Could someone answer my ???
My DR. dxed me with gerd but I have not had a EGD as of yet. I do get a lot of burping, some heart burn and reguratation.
I get these waves of pain, not hard but enough to notice, they are quick. They start along the bottom of my ribs and go up through the breasts, sometimes through the center chest. I had some earlier today and they were at the bottom of the ribs and went through the center chest, you could feel where this wave started. All I ate today was an English muffin and I am so bloated, I do not know how to sit. Is this part of gerd. I always seem to be very gassy in my stomach. I get severe pain in under my ribs at times also, sometimes this crap is only left sided sometimes boh sides.
I had my gall bladder rmoved years ago and get an echo yearly for mitral ruguatation. I am on a 3 year period for colonostopies and have diverticulous. I am due in the beginning of next year. I also have fibromyalgia and IBS, but this gas, bloating is in the stomach, plus these waves seem to start there.
My Dr. was a pharmacist befor becoming a DR. she wants me to try otc meds, like gas x or malox. I am taking malox max and it does seem to help.
Any help would be appreciated.
