A few months ago a had minimal GERD symptoms and mostly gas, bloating, and increased bowel movements (no diarrhea and sometimes there was not much coming out though it felt like I had to go). Over time my symptoms seemed to shift to being more "upper"
Now I hardly get any lower digestive system symptoms and its mostly nausea, burping. Has this progression happened to anybody here?

Thanks for your time.

Yep. Bloating/chest pressure are still my biggest symptoms. I also had the urge to go with no results.

Now that I'm on Nexium I burp all the time with food coming up, but there is no pain. It's a very strange road.

I have started with bloating now as well, i ate something different today and my bloating got crazy right after my meal.

How can GERD affect it?

One theory says GERD can be caused by high pressure in the abdomen. As a result of the pressure, LES doesn't close well. Gas and bloating may very well contribute to GERD because of this. Fortunately you can gradually reduce gas and bloating with careful diet and some supplements such as probiotic!

Yes, mine started with bloating, full feeling for like 3 days and dull upper abdominal pain. Vomiting and diarrhea on the 4th day. Nausea, acid reflux and sour stomach accompanied this symptoms from the 5th day onwards. Seen my primary doc 2wks after onset of these symptoms. Taking 150mg zantac 2x a day as prescribed but still get the bloating and full feeling some days.
I hope you are felling a lot better today!
