Acid Reflux / GERD Message Board


Acid Reflux / GERD Board Index


I have been having alot of chest pain and recently started with continous burping during the chest pain episodes. The doctor thinks it is gerd and has prescribed nexium. My question is this, i never have any burning or anything else in my throat that I have always heard was associated with reflux. Is it possible to have reflux and not experience the actual heartburn and things. I also sometimes have a feeling of my heart fluttering but I seem to feel it in my throat, is this common with reflux as well?

It is possible to have reflux and not have the actual heartburn..mine started out that way when i was 18 years old..seems kind of early for these kinds of problems but i also had my appendix taken out,gall bladder taken out and lots of female problems by the time i turned 21.i also thought i had to be having a heart attack,the pain would be unbareable and when i was told it was acid reflux i didnt believe it at first but after many years of dealing with it i know just about all the kinds of discomfort and pain it can cause and the thing about me is that right now i am pregnant and even when taking my nexium i noticed that as my baby grows bigger just as with every other one of my children my acid is harder to control and this is from the baby pressing on my insides..i take my medicine every day i just had to learn to try and not eat past 6 in the evening while i am pregnant or not even my medicine will work while pregnant.i have also woken up in the middle of the night when i was pregnant with my acid flared up so bad that acid was actually pouring from my mouth and i coulnt breathe so i now have to have my bed elevated to prevent this..the onyl thing i am waiting on now is for insurance to finally decide to pay for beds that can help elevate you cause i need one bad...lol
