Is this GERD?
Aug 3, 2008
Hi all,

I've been having chest tightness, constant (I mean all day long) throat clearing, cases of shortness of breath, and itchy feeling in my stomach and chest for about a month now. I also get pain in left corner of the chest. I took allergy medication because I had similiar symptoms few years ago and the doctors said it was allergy/asthma and that didn't really help. I've been taking tums whenever my stomach gets tight and that seems to help a bit.

Are these common symptoms of acid/reflux? How do people predict when the symptoms will flare up and how to cope/prevent it from coming?
