Acid Reflux / GERD Message Board


Acid Reflux / GERD Board Index


HI there, new at this as well. Im a mom of 4 and stay at home, I am overweight, have been diagnosed with FMS, and TACYCARDIA. My husband is out of town frequently, and for about 3 weeks now, I have been nauseated before I eat , when I eat and sometimes after I eat. I am concerned, because for months now, I have had sharp stabbing pains in my shoulders? Then radiates toward the shouder blade area~ Not only that I have had dull stabbing pains off and on under my left breast, feels like it is under my left rib cage? I went to see Womens DR, and was sent to get a mamogram, all clear~ Tonight though, sad, and despressed with husband gone and 4 kids home, fussing, fighting, etc.. ( just being kids) I was sitting on the couch eating dinner, I started feeling sick, and after I ate I suddenly got a sharp pain in my left side of my chest??!!! Now, Im scared, I got that sick, scared feeling like am I dying? It felt so scarey. I am feeling very stressed, and am so scared. I am scared because , of being over weight. I had a friend who had a heart attack at age 30, and Im going to be thirty in a few more days~ Can anyone relate to any of this? I just dont know who to go and see about this at all? Everytime I have problems, I get thrown over and told oh, its your fibromyalgia~ HELP, Im a desperate mom of 4 who doesnt want to die!!
THANK YOU SO MUCH!

This appears to be quite an old thread, but I too would like to add one to the pile.

I'm only 20, and I started having left side and shoulder pains rather suddenly in class three days ago. I'm not overweight, and I'm generally healthy, except for some GI problems, including GERD and IBS.

I barely managed to walk to student health, where I saw a doctor who told me what this board has helped me confirm, I had a previous diagnosis of GERD, so it was most likely the culprit.

She's suggested a 14 day course of Prilosec. I'm 3 days in, and I'm still having trouble eating ANYTHING. The first two days, I was literally on the floor in pain, today I managed to stay upright while I was eating my only food of the day at work. Hopefully this is actually a trend for improvment and not just a fluke.

I was surprised to learn the bit of physiological trivia that if your diaphram is irratated by stomach acid, it can cause pain in the left shoulder.
