Hello :)

I've had ulcerative colitis, mostly in remission, for ten years... the symptoms have all been lower GI stuff. Recently, however, I've had some upper GI issues, and the people on the ulcerative colitis board suggested I ask on the GERD board about them.

The main problem I've been having is belching -- from 5 minutes to an hour after eating, I've got gas coming up no matter what I eat. This has been getting gradually worse over the last half year, and now I even sometimes feel a little fluid with my burps. Another symptom has been heartburn, but I only notice that if I've eaten junk food or lie down soon after eating. The other symptom I've been noticing is chest discomfort on either the right or left side. Maybe this is not related to the gas, because they don't always occur together, but I started noticing it around the same time.

Does this sound like it could be GERD?
