Heartburn or more?

Hi all,

Over the past few months (though only happening once in a couple of weeks), I've beem getting pretty severe chest pain, which extenuates into my back and down my right arm. After taking pain relief and heartburn stuff, it starts to lessen and within an hour it stops. I don't have the obvious burning sensation that can come with heartburn, but I need to give a few good couple of coughs.

For info, I was on ibuprofen for about 7 months and not sure if this could be connected. An also on amytryptilyn (sp?) for nerve pain.

Any suggestions is appreciated.

7 months of ibuprofen will give you gastritis which gives the symptoms you describe. You may need a PPi like omeprazole or lansoprazole and an antacid like ranitadine for the midterm
