help with GERD please

Hiya, i would just like a little information from real people who suffer this illness as im pretty sure you know what it feels like much more than a doctor who has read symptoms from a book.
Can GERD cause all or some of these symptoms please
Full feeling in chest
Tingling/ vibrating sensations in body and arms
Heartburn in front and also in back between shoulder blades
pulsing stomach( my husband has watched my stomach pulse in time to my heart)
pounding heart(i feel lightheaded and faint when this occurs)
Pain under rib cage both left and right(stabbing pain)
throbbing pain where id imagine my stomach is but in my back
I wake up choking also a few nights a week.
Fluttering in chest
Sometimes feels like something is stuck behind my breasbone, then later it releases and it feels like it drops(strange sensation)
also forgot to mention, stinging eyes it almost feels like i weep hot acid they burn so bad

Any info ppl can give me on this will be very much appreciated ty in advance... gina

Hi, I'm a little late-

I've had chest fluttering, like gas traveling through. It's a weird feeling and I thought I was having palpitations.
Some of your pains match that of GERD, but some might also be caused by anxiety.
I hope in these months you were able to go see a doctor.

Good luck

Re: help with GERD please

A number of your symptoms can relate to AR/GERD. I have them myself.
Have you seen a Dr, if not do so. It is not a good idea to diagnose yourself. Waking up feeling as if choking is typical of AR and you need a Drs diagnoses and appropriate treatment for it.
In the meantime try Aloe Vera juice and take Gaviscon before bed. Eat a light evening meal and nothing to eat three hours before bed.
Some of your symptoms may relate to another problem. Get it all checked out for peace of mind. Solofelix.
