 I 100% sure i have gerd and will be going to my doc to get a referal to see a spec.  i have mostly neasuea, constant burping sometimes with acid/food taste even after water.  stomache ache constantly, bloated, sore throat. lump in throat feeling, hiccups, some heartburn but not much mainly the neasuea and general stomach ache.
i have had stomach probs for years and saw a gastro spec about 3 years ago who did a endscope thing.......and ultrsound...i was found to have gallstones but eth endescope showed that everything was ok, and biospies were clear.told me i just have IBS which is weird as i dont have diareahh or constipation.......i have however got progresively worse.......my symptoms seem to have over the years come  and go like last for like coupleof months and then disaaper for few months and then come back...........however i have develped new symptoms with this attack that i seem to be in and its the worst its ever been.........i dont tolerate and prescribed drugs and tend to use only natural stuff.............i have also had gastritis twice this year and have successfuly treated it with homeopathics both times...........i think the gastritis is caused by the reflux..
anyway my questions are
do my symtpoms sound like gerd
i have stabby like pains in the back of my shoulder blades and middle of back is this a reflux symptom
my stools are  normal shape and regualr dialy but they tend to have a yellow look to them  is this common with GERD
i have read a few posts about the low carb diet is anyone healed completly from this diet except the DR norm guy
how common is a hernia with GERD.
any natural stuff that works...........my homepath is going to make me a homeopathic reflux solution up so will of course try that.
i have two other medical conditions and this which is a major stressor which dosent help...........i have heaps of affirmation cds etc so must get back into that.
if i get prescribed midication like reflux stuff it will be a very very very last resort for me as i said i cant tolerate meds and i am DERTERMINED to heal myself natuarly and get well....i want the doc tests to help confrim that i dont have other stuff like hernia or gallbalddr deasease or what ever............
my diet is gluten free mostly fruit and viegies, nut butters ie almond, natural yog kiefer, little chicken and little red meat like i eat meat about five times a month as i have never been to fond of it, um what else, raw honey as it sooths my throat, cocnut milk, gluten free sugar free musli, millet prridge rice etc........i dont eat junk food which is easier for me as most junk food has gluten whic i cannot eat.  oh im not over weight and i love food which makes this hard as i love to eat and still eat way to much foood whic prob doesnt help the tummy in its digestion.
anyway any help would be great

Hi Beemer! Welcome to HealingWell!

It's hard to know if your symptoms could be GERD. They could be, or they could be something with similar symptoms, many people present with different symptoms as well, some people never have "heartburn" - sorry I can't be of more help. Your best bet is to talk to your doc.

Hmmm... have you tried Tums? Prilosec OTC? Tagament or Zantac? Have they relieved symptoms?

Best of luck.

Hi Beemer

Welcome to HealingWell. This is a great site. I look forward to getting to know you better. I am Kitt.  I have Gerd but I do take medicine for it, one capsule per day.

You have a lot of sx and many of your sx could be caused by other problems.  I am sorry I can not validate your feeling that you most likely have GERD.

I am glad you are seeing your physician as you may need some tests to find out just what is going on with you.  Please keep posting as we are here to support you.

Again welcome
