep inside I know it is not that. I am also struggling just to breath in and out without pain but I just know it is not asthma. Help!

I have been taken off tablets as endoscopy showed no problems. It seems to be in throat and breast bone and just getting to end of tether.
Expert:  Dr. David replied 16 days ago.

you still are unwilling to answer my questions.

do you have severe anxiety symptoms?

severe anxiety symptoms can cause chest pressure, chest pain symptoms

Customer: replied 11 days ago.
No I don't think I have anxiety.
Customer: replied 11 days ago.
Unless I have it without realising.
Expert:  Dr. David replied 11 days ago.

an endoscopy doesn't show esophageal strictures.

you need a barium swallow study to look for areas of narrowing and strictures in your esophagus which can cause food to be blocked.

what are you eating?

have you tried stomach acid lowering agents?
