My chest has a tight / heavy / cramping sensation. The pain seems to be in my back as well. I had a nuclear stress test on my heart and they say its not my heart causing the chest pain. I also had an endoscopy which has discovered I have Erosive Esophagitis. My pulmonologist seems to believe its possible the Erosive Esophagitis is causing some of the chest pain. But Im having a hard time believing this tight heavy sensation I have in my chest is from Erosive Esophagitis. Has anyone here evere had this type of a problem? Is chest tightness common to people with Emphysema? Does anyone have any idea whether or not Erosive Esophagitis could be causing my chest problems?

I was diagnosed with COPD last year but I just found out that I'm in the later stages. I quit my job so that I could get disability. Now I have no money and have to be on oxygen for properly for the rest of my life. I smoked for 41-years and now I'm paying the price.

I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!
It's so hard dealing with pain especially when you don't get any support from the person who your supposed to be closest to. So hard when your trying to deal with pain and that person treats you worse than the pain. Having hard time understanding why. unless you are having a good Day you are treated like crap and they make you feel worthless.
