Pancreatitis and GERD link?

perthy posted:
I had severe case of acute pancreatitis this past spring. (Docs have no idea what caused it.) My digestion has changed in a strange way. If I get too hungry or wait too long between meals, sometimes my epigastric center will hurt. It stops immediately if I eat (not drink). Anything. I'm assuming this is some sort of GERD.

Is there a link between the pancreatitis and GERD? Advice?
