I thought that I had costo but it was actually very bad acid reflux causing inflammation of the chest/breast etc.
My right breast was so sore and sensitive that I would eek in pain if anybody as much as rubbed up against me in a shop etc.
I have had this about three times in the last 6 months and I must add that I have had two hiatus hernia ops to get rid of my acid issues - which is what made me take Nexium to try anything that would work. I eat Maalox ant-acid tablets after every meal as well.
I take 40mg Nexium per day and after 5 days I was almost 100% cured of what I thought was Costochondritis !!
Do you have Costo or due you suffer with acid reflux ???
Can u taste acid in the back of your throat ?
Does your back hurt over shoulder blades ?
Does it sometimes feel like you have a ball at the back of your throat ?
I think you, like me, have too much acid.
