Hello Everyone. I'm a long time lurker first time poster!


I was diagnosed with GERD in March of this year. I have been doing really well with diet changes and taking my meds. but recently had a little slip out and ate some things that made my GERD symptoms return.


Before I just had pain in my stomach with like this burning feeling but this time my upper back right between and below my shoulder blades is killing me. This is a new symptom for me and I am starting to worry ALOT.


Is it normal to have upper back pain? What about pain right below your right shoulder blade?


Thank You for reading and your time!

If you are experiencing acid reflux and back pain, you should talk to your doctor about what is going on. It might be related, however, if it's not, you do want to know what is causing your issues. There may be something going on that is totally unrelated to your reflux. If that is the case, you want to get it taken care of incase something else even more serious than acid reflux is going on.

I agree with Kitt. Ask your doctor if the back pain could be anything else. I had back pain with my supposed reflux that actually turned out to be gallstones. I had never mentioned the back pain to my doctor because I just assumed it was part of it. It wasn't until I was admitted to hospital with acute pancreatitis that they finally discovered what my "reflux" actually was.
All the best
