Acid Reflux / GERD Message Board

Acid Reflux / GERD Board Index

At the beginning of 2010, I started to have anxiety attacks that would feel like someone was standing on my chest. I had horrible back and chest pain that radiated into my neck. I just found out from my doctor that I have acid reflux. My last doctor was terrible, wouldn't listen to me, and dismissed my symptoms as emotional.

My new doctor perscribed me Dexilant, and I am ecstatic to say that my chest pain went away. It turns out, that after almost two years of suffering, I don't have anxiety problems, and just have acid reflux. I don't get heartburn, just this horrible pain all over my torso.

I have to avoid all of the normal acid reflux no-no foods, which is hard because I'm a cook. My family always loved each other by preparing delicious meals. Now, I can't even cook with black pepper (my favorite spice as we used salt sparingly in my house), and that is the hardest part of all of this.

The bright side is that I don't have anxiety issues. I have some depression issues, but the pain completely goes away if I follow the diet! :angel:

I hope that your issues get cleared up! Maybe you just need to follow a stricter diet or take a more effective medication?
