just wondering... I'm still in debate/diagnosis if the pain I've been having is from GERD or more likely NERD. However, I have been having pains in my chest and mainly my ribs for some time now also. Some areas are excrutiating to the touch, but just in certain little points on my ribcage... also when I move my arms a certain way, I have pain in my sternum area and pectoral area that is definitely caused by movement..
When my GERD was at its worst, I also had those same pains you describe which the dr. thought was chostocondritis. With the Nexium came relief of the GERD as well as the chostocondritis. Coincidence? Who knows...
