Acid Reflux / GERD Message Board


Acid Reflux / GERD Board Index


I started getting ill in 2009. I have FMS, GERD and gallbladder issues. Just this year I kept getting a pain on my right side at my back. All the symptoms started to run together. I've noticed my GERD had returned and was burning my throat although preoccupied with this pain in my back across my right side. I thought it was Gallbladder. My ribs were aching so bad all I wanted to do was try to get rid of this pain.

Now I have trouble swallowing I mean with certain foods and pills tend to stick in my esophagus and at the end of my esophagus on the right side there is a sore area and it feels raw inside. I get pain when food pass by it. I felt this pain over year ago but it went away with tagament and prilosec and other changes. I also had a similar thing in 2010 March on my left side like a sore that woke me at night. I thought ulcers. I still believe I've developed ulcers from excessive acid. I've been treating my new problem and it seems to have alleviated a lot but still remain and I cannot sleep no more than 4 hours before the pain wakes me its like a internal sore that is drying up. You know how a sore on the outside pulls and feels sore as it is scabbing. Only this is internal. I am taking prilosec again and other things aloe juice etc.,

I am more concerned now, because I am having all this difficulty swallowing certain things mainly sticky foods and capsules. Seems like everything else goes down.

I am trying to get a appointment with a GI, but it will be months. I am female and 47 years old and I have a stressful career, but was out of work for a 1 1/2 years and I think all this stress of no job brought it back and now I have a career again it's just getting worse. In fact this is the worst my GERD has ever been so much so to cause difficulty swallowing.

One thing that really scared me recent was while in a class all day for my job the breaks we got were just 30 minutes I had to run out quick and get back quick. I ate fast and the lump in my esophagus caused a pulse in my chest to pound and I felt like my heart was racing. I felt the pounding it lasted for 15-20 minutes. Like the food put pressure on the vagus nerve.

Have any of you had any of the above symptoms. I worry about cancer both my grand fathers died from stomach cancer but they worked in orchards with exposure to many chemicals.

Help!

I am looking for help also. Years of this nightmare...finally after all the tests and misery, I am told I have bile reflux. Not acid reflux. The meds for acid reflux that I have taken for years have only made the symptions worse. I cannot take the medication the doctor gave me for the bile reflux. Experienced many bad side effects. He says changing my diet wont really help and surgery generally isn't successful. Does anyone have any positive suggestions. I am beyond miserable! Thanks
[QUOTE=NJLinda;4734618]Dee...I have had Gerd for about 25 years now. I never had the throat part of it but sometimes my sinuses get bad and that doesn't help matters. GERD is all the symptoms you mentioned and more. I got those back attacks many years ago after my gall bladder was removed and they needed to clean out my bile ducts, which was loaded with stones and sludge. I also have bile reflux and I have had Barretts for about 8 years now. The Barretts is not supposed to hurt. It's a silent disease and you don't know you have it without having an endo done. You really need to get an appt. for an endo, even if you have to wait. just to see whats going on done there. I also have a HH and that does bother me at times. I have been on a PPI for 25 years now and I still suffer. Maybe your regular GP can help you while you wait for your endo appt. Any questions just ask as I feel like I am an expect on GERD and reflux symptoms. Good luck and feel better Linda[/QUOTE]

Hi Linda:

Well, my big problem is how to treat this. I cannot take PPI or H2 because I get heart arrhythmia's and bleeding problems some of the listed severe side effects. Just recently discovered. I have difficulty at the end of my esophagus right before food passes into the stomach. Sores form there or what feels like sores. I get really bad attack pain epigastric like so sore it take s days of recovery. Protonix really helped until I started bleeding and got a fast heart rate of 150 and bp of 160/129 after using only for 4 days. Prilosec causes gallbladder pain and tagamet bleeding and heart issues. I take no other meds either.

The pain between my shoulders is horrible sometimes. Today I ate a no no food and I am suffering. I know what a dummy I am. I lost my professional job in 2009 and was unemployed for a whole year this brought my GERD out of remission. I am back working again with very good insurance, but I am suffering so much not being able to treat this properly.

Is this back pain between the shoulders GERD??

PS also when I eat my pulse goes a pounding right where I hurt. It's terrible.

Thanks
[QUOTE=NJLinda;4739681]Dee you probably have a sinus infection if the sudafed worked and that caused all that yucky stuff to go down your throat and it most likely irritated it. That can cause nausea too. Glad it's finally worked out. :) Linda[/QUOTE]

Still getting rapid pounding heart when laying down. It's like pressure in my neck and head causing it. The Sudafed helped some with drainage. The acid still coming up in my esophagus but I cannot take anything for it. It's not resolved by any means. I still do not know what is causing this problem really I do not. It could be my thyroid because I do have these nodules and they could be causing carotid stimulation. I am to get a Ultrasound done on them to see what is going on in May.

Oh well guess I just be sick until I get it resolved. This has hit me hard because I am never sick that much and now everyday I am ill.
