Hello, like many others I am searching for help. I am a 40 year old male in reasonably good heath. I am lactose intolerant and have some strange food intolerances that my doctors cannot seem to nail down. This causes me to have indigestion with the following symptoms: stomach distention, belching, flatulence, chest and shoulder pain, back/nerve discomfort, and sometimes light perspiration (not sweating drops or anything). I use antacids like Tums which seem to help a little. Sometimes, I get PVC's.
I am very concerned about the chest and shoulder pains I am feeling along with the mild sweating. I went and had a treadmill test which came back negative. Why would my nerves be affected by indigestion?
I try to avoid foods/liquids that would cause indigestion but it doesn't seem to help. I have this 24/7 now.
