What symptoms did you have that made you go to the doctor?? I have been taking my GERD meds and have been feeling some relief. I have not had this pain since December and before the attack in December, it was about in July when I had it. I feel okay otherwise, I am not exerting myself when I have the burning. It will be like this burning pain from in the middle of my chest and up to my throat and burn like and 1.2.3 gone. Another few min I will have it again. Then I wont have for hours and it will cycle that way.
