Hey Peeps for last few months I had the same symptoms I see here and on similar posts, chest pains that moved around also between shoulder blades, sternum pain especially after sleeping, acute heartburn. I live in Africa and travel to rural countries regularly I just found out that I had a serious intestinal parasite infection..some sort of worm. As soon as i got treated for that- all the symptoms went. They move from chest and lungs to stomach, causing all sorts of problems, inflammation, ulcers, infections and general discomfort as well as teh toxins they pump out. The real indicator to me was sensitivity of lower bowels near bladder on pressing. Sure this isnt the case for many..but its something to check out.View Thread
