I have have some pain on the left side of my chest (equal height with my nipple more towards the middel) also pain in my shoulder. I have had endoscopy gi done with results of acid reflux. The funny thing is no matter what I eat even water i still have that darn pain in my chest it does go away from time to time but always comes back. I have had a chest xray, sonogram of my organs and a calc test for my heart and an ekg. All have come back with good results. This stuff is so scary. My doctor and girlfriend think I'm a hypo and this pain is made up. I do agree I have went through some worrying periods over the last year but this pain is not being imagened. My question is this. Can acid reflux give me cronic heartburn and pains in my shoulder shooting down my arm? I'm taking nexium which does not give good results.
Thanks for any advice.

Hey Warpen,
You might want to have your gall bladder checked. I know you said the pain was or the left and the gall bladder is on the right but I had some of the same problems with the pain. I had surgery on the 9th the lap missen and while the doctor was in there he checked my gall bladder and it was messed up and I had gall stones and the tests I had done showed nothing. since having it removed I have felt so much better. The doctor calls it refered pain. well hope all goes good and you feel better soon. Oh by the way it could be gerd/reflux mine was really bad and hurt all through my chest.
