Can acid reflux cause rib, back pain?

Can acid reflux cause rib, back pain?

Comment:

Stephen Byers
I am almost certain it can. I just went back to my GI dr on Thursday about those very symptoms. He changed my PPI and took blood to test for other inflammation. My guess is the pain was caused by GERD and I'm hoping the new PPI helps take care of things.

That's strange. I wake up fine but after I eat couple hours afterwards I get pain on the right side of my ribs, very painful pain and it goes away and cmes back.

Stephen Byers
Yep. When I wake up in the morning, I'm completely fine as if nothing had happened. Later in the day (for me) it can happen on both sides (often the right) and sometimes into the back. It tends to migrate. The first thing that came to mind was gallbladder. I was tested and do have gallstones, but the HIDA scan came back find. Still more dr. appointments coming, though.

What blood test for inflammation pls tell

Michelle Baldwin
It can cause some back pain. And I wouldn't be surprised if pain in the rib area could be caused by reflux since it's the stomach area.

Ed Wuncler
Mine is on the right side the opposite side to the stomach.

Michelle Baldwin
Okay.the best thing to do is to go to the doctor if they will be helpful that is. But I have read that gerd can cause arm pain and even ear symptoms so stranger things happen.

Mine has caused rib and back pain but it's best to be evaluated by a Doctor.

Magdalena Marsland
Yes . The nerves go from the esophagus to the spine and pain can radiate to the back , arm , shoulder .
I get pain just beside the spine , around and under the shoulder blade , mostly on the left , sometimes on the right under both shoulder blades .

Ed Wuncler
I have the pain on the right side of the ribs, its not constant but it lasts for hours.

Lauren Watson
My gp said it wasn't related. But I get a pain under my right rib that spreads round to my back and its only bad when I get severe reflux!

Magdalena Marsland
Yes . Doctors will tell you otherwise but it looks like it does cause pain in the back too
Only one doctor at the emergency hospital told me once that it radiates to the back , neck , shoulder .

Ed Wuncler
Same here pain In right rib that spreads. What do you take to ease it? I jus take advil that sometimes helps other times not.

Lauren Watson
Not much helps it for me to be honest x

Magdalena Marsland
Ed . Stop taking Advil. It causes ulcers if taken for a longer periods.
Do research , ask Doctors but any NASDAI's can cause ulcers .

Magdalena Marsland
I lie down on the side and wait .

Stephen Byers
Not much relieves it, but I have found that it helps me to lay on something flat (like the floor) and stretch out. Also, it appears that getting up and moving around (walking, etc.) will help sometimes.

Nichol Samantha Albers
I usually don't get it but the past few days I have been

Magdalena Marsland
For instance , I just ate and pain right by the spine between spine and shoulder blade started .

Ed Wuncler
I get pain if I'm hungry or when I eat. There is no way of avoiding.

Magdalena Marsland
Same here . I got duodenal ulcers too so I get these hunger pangs . I always ate often , all my life but since all these issues I'm constantly hungry , I'll eat a meal and still feel hunger , like the food is not reaching stomach but I got stomach gastritis , duodenal ulcers and hiatus hernia so I never know what exactly causes what.

Koen Van Damme
I stro gly believe that rib- and backpains are case by something else.
With me it's the combination of NET , reflux and HH.....
Backpains are often a result of intestinal problems. .

Stephen Byers
FYI - my doctor also is testing for low vitamin D or B12, too.

Krystle Nicole
Back pain can also signify kidney issues as well.

Philip Cregger
Mine does when I get a flare up.

Sameer Ghazi
I had back pain it was too much then it's ended at back of neck still there what to do.

Joanne Burgess
Mine does when I get a flare. Hot water bottle on the ribs helps me

Sameer Ghazi

Debra Howze
Yes it can for about a week now I have taken all my meds and haven to take a pill for nausea and yesterday I walk around with feeling like I had lump in center of my back
