Hi folks, I know I have gerd but lately it has been bad. I am having these symptoms, do they sound like gerd? I have a pain around my stomach and in my diaphragm , a pain under my right rib cage, a pain at times in my right arm pit and in the ribs under my arm pit. I also have a pain in my mid back to the right of my spine. I feel indigestion frequently. Anyone else with gerd have these type symptoms?

Those sounds like classic gall bladder problems. Gerd is usually heartburn and sometimes throat burn, but usually not pain in the right rib cage. I would ask my doctor about possible gall bladder issues. I was diagnosed with acid reflux while I actually had a bad gall bladder. You can do a test called HIDA scan that will tell how well your gall bladder is functioning. Between 35 and 75 is good. Mine was at 8 when I was finally diagnosed.
