Acid reflux?
May 10, 2010
I was wondering if anyone knew if my symptoms are acid reflux.
I suffered a family bereavement 10 days ago and a few days before she died i was getting a pain/ache in my left shoulder blade,left side of abdomen and left side breast pain.When i eat i get pains in these areas and i have diarrhea every day.I am really anxious and keep thnking i have something serious going on but everyone keeps saying its anxiety.
I dont really know what gerd or acid reflux feels like.Do you think stress has caused this?

Zipster:

First, so sorry for your loss. Stress can trigger or aggravate all kinds of symptoms.

May be a good idea to consult with your family doctor if these symptoms don't go away. You still need to figure out where they come from.

Usually, when I have GERD or reflux, taking an antiacid brings me relief from the pain and heartburn. It's a quickie way to get relief and try to pinpoint the cause. However, checking with your family doctor is a good first step to rule out something more serious like a heart problem. This is not to frighten you but merely to emphasize that we cannot really diagnose anything over an internet forum.
