and have put on about one hundred pounds. but have stabilized now havent gained any more in years. i am six feet two inches and three hundred five pounds. i asked my doctor about this and i see her again next week the eighteenth. the thing is i have poor posture and tend to lean forward when sitting and sometimes i get this bubble like feeling in the front and the back of my heart area.(i worked the family practice and embalmed many people after the med examiner was does with them and theyre in pieces so i know where the organs go). on my back side it feels like i am cutting of circulation and if i improve my posture it feels better, the one in the front i dont know about. if i lay down it feel like a huge bubble and if i tap it helps it go away. i tried sparkling water for belching but no improvement. anyone recommend a procedure i can tell my doc about?? god bless to my wonderful friends on D.C, john
Have you had an EGD? I wonder if you might have a hiatal hernia or if your, admittedly, poor posture could be pushing the bile and acids from your stomach into your esophagus. When the esophagus spasms, it is quite painful at times. Just a couple of ideas... I hope your doc finds the cause of your discomfort and is able to treat it effectively for you.
Be well, my friend,
Hi John - I would think it would start with an overall exam by your doctor. I agree with Kathy - the front one, at least, sounds like an esophagus problem. I also slump, from being in a wheelchair and a sedentary lifestyle, and am obese. Things just don't line like they are supposed to anymore! Are you working on getting your body to straighten up? I know it's not easy - we can't just go from slumping to straight posture - we have to go in stages. My body really resists normal posture - muscle spasms like crazy! so I am working on "less" slumping, and getting my core built up so I'll be able to support myself when I am able once again to sit/stand up straight again. I didn't realize how bad it had gotten till a physical therapist had me stand up with my back to a door post. Wow, what a shocker that was! Hope your doctor can find out the source of your problems. Take care! EJ23
