severe upper back pain w/acid reflux???

Hi all~

Does anyone have severe upper back pain at night with acid reflux? I've been dealing with upper back pain at night for the past year and I've been told a couple of times that it could be acid reflux. I don't even have heartburn or acid reflux (I don't think), but have been dealing with a lot of different things in the past year. I was on prilosec for a month and 1/2 but it didn't help with the pain at all so my dr told me to stop taking it. I've had upper chest x-rays and spinal x-rays (came back normal) as well as been to a chiropractor and that hasn't helped either. Does this sound at all familiar with anyone?

Thanks!

Hi Smurf, I have suffered from severe back pain for a long time now. My pain is right near my wings. My doctor told me it was trapped gas and also acid.
I do have GERD AND IBS so I think he is right. Try some Gas-X or Gaviscon and see if that helps. Good Luck

Thanks Linda! That is exactly where my pain is. Is yours ONLY at night? Once I get up in the morning the pain goes away. I have not been diagnosed with GERD, but I do have IBS also. I will try Gax-X. I appreciate your reply.

Actually my pain could come at any time of day. You could have silent heartburn. Good Luck
