Hi, i have been wondering is a symptom of GERD a burning pain in the upper back as i have had this for a month or so and i am due to go for an endoscopy next week. Also have indigestion at times and a feeling of nausea upon waking. I was prescribed ranitidine but have been told to stop taking it now due to having the test next week. Have been worried about stomach ulcers etc as i am slightly aneamic and have lost abit of weight although the weight loss may be due to diet change such as eating more salads, cutting out alcohol and snacks!
Thanks in advance.

Hi Jli

I have burning pain in my upper back on my shoulder blades & also get pains in the neck & a feeling of a very sore throat. I had a endoscope which said i had a raw esophagus but was not barretts. It never showed any ulsers or anything else just a lot of inflamation due to acid. The doc put me on ppi's but I still not had any releif after 3 different types. I am on aciphex at the moment if this dont work in a month the doctor said they will give me a ph test to see how much acid I produce. Hope this helps you & hope you get releif from ppi's as I know its very uncomfortable & it messes your whole day up. BTW I lost a lot of weight due to all the pain I was in think a lot of it was worry & finding ways of eating better.
