@susief,
It is not necessary that chest pain will occur only if you will have heart problems , the ache you were having could be a result of gas and indigestion.

@susief,
Having a pain in your chest can be scary. It does not always mean that you are having a heart attack. There can be many other causes, including Other heart problems, such as angina Panic attacks Digestive problems, such as heartburn or esophagus disorders Sore muscles Lung diseases, such as pneumonia, pleurisy, or pulmonary embolism Costochondritis - an inflammation of joints in your chest Some of these problems can be serious. Get immediate medical care if you have chest pain that does not go away, crushing pain or pressure in the chest, or chest pain along with nausea, sweating, dizziness or shortness of breath. Treatment depends on the cause of the pain.

@spunk61,
This can be a scary thing, I know when it happens to me, I live alone, and in the city I get Chinese food often, when I stay at the house I'm too far away from anyone to help, it can be frightening cause it's similar to choking in that the pain emanates from what "feels like the wind pipe neighborhood", and it is cause for concern. I have found that hot coffee worked better than my cold water, ? who knows. Thanks for all of your input though

@susief,
you could be suffering from Anaphylaxis as the symptoms you are facing and symptoms of this disease are very similar
symptoms are - Get yourself consulted with a doctor soon.
• Abdominal pain
• Abnormal (high-pitched) breathing sounds
• Anxiety
• Chest discomfort or tightness
• Cough
• Diarrhea
• Difficulty breathing
• Difficulty swallowing
• Dizziness or light-headedness
• Hives, itchiness

I have exactly the same thing.. thought at first I was having a heart attack. It started in my thirties (I am now 47) and it took a while to put two and two together but it rice of any kind definitely sets it off. For me, drinking something bubbly like sparkling water does the trick. BELCHING takes the pressure off the chest and abdomen. Hope this helps..

I find when I have that problem, belching is the only thing that helps. Drinking sparkling water which I always have on hand now helps me to burp out the pain lodged in my chest from eating rice.

Yeh bad episode last night - just like you say having a drink to clear it seemed to make it worse - as if the rice was swelling - painful, frightening with reflux too - only when swallowing rice sometimes. I reckon I swallowed too much too fast. But the rice didn't seem to be cooked thoroughly

@james fraser5,
I don't want to stop anyone from getting the proper diagnosis but I don't think it is Anaphylaxis. I had this issue my entire life and I just have to eat rice very slowly and make sure it is cooked well. For those who never felt it, the closest thing you could equate it to is when eating white bread or peanut butter and you have to do the big painful swallow to get past it. My DR said that rice often expands and that is why fluids make it worse. It does not effect your breathing but many people panic and then all kinds of symptoms are open to happen.
Eat slow and relax

Susief said: When I eat rice, I have a tightening in the middle of my chest. I have a really hard time swallowing until the pain and tightening passes

I sometimes have the same problem when eating baked potatoes, the muscles of my gullet tighten up because they can't get a proper grip on the dry mush.
A sip of water usually frees the blockage, but in one bad case I had to take a sip of cooking oil to smooth the mushes progress.
The solution seems to be to chew our rice or taters more and not to try swallowing them dry.

I'm not a doctor, at least not a practicing doctor and I don't even play one on TV.....but I will confirm what you already know......don't eat rice for now. Substitute it with another grain or breads until you find out what is causing this.
