Hi !!

just want some discussion with you !

this is what happens to me:

I m 22 years old and for the pass 7 months I am getting chest pains on regular basis feeling everyday like having something wrong to me. On two occasions I ran to emergency room. Because of this freagging pain I have panic attack and anxiety daily .it seems really hard sometimes.
I went to a med specialist he diagnosed me with dyspepsia then GERD and gave me pantoprazole ... i had plenty of ECGs, every time they were normal but the pain never seems to stop. happens every day. Cannot understand why it is so severe and what is the core problem. Is it GERD/Heart burn, Gall stone, any thing else,

Pain is accompanied by gas, bloated stomach, irritable bowl movement in intervals, pain in left armpit and shoulder, neck pain. and whole lot of anxiety which is really freaking me out.
Sometimes I feel like I have needles in my chest. I really want to know what is wrong and what is the problem.

So the point of all this is I have become an anxiety patient also each time I have pain in my chest and each day I panic... do you haveany symptoms common with mine?? Any help would be highly appreciatedLooking forward to hear from you.
Best regards
