Question New here with questions

I don't know if I even have this
but I am going to the doctor tomorrow
and thought I would tell you all my
symptoms and see if you have the same thing
or should I be looking in another area.
For over a month now I have been having
major stomach and back pain. My stomach pain
it a bad burning pain and when it happend I feel
really really hot and like I could vomit.
I am also having well I guess the only way to put it
is gas pain like sypmtoms in my lower back. I also have bad
heartburn like symptoms that go almost all the way up to my neck.
Anyone one else have this or do I have something different than Acid Reflux?
Any questions I should ask my doctor? Thanks so much for any advice! :-)

Hi Trisa
A lot of your symptoms do sound like acid reflux. Symptoms vary from person to person but heartburn, pain in the chest and back, and a burning stomach are all quite common. Just explain your symptoms to your doctor and see what he or she says. If he suspects acid reflux, he will likely try you on a medication like Prilosec or Nexium to see if that takes your symptoms away. Have you tried any over the counter medications such as Zantac or Gaviscon in the month that you have been experiencing symptoms? You may also have to modify your diet and avoid spicy foods and anything with citrus or tomato. These are all acid aggravators.
Good luck tomorrow.

Thanks for your reply.
Yes I have tried over the counter stuff and
nothing helps :-(
I understand the stomach and chest pain
but why the back? Also can it make you feel dizzy at all?
