| | Constant Headaches and Heartburn Like Feeling?
Hello, I have been having two symptoms for the last 4 days now. One is a chronic and consistent, dull headache, centered just above my temples. The other has been a pain, or constriction in my throat area, not a sore throat, but another, unusual feeling. It has now turned into intense heartburn whenever I eat or drink anything other than water. Lately, the heartburn seems to be triggering more intense headaches.
I have been to two doctors, both of whom dismissed these as "tension headaches" and hardly mentioned the heartburn or throat pain. I was given 800mg Ibuprofen and then another barbitute (started with a B) for my headaches. Neither of which really helped.
The more I read about GERD, the more this sounds to my layman's opinion, what may be wrong. I did start feeling bad, at least in my throat, after eating a meal. I do not see much mentioned about GERD and headaches however.
Does anyone have any suggestions? I am in constant discomfort and pain each day unless I am sleeping, due to these two issues. I don't feel like eating, working or anything else. I am just looking for any advice.
