'Gastroesophageal reflux disease, or GERD, is a digestive disorder that affects the lower esophageal sphincter (LES), the ring of muscle between the esophagus and stomach. Many people, including pregnant women, suffer from heartburn or acid indigestion caused by GERD

I have GERD supposedly but no burning pain

I have GERD supposedly but no burning pain. I thought it was supposed to be like burning and acid. Instead I get gas like chest pains every single day. Man I can't wait to see an actual specialist for this because it is just weird!

Everyone experiences this a bit differently. That is why I didn't think I had any Acid Reflux - my husband was waking up with stomach acid burning his throat so badly he would start coughing from it and would have asthma attacks. Mine was more like nausea, extreme burpiness and then some stuck in the throat feelings - caused me to lose a LOT of weight before diagnosis with Barrett's Esophagus, which evidently means I had GERD for longer than I knew or had been medicated or watched my diet for - and now I know better and am changing diet and lifestyle a LOT. Good luck with your GI doc.

Yes! I burp constantly! I also feel like something is stuck in my chest sometimes. It's so strange

I'm with ya completely - hard to think of that as a medical situation yet they sometimes call it Silent Reflux - google it if you want to check into stuff about those symptoms. The gas is so tough to manage, I'm taking Gas X pills or chewable tablets and they help sometimes. Stuck in the chest or throat stuff, I use a slippery elm lozenge that sometimes helps, depending how bad it is. Hope you get some relief when you see your doc!

My first symptom of Gerd was asthma. I had no idea what was happening with to me. I went to the doctor with difficulty breathing and the doctor checked my heart rate and it was very fast. He wanted me to go to the er. I didn't end up going because I felt a little better afterwards. Two days later I had the same symptoms so I had to go to the er because I couldn't breathe well. I was given albuteral and an inhaler and sent home. A couple of weeks later I was diagnosed with asthma. Few weeks later Gerd
