recently I'm having excessive belching and almost constant pain like burning in the middle chest, anybody has remedy for it? I'm taking 3lac and CS. How can one distinguish from heart/arteries problems?
Are you on the diet (thats really important)? When my candida was most severe, I was having chest pains. Now that I've on the diet for some time (2 months), I'm starting to understand what foods I can and cannot eat. Like, for example, today I just realized that I cannot eat nuts... Nuts trigger an allergic reaction right away for me. I get pain in my chest, tightness of the throat, my nose feels different and the world begins to feel unreal.
These chest pains should go away after sticking with the diet (and with foods you don't have an allergic reaction to). Unless you want to be cut up or made even sicker, I would stay away from allopathic doctors. Try an alternative medicine doctor. I know it sucks because you've always been told to go to the doctor and you have health insurance that covers allopathic medicine, but in my experience, allopathic medicine is rarely needed (I dont want to say never) and should be used at your discretion!
I mean so what? You probably do have artery and heart problems. You probably do have damage to organs. I think you just first have to accept that if you want to move on. You aren't dead yet, so don't convince yourself that you will be anytime soon.
---plus you might have an allergic reaction to 3lac. Some people say that it made them feel worse, some say better. I say just stick with the diet and a few supplements like Allicin(garlic extract) and Coconut Oil (for skin) and Pau D'Arco. Get your vitamins from food.
The only way to be sure is to get it checked to be on the safe side. However the burning pain in the chest you describe I also get and I dont have any heart/artery probs. Its part of my indigestion and I relieve it by drinking peppermint tea. It works a treat. It could just be a digestive problem (most likely) but best get any chest pain checked so you are not worried.
I get burning pain in the center of my chest too. And a bit of shortness of breath and lots of hiccuping. I've had about three EKGs done and Oxygen testing (on my blood). All fine.
I was DX with Gastritis years ago and take Nexium whenever it flares up. I had the pain / pressure, etc. again last night. Gastritis (mostly caused by H.Pylori bacteria) goes hand-in-hand with Candida, so I've learned. (Or, at least, one doesn't help the other.)
Basically, take stock of what you've been eating. If you've been OD'ing on Red Meat, Caffeine (even sometimes DECAF tea can cause pain), tomatoes, etc., you may want to try cutting some out and see if it helps a bit.
Also, try taking DGL extracts. I've been using these (see link I attached below, but you can find them at virtually any health food store) with great success for the last couple years (had BAD reactions to my usual RX of Zantac and Prilosec, so Doc RX Nexium...but since it's NOT covered by United Healthcare and costs $150 a bottle, I use it VERY sparingly.)
They cost under $20, don't taste that great, but if you're in pain, a bottle of these can be cheaper than the Doc's office. Oh, it says they're chewable, but I always SUCK on them until they get tiny, and only THEN do I chew and swallow. I find sucking on them like a cough drop (again, they don't taste that great, but you get used to it) eases the pain. For me, it takes less than a 1/2 hour.
Buy some and see if they don't take away some of the burning / pain, etc. If they do, then it's probably gastric-related. If they don't, then get it checked out.
By the way, the DGL helps HEAL inflammed stomach lining, has NO side effects, and is actually pretty good for you.
Speaking from experience, and having anxiety / panic attacks too, I know that my anxiety attacks USED to include chest pains regularly.
Once, during a considerably trying personal time in my life, I woke up from a nap on the couch, saw that I sweated a GIANT ring of sweaty water into the cushion, (freaked myself out) and basically started hyperventilating, bad chest pains, etc.
Got rushed to ER...they did EKGs, etc., sent me home with Valium and told me to see a psychiatrist.
So, if you're at a stressful time in your life, anxiety can unfortunately creep up on you in different ways too.
