Back Pain with GERD
LindaPA posted:
Dr recently diagnosed me with GERD. Gave me an acid blocker once a day. I still get heavy feeling on chest. Had all the heart test and was cleared. Does anyone get pain in back (across shoulder blade). This happens when I lay down or sit down but seems to relieve some when Imove.

I have GERDS and hiatal hernia. Yes I do get the chest pain that seems to go all the way through to my back and across my shoulders. I either take some Tylenol and in cases where it seems to last to long or can't get it to stop I will go to the ER. But once I go there the ECG/EKG always come out with no problems and they just send you back home maybe with a pain prescription. I think its just a part of GERDS but I do know its very scary.
