Anyone get burning between shoulder blades with Acid Reflux?

Has anyone ever had burning or aching in the upper back between the shoulder blades with acid reflux? I have had heartburn almost daily for a long time until I started drinking mangosteen juice about a week and a half ago. Mangosteen has helped with the heartburn, but, I still have the burning between the shoulder blades. Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions? Does anyone think a chiropractor would help? Your help is appreciated.

Re: Anyone get burning between shoulder blades with Acid Reflux?

yes, I had the same thing before I was diagnosed with AR. Couldn't figure out why I had upper back aches between the shoulder blades. It's all tied together because when the meds took away all the mucos and thickness in the throat the ache disappeared. Do everyhting acid free. (diet) and PPI's should take care of it. Haven't had it since. Good luck! It will get better.

Thanks for your help and thoughts! I do not have any prescription PPI's. I am only drinking mangosteen juice. Did you take prescription or over the counter?

My ENT went right to Nexium. He said it's the best healer.After two weeks I could tell everything was geting better except my burning throat. After taking 2 Nexium a day the throat was healed. Hallauya...what a ride.

Re: Anyone get burning between shoulder blades with Acid Reflux?

Did you have to have a endoscopy to get a prescription for Nexium? I do not want to have an endoscopy done. I am terrified of it. Can I ask what other symptoms you had with your acid reflux? Did you get any muscle spasms in your back? Chest pain? Belching? Just overall feeling bad? Thanks for your info. It really helps to hear what someone else might have experienced.

Re: Anyone get burning between shoulder blades with Acid Reflux?

I did not have an endoscopy. My ENT put a light down my nose and looked all the way to my vocal cords. They numb your throat so it wasn't bad.
A few years ago my gastro did an endosopy and it was done in the hospital and I was out cold. Piece of cake. You wake up when it's over.
I had in the back and a tight feeling in the chest. All from mucos and food coming up to my throat. There was always a lot of bubbling going on. I'd wake upduring th night coughing and I'd have coughing spells during the day.
Didn't know what any of it was from till my ENT told me it ws from acid reflux.

Thanks for sharing. I also have a discomfort, pain or tooth ache kind of feeling at my right shoulder blade in my back, sometimes it can penetrate through to the chest as well. I can pin point it. It is not gallbladder as I have had that tested. Did you experience anything like that with your acid reflux? Thanks again for sharing. It helps!

Yes, off and on I did have feelings like that. I;ve been feeling pretty good lately and then today all of a sudden I got very bad heartburn which I usually never got. All I had for lunch was yogurt, sugar snap peas and dip and grapes. I can't figure out that any of this would cause it.

Re: Anyone get burning between shoulder blades with Acid Reflux?

I have not had pain between my shoulder blades, but I've read that this can be both a symptom of GERD as well as gallbladder problems. In my case I have had quite a bit of arthritis-type pain in the past month - in my shoulder (left) and also my hips. I hope this is not a side effect of the Prilosec, but I suppose it could be either that or just more symptoms of the LPR (which has given me quite a bit of chest pain). OR, it could just be that I'm getting old. That's the problem with getting old - who knows what's "normal" pain and what's not?
