i have been told i had i have GERD but then the diagnosis turned into costochondritis because the GERD medicine didn't help.
now the last week or so i have been having burping and heartburn after spicy foods or if i get too full.
BUT i also have lifted my 5 yr old who is 50 pounds and my back was killing me yesterday! then i moved a desk like a dummy!
i took a zantac today at 4 and my chest is still having intermittent pains. and it IS sore to the touch.
do costo and GERD relate to each other? how do you know the difference? if afgter taking zantac, i'm still having the pains, is it consto?
my docs can't even figure it out so how do i expect to. ha
