I have had a mild cold symptoms over three weeks ago. Because of this global pandemic I got stressed and started feeling chest pain and abdominal muscle pain, etc. I did not have a fever, like not a single day. So I know that chest pain can occur due to stress and anxiety and to make myself feel better I went to the doctor's office so my doctor can listen to me breathing with a stethoscope. She said that my lungs are totally clear and that there is no strange noises. She said that I should take vitamin B and I was diagnosed with oral candidiasis. Now I am feeling a sort of bubbly feeling at the top of my chest and in my throat but only when I lay in bed and I feel like there is something stuck in my throat and I have a bit of discomfort when swallowing. So if my doctor said that my lungs are fine, what can it be?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
Most common symptoms of Covid-19 are fever, cough, and dyspnea. You mentioned you do not have fever, cough nor dyspnea so it is least likely you have Covid-19. Moreso, your lungs were clear. However, since we are in a pandemic, observation and self-quarantine is still advised.
Yous symptoms of lump sensation in the throat and difficulty in swallowing may be caused by gastroesophageal reflux disease or GERD. Stress may have triggered it. I recommend you take Omeprazole 40 mg one tablet for two to four weeks. Avoid eating spicy, oily, fatty, and dairy foods. Avoid drinking alcohol, carbonated, caffeinated drinks. Avoid smoking and avoid lying down within an hour after eating.
I hope this helps.
