GERD and Loss of Appetite

Has anyone with GERD experienced this? Has anyone been told by their dcctors this is normal? I am now starting to think I may have something more serious since this been going on for a couple of weeks. If you read my previous posts I have seen many doctors and I have another appointment with my GI tomorrow and hopefully he can give some answers. It is really, really frustrating since I get hunger pains and yet have no appetite. The only hope I have is I do also have issues with my throat (which is still bothersome, sore throat, throat clearing) so that tells me it may indeed be acid reflux/GERD. Recently, I have also had a weird chest feeling and nausea right below my breastbone. Can anyone share their past experiences with me? Thanks!

Re: GERD and Loss of Appetite

I lost 50 lbs when I first got real sick. I look back and wonder how I made it. I just didn't feel like eating most of the time. No real pain but would come home straight from work and go to bed.

Re: GERD and Loss of Appetite

Thanks for replying! How long did your severe GERD last? I started off with symptoms of a lump in throat and then acidic burping. Did you have the same thing?

Re: GERD and Loss of Appetite

Hi Gar,

Yes, I've experienced total Loss of Appetite with my GERD. For me, I think part of it is that I know how terrible I'll feel after I eat - so I don't want to eat.

I hope you feel better soon and you received some answers from your doctor. Take care.
