Sound like GERD?
Apr 25, 2006

The past few weeks I've been having some problems that are really starting to freak me out. I have had this constant pain (literally constant) just under my left rib cage (stomach area) and left side of the upper chest. It feels like indigestion or heartburn sometimes, and then other times feels like a pulled muscle, like a dull ache. The pain can radiate to the back and up into the throat and jaw, and sometimes to the right chest. Its aggravated sometimes when I take a deep breath. On the few instances the pain DOES go I get a really bad stomach ache. I keep getting weird sore throats every few days. Sometimes over the counter indigestion stuff works, but the pain comes back. Had this trouble at christmas, but it only lasted for a few days when my doc put me on anti acid medicine, Omerzapane, or something like that. It worries the hell out of me. I'm 23 and have never had trouble like this. I admit I smoke (been 3 years now), a bad habit I am in the process of ditching (5 days without one!). Just wanted to know, is pain like this characteristic of GERD? I should mention I came off Zoloft about 6 weeks ago. I know this can cause stomach/chest cramps, but I feel this has gone on too long to be that. Maybe Im just a worrier, but things like cancer and other stuff runs through your head. I would be really grateful to hear from someone. Thanks
