Post Need the rundown on GERD

Hi everyone. After reading so many posts one thing thats talked about quite often is GERD. Its been suggested to me that it could be my problem. I really dont know much about it. Could someone please give me some info or let me know the symptoms. I have dull ache in right side, tons of belching- like I'm just full of air. I am bloated, feel full after a small amount of food. Occasionally I feel like my food is stuck at the back of my throat, or that my throat is swollen. Last night I think my chest even felt a little tight. I appreciate everyones help.

theres info on gastric reflux or GERD on the net, via a search engine, the stomach contents are forced back up and the acid can burn the throat

M. Dragoo eveything you mentioned in your post are classic signs of gerd.Those symptoms can also be combined with ibs symptoms.I know because ive had those same symptoms except for the throat problem,for going on 25 yrs now.I have anxiety problems, gerd and ibs combined.Hope this helps.
