Hiya, I'm new to this and don't even know if this fits into this topic but can't see where else it would fit.
I've been having the following symptoms recently and would like any advice if anyone can offer any:
  1. burping a heck of a lot
  2. feeling really bloated
  3. hard/solid stomach (like a baby's when they've got wind)
  4. feeling sick (but I've only been sick once)
  5. unable to sleep because I can't get comfy
  6. pain in my stomach
  7. pain in my chest
  8. pain in my left arm/shoulder

Please can anyone offer me any help?  I've tried taking Andrews but this doesn't help and also Gaviscon Double Action (this worked a treat when I was pregnant but not any more and I'm definitely not pregnant now)

I don't think I'm getting acid reflux because I'm not having acid in my throat or any regurgitation.

Sorry to have a whinge but it's really getting to be a pain now.

Welcome to Healing Well,

It sounds like "silent" GERD.
You don't burn with it, but you get all the other symptoms.

Hi there and welcome,

GERD can present in many ways! Some people get the chest symptoms while others have silent GERD and end up with throat irritation or coughing. I would ask your doctor to investigate this possibility, or, try some OTC meds in the meantime (if you haven't already!). Sometimes Doctors figure our problems this way anyhow--put you on a med drug and if your symptoms subside, then they assume that that is the issue.

You may want to read a resource thread at the top of the forum.

Again Welcome,

Welcome to healing well Ali

Have you seen a doctor for this problem? Pain in chest radiating down left arm sounds more like angina or some other heart problem than GERD. I had a heart attack that was preceeded by symptoms like yours.

There are plenty of other stomach problems beside reflux. If your symptoms are continuing you should be seen by a doctor for testing and evaluation.
