Last night sucked, i woke up randomly from my heartburn/GERDflaring up in my chest (never had nightime GERD before)... Now i also have back pain and pain on the sides of my body... ugh. Does GERD cause this?
BTW... warming up my back seems to relieve the pain.

Good Morning, GERD can cause many things and night time GERD is very common.  I have regurge in the middle of the night and wake up choking. sad

Perhaps it is time to check in with your physician. 

Heating pads to wonders for certain aches and pains. :)
Take care

Welcome Sarabi; my symptoms were atypical, but this is new for me. I have back issues..herniations, cysts, spurs, arthritis; I never correlated back issues with anything else. Could you have twisted when you woke up with the reflux? (I'm grasping at straws here!!) Do you see a chiropractor? Perhaps they can help?

I hope someone here has better answers than I do! let us know how you're feeling.

Hi! When i had a really bad attack late on night, my back was aching really bad in one spot and along my sides, but when the pain went away my back was really sore afterwards but went away in a couple of days...still dont know if it was realted to the heartburn issue.
