    possible GERD acid reflux

    Ive been having pains in my chest and upper abdomen for the last 6 weeks or so with lack of appetite for the last 3 weeks. Most of the irritating pain is in the centre and runs from my stomach to my chest. When I eat the pain subsides a little. Im constantly tired with no energy. I sleep fine.

    Is this symptoms of GERD?

    Hi,
    Yes it could be a symptom of Gerd and also an Ulcer can cause similar symptoms.
    Have you seen a Dr if not you should to see what is causing this pain,

    Yes I have seen a doctor and I'm having blood tests and a screening tomorrow. Hope to find out what is wrong as the tiredness is preventing me from working at the moment. Ive always been active and healthy.

    "Hi,"
    I also have IBS along with a Hiatal-Hernia and Gastritis.
    "What have you been prescribed for your IBS"?
    I found diet/watching what I eat helps the most. My IBS is loose bowel, it can cause both constipation and/or loose bowel.

    "What are your Symptoms?"

    Hi chrispyzs,

    Sorry you had a bad night.
    Make sure you don't lie too flat at night, I have two real plump pillows. If it's reflux you need to be elevated in bed.
    Another thing that I thought of and you get pain with that was H.Pylori. I had that two years ago.
    Your Dr might be trying you on a PPI to see how things work out but if there is no improvement I think he will refer you for an Endoscopy/Colonoscopy, that's how they operate where I live.
    Generally one is prescribed a PPI for 4-6 weeks and if no better you are sent for the E/C procedure.
    Keep us updated and good luck,

    Solofelix.

    "Little and Often"
    I was told. That's how I have to eat.
