Trapped wind in chest

Hi All
I am fairly new on here and finding it a great help so thank you to all the kind understanding people.
I was wondering if anyone else has had this symptom....On occasions i get a feeling of trapped air in my chest which is very uncomfortable, it feels a bit like i want to burp, i suck strong mints and drink peppermint tea this helps me burp but the feeling starts to build back up again straight away, the doc thinks i might have a spasm in the gullet causing this. I just wondered if anyone else has ahd it and if they think its a symptom of anxiety.
Many thanks and best wishes to all.

Re: Trapped wind in chest

Hey guys - my first post and I am so relieved that I am not the only one with this condition. I have it as I type - hence my search for answers. Snow allowing, I'm going to get some gripe water tomorrow. Thing is this pain only occurs every now and again. Did any of the doctors get to the root cause? I find it so debilitating - I can hardly get to the top of the stairs without clutching my chest.

Regards

2GT

Re: Trapped wind in chest

I'm very inclined to think this is acid reflux or indigestion of some kind, especially if there is burning pain and/or burping seems to relieve it. You might be better off trying Rennies or Gaviscon, and if that doesn't help see your doctor to see if they can prescribe something a bit stronger.

Re: Trapped wind in chest

Just a word of warning about peppermint tea - it's great (I love it!) but you shouldn't drink it on an empty stomach, only after food. It can relax the muscle between the stomach and esophagus, allowing stomach acids to flow back into the esophagus - making the symptoms of heartburn and indigestion worse. I couldn't work out why peppermint tea sometimes made me feel worse, but then I read this somewhere and it made sense!

Re: Trapped wind in chest

I get this from time to time...otherwise I just have flatulence and pain which is bearable...when it is really bad the pain is terrible and I cannot rid myself of it with any amount of antacids etc. The only thing that really helped was a 2mgm Valium which the Dr prescribes for emergencies! I think the fact that the valium relaxes the muscles allows the flatulence to start moving on its way! So sorry, cos I know how sore it is and as I had this after a social meal/gathering I know how it can be unbearable,....had to go home as it was too painful to talk and I couldn't think of anything but the pain!
