Acid Reflux / GERD Board Index


My mom has acid reflux real bad - sometimes if she drinks she will force herself to throw up and that is only 2 drinks. She has to because the acid just burns her chest. She uses Prilosac over the counter. She stopped drinking it wasn't worth it. My mom was coming home one day and she felt horrible burning in her chest and she almost had to pull over. She doesn't eat much. She did describe the pain to me - it is like a nausea episode with burning pain and the pain will wrap around her back like you described and may go up her back to her neck. She already went to the doctor and had a physical so it is not heart related. I do know that when your stomach is going through gas or acid reflux it can make your back muscles stiff and you feel back pain.

You will probably need an endoscopy to check for acid reflux.

My back is still somewhat achy today and I felt a little sick to my stomach last night and earlier today. I don't get any of the burning sensation that you said your mom has. Just feels like a bad cramp in my back. The first time it happened I thought for sure I was going to have to go to the hospital but it eased up after about 20 minutes. Now, while it is still scary, at least I know it's something that will go away after 20-30 minutes. When I went to the doctor a couple months ago he said he thought I may have acid reflux issues but I'd never had heartburn until several times recently. I have been having stomach issues for almost 8 months. Had my GB removed in December but I had the issue with alcohol before and now after.
