It can be difficult to see a specialist , however in Pop's case with the prior history they may make an exception. It can be very costly, but it is useful to find out if these problems are not due to a more serious illness. For all we know op might have a history of cancer, or growths in the lungs. Sometimes it is better to be safe. Feel better OP.
106 - That is why everyone is suggesting a different doctor or a specialist, and not trying to diagnose the issue themselves. I have acid reflux, and when I have pain in my lungs it's never because of the acid reflux, but because of some sickness that needs to be treated.
Definitely get a second opinion, OP! I had a similar situation with gallstones. When I suggested on my initial visit that I might have them, the doctor said I was "too young". I suffered for months before finding out I had a large one blocking my bile duct and having to have emergency surgery. Only you can advocate for your own health. Don't let a doctor intimidate you; if you think something is wrong, be persistent!
I actually had a similar issue. I have asthma and I smoke and I was having similar issues and I went into my doc and he told me it was probably from the acid reflux that he just diagnosed me with. My AR isn't the more serious one, but its new and he said that will sometimes be a side affect.
I'm not a doctor but isn't acid reflux in the stomach and such?
At the entrance to your stomach is a valve, which is a ring of muscle called the lower esophageal sphincter (LES). Normally, the LES closes as soon as foo passes through it. If the LES doesn't close all the way or if it opens up too often, acid produced by your stomach can move up to your esophagus. Thus, causing a burning chest pain known as acid reflux.
I used to get chronic sinus infections and bronchitis and antibiotics did absolutely nothing. In fact, I developed MRSA from being on them for so long. Turned out it was Acid Reflux and between taking a prescription antacid and modifying my diet, I haven't had any problems since. Point being, don't discount what your doctor is saying OP.
