Acid Reflux / GERD Message Board

Acid Reflux / GERD Board Index

Hi everyone. I'm a 29 year old female with acid reflux disease. But let me tell you a little about other symptoms I am having. I am not sure if acid can cause them. I am also a smoker and wanting to quit.

- Pressure through out my chest, mainly on left side.

- Pains in left arm and hand, also pain under arm.

- I also get some pain through my back near where my lungs are, but it doesn't hurt to breath.

- I do get out of breath at times/ hard to breath (I am also a smoker so that's understandable to me.)

- a lot of the time when the chest pain I also get this burning feeling in my throat.

- I have also had a chronic cough since July that they say is from smoking and some of it probably is, but could acid be causing the cough to be worse at times? Sometimes it's real phegmy and sometimes it's not. I also get some nasal drip, then it's dry at times.

I know I smoke and I know it's bad for me. I want to quit and am trying little by little. But I want to know if acid can cause some of the things I just described. If not acid what could it be?

And also, I have had a few EKG's and my heart looks fine on there, just in case you were wondering.
