 I will start by saying that i have had tons of tests! Cardiac Cath (all clear) EGD was good, every ekg ive had has been normal and all the bloodwork ive had has been good!  Had my GB out about a year ago thinking it would cure my symptoms! I still have the same symptoms! Chest pain, stomach burns terribly, very gassy at times, constipation and diarrea. Left shoulder and neck pain. I would say it all is a 5 or 6 on a scale of 10. and ofcourse i think im having a heart attack when i get these symptoms.  im on protonix and it worked for a while but now its losing its effect! Any ideas????

It just sounds like you have bad acid reflux. What does your doctor say? If you're on a medication that's not working, go back and tell him. You shouldn't suffer in silence.

Have you tried combining your PPI with an over the counter antacid? Gaviscon can help with some of the burning.
