I've been coughing my head off since Friday...and having some major leg cramps/charlie horses and last night I got these horrible pains in my chest and my husband said it was probably acid reflux. I didn't believe him because the pain seemed too bad to be that but this morning around 3:00 A.M. I couldn't sleep any longer and sure enough I felt acid coming up and it was terrible and on top of all that I have a cold! I feel really tired and weak. Anywho...I stayed home from work today-which killed me because I am trying to save up my days for maternity leave. I had some BH contractions this morning also... a few actually but not regular. I also had one BH contraction with some really bad lower back pain- like period pain that lasted for a good minute. I was starting to think something was happening but nothing. Ok...just wanted to rant a little I guess.
I too have been awake the last couple of nights coughing it is rubbish isnt it?
Acid reflux can cause your oesophagus (i can't spell it!!) to go into spasm which can feel a bit like a heart attack! I get it all the time. I get strong chest/neck/arm/upper back pains and it tends to go away with Gaviscon Advance.
