Re: Gerd
Feb 9, 2008
I have talked with my physician & told her I didn't think this was Gerd & my sister-in-law said this was how she felt with her gall bladder. I've had acid reflux and heartburn before to know the pain in the stomach isn't it. It's more of a really uncomfortable feeling as fluids from your stomach are backed up into your esophagus and throat. She sent me to a specialist who ran a light down my esophagus. She said she did see some blood at the duendom (ms) but that could have been due to damage from acids from my stomach. I think perhaps it was an ulcer that started to heal as my Dr. had put me on Nexium a month prior to my going to the specialist. In the beginning I thought the Nexium was helping but after about 2 months the attacks are coming back sporadically. My attacks are in the middle of the rib cage (right under the breast) then radiates to the back in the same place. I have to take a pillow & put it under my stomach pressing hard and lay flat on the bed & sometimes I will get my husband to press really hard on my upper back area. I usually fall asleep trying to will the pain away. I guess I am looking to see if anyone has had this experience. Thanks for your reply
