'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

Do you get rib pain or severe chest and back pain with esophagitis?

Do you get rib pain or severe chest and back pain with esophagitis? It even hurts to stretch.

That’s what I’m dealing with 😢 except I was diagnosed with severe gerd.

Godelyn Sadiua Ricana
how do you manage it?

Beth Fagan
Godelyn Sadiua Ricana I’m super new to this so I haven’t been able to find a way to manage it. I’m going to try a really strict bland diet and try bone broth before each meal. It has been a nightmare honestly. Even when my body isn’t digesting or taking in food I feel a constant ache in my back and under my ribs.

Beth Fagan
The advice I keep hearing is to let your body heal. Eat only super bland things for a long time and let your body recover. Then introduce those foods that may be triggers. I don’t think I’ve given my body enough time to heal.

Godelyn Sadiua Ricana
Beth Fagan sometimes i dont know what to do anymore, most of the time i just eat plain rice as i am afraid to eat anything. last night tried steamed salmon and steamed veggies. i kept regurgitating up to now.

Godelyn Sadiua Ricana
sometimes i feel like i am being strangled.

Moumita Paitandy Menon
Beth Fagan your symptoms match mine. Do you have gastritis as well?

Moumita Paitandy Menon
Godelyn Sadiua Ricana that's terrible. I am dealing with this since Dec 2017. Do you have H.Pylori?

Beth Fagan
Moumita Paitandy Menon I was diagnosed with mild gastritis a few years ago but now it’s “severe gerd”.

Godelyn Sadiua Ricana
Moumita Paitandy Menon been tested 3x all negative. i believed so mine was caused by taking nsaids way back.

Beth Fagan Godelyn
Sadiua Ricana go to your doctor and get an endoscopy done if you haven’t already. There’s a stomach bacteria hpylori that causes ulcers and stuff. Given that you can’t eat much without throwing up, you should get checked out sooner rather than later!

Beth Fagan
Oops just saw your other comment. I think you need to get a scope done still if you haven’t gotten one!!

Godelyn Sadiua Ricana
yes i am due for endoscopy. i am pretty anxious but doing so will see whats going on down me.

Godelyn Sadiua Ricana
how was your experience when you had yours?

Beth Fagan Godelyn
Sadiua Ricana it flared up my gastritis at the time. I’ve had two but haven’t had one for 4 years so I guess things have gotten pretty bad since then. It’s relatively quick!

Godelyn Sadiua Ricana
Beth Fagan were you sedated?

Beth Fagan Godelyn
Sadiua Ricana oh definitely!!! They put you in a gown like they would a regular surgery and honestly it sort of feels like you’re going in for surgery but you’re not!! You’ll be out of work all day, need someone to take you home and let the anaesthetic wear off.

Godelyn Sadiua Ricana
Beth Fagan yay!!! i just hope i can stay calm and cool when that time comes.

Vicky Patrick
Ugh, it’s horrible. About a half hour after I eat I get stabbing pains in my ribs. Trying to eat low fat and watch everything. Just started back on a ppi two days ago.

Moumita Paitandy Menon
Me now! When were you diagnosed?What's your grade?

Vicky Patrick
Moumita Paitandy Menon I have had gerd for years this is first time with esophagitis. Haven’t had a scope done in a year so I’m not sure. He just went with diagnosis off of symptoms.

Moumita Paitandy Menon
Vicky Patrick o i c. I had an endoscope. I have Grade 2 esophagitis and gastritis too caused by h.pylori.

Vicky Patrick
Moumita Paitandy Menon does it eventually heal?

Moumita Paitandy Menon
Vicky Patrick i mostly have back pain. Chest pain is rare. I have burning and tingling in my throat chest and back. My GI said it would in 12 weeks I seem a long long way from it. I am on PPI since Dec 2017. Do you get bloating and mucus and congestion?

Vicky Patrick
Moumita Paitandy Menon I thought I was having a heart attack when it started. It even hurts to push on my esophagus. I do get a lot of congestion and coughing. The weird part is I don’t feel like I have heartburn or throat burning. Only when I wake up in the morning. Just horrible pain in ribs after eating. And behind breastbone.

Moumita Paitandy Menon
Vicky Patrick okay I see. Do you have gastritis as well?

Vicky Patrick
Moumita Paitandy Menon I’m not sure. I think I need to go back in and get some tests run.

Moumita Paitandy Menon
Vicky Patrick yes please ask for a scope.

Vicky Patrick
Moumita Paitandy Menon thank you for your help

Troy Lewis
Vicky Patrick I keep mild esophagitis. Through medicine and diet it does not bother me that much but if I drink say a beer it will cause a flare up the next day and irritate my esophagus. I know the signs now after many years and scopes! No Barrett’s! If LINX was an option would have done it already, not really looking at Nissen unless it gets out of control. So far so good!

Shari Barber-Semenas
Terrible terrible disease. People assume gerd, is a bad case of heartburn. For me its acid backwash. Im also a lung cancer, heart attack x 4, chronic pancreatitis, bursitis, arthritis survivor. A viscous circleI dont feel i would do well for surgery recovery.

Debi Shaw
Wow, I will never feel bad for myself again. Agree 100% about the viscous circle. Heart being the worse to deal with. There are not enough heartburn pills to make me feel better. So, I guess that is my second worse.

Shari Barber-Semenas
Debi Shaw, have you had your heart checked out? How long has this been going on.

Cassandra Luving ManMan Mason
Question is lung cancer symptoms the same a gerd or acid reflux symptoms.

Shari Barber-Semenas
No, not that im aware of or can compare to.
However, i had been experiencing heartburn/chronic and even had a scope down my throat. I was actually having angina, which resulted in a heart attack
If anyone EVER has fear or doubts regarding their health go to the dr. Or the ER.

Hayley Price-Pockett
Yes I do and to begin with I thought I was having a heart attack.

Jen Brown
That is your gallbladder giving you issues. It causes severe pain in the chest and in ribs and into the back. I suggest going to the DR and asking for a HIDA scan.
I suffered from acid reflux / GERD for YEARS and I recently had my gallbladder out as well as some other changes to my protocol (Digestive Enzymes) the pain is gone!
gerd with backpain symptoms

Don N Mary
I've been thinking I'm going crazy so I'm really glad to know you hurt when you stretch. My back hurts soooo badly when I stretch. Anybody have ideas/theory on why that happens? And what relief there might be?

Lyndell Ritesh Beepat
Yes. Ive been using oregano in my tea on mornings and it seems to help.

Charmaine Jay
I use to get it but I changed my diet completely and have stopped all medication and am taking herbal remedies and all the pain has gone away, I still get the sore throat and sometimes a bit of reflux but no pain anymore, I have a long way to go to be completely better.
