    Acid Reflux

    I've been having acid reflux symptoms for the past 4 years. I get stabbing pains in my stomach and nausea which in result gives me terrible anxiety. I take 20 mg omeprazole twice a day and it doesn't help me at all. The stabbing pains don't go away even if i try to settle my stomach with bland foods like oatmeal, soup, etc. I'm starting to lose hope.

    I have a constant feeling of having a little something in my throat I always feel when I swallow. I'm pretty sure nothing is actually there. Is this caused by acid reflux? I'm realizing I may have had acid reflux my whole life because I also have chest tightness/pain on my left side often.. but I've never taken anything for acid reflux. Could it do permanent damage to my esophagus?

    Dealing and being too sensitive because of GERD

    I think I've been suffering from GERD since I was either in elementary school or high school not quite sure because I've only figured out why I've been suffering and having stomach pain whenever I ate and it's gotten to a point where I would vomit and have bad breath. I've only been diagnosed when I was around 16 and now I'm going to turn 24 in a few weeks. I've been prescribed pantoprazole and used to take it on the daily, but since I've asked a nurse she told me....

    Bile Reflux

    I have been having some stomach issues for a few months now, but they've started to get really bad in the past few weeks. I throw up practically every day, and I usually only vomit bile even if it's immediately after I eat. I don't really feel bad otherwise, but it's just starting to get annoying because it hits me out of nowhere at all times of the day regardless of what/if I've been eating. I'm trying to get an appointment with a GI doctor, but the earliest they can see....

    GERD, food intolerance, or something else??

    I am a 23 year old female, I am fairly healthy and active. Recently I was prescribed antibiotics and soon my chest was hurting.

    Do I really have GERD, or something else?

    Hello, A few weeks ago I had very sharp pain in the right side of my chest when breathing in (how much I had to breath in to feel the pain varied throughout). This has been happening to me often, but usually lasts less than an hour. This time it was two days. I couldn't breath regularly, bend forward, lay on my right side, or yawn, and it was very painful. I went to a clinic and it was immediately diagnosed as GERD. I want to believe him, but I don't have any other symptoms when this happens....

    Need help making sense of ultrasound report

    Hello all. I am a 19 year old male who was relatively healthy until a few months ago. I had impacted wisdom teeth for about 3 months, and was taking NSAIDs pretty much every day for 2 of them. At the time I was also smoking a lot, and developed a problem with mucous in my sinuses and throat. I was given 3 rounds of antibiotics which did not fix it, and then figured out that it was actually LPR, a type of acid reflux. I was also taking antacids pretty constantly for about 2 months before I was given....

    Getting Back From Prilosec

    Hello, I was wrongly diagnosed with GERD at the beginning of the year even though I had no symptoms like acid reflux, throat irritation, or really anything at all. I only had upper middle back pain which I still have to this day. However, I was put on 40 mg twice a day of Prilosec starting at the beginning of the year. I was on it for about two months. It made me feel absolutely horrible and it wasn't helping the initial issue so I went off of it and have been using Zantac to avoid the awful....
