Back burning between shoulder blades and burping a lot!

I have been having chest discomfort and an ache or burning in my back between my shoulder blades on and off for about 5 weeks now. The ache between my shoulder blades can really wear me down bad. It sucks all the energy out of me. I have had heartburn for months and months almost daily. I can burp a lot sometimes for hours. Also, discomfort in chest area which is usually relieved after a long long long burping spell. I had an upper GI about 30 years ago and was told I had a hiatal hernia. I am scheduled for a endoscopy soon, but, was curious if anyone else ever had the burning between shoulder blades with heartburn or acid reflux. Thanks!

Re: Back burning between shoulder blades and burping a lot!

Yes - I too have GERD and Hiatal Hernia. I have pain alot between my shoulder blades. My G.I. doc says it has nothing to do with my issues; however, the back pain didn't start until the other issues started. I've also been to a cardiologist and they ruled out any heart problems. My primary care doc also doesn't seem to think these things are related. I don't know where to go with this...as the back pain is worse than the chest pain! I burp alot as well and am on nexium and zantac for GERD.

The back pain is common for us GERD/LPR sufferers. I had a reflux attack last year and my mid upper back felt like it was on fire.
