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 had hoped, stumbling on this support group, that it would be a place of shared experiences, and suggested coping mechanisms. Sadly that is not what I am seeing. I don't know how doom and gloom and sarcasm contributes to the strength it takes to live well with this disease. Sad.
Where's my book. Lol. Finished or not, I want to read it Betty. By the way, has this crap been cured yet? Just a humor. I seriously hope you're ok. Looking forward to the chapters. If you can't finish, I'll take the notes. At least I'll know what a friend thought. Signed Bob. Texas born and raised and don't care what anyone thinks of that :) Do care about ya'll though. Especially Betty.

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!
theatre and I are there already. I'm having a very berry tea with crackers, cheese and cherry tomatoes and she's having a joint with some beer and we're both on really comfy recliners on thick pile carpet. we need some help with the decor if anyone is around??
