Hi Everyone,

I had check up here from a M.B.B.S Doctor and he says me that its a GERD pain i am facing it from past few days i had an ECG Test and Also Ultrasound of my left kidney but doctor says its due to GERD, pain does not happen all the day but sometimes it starts and then when i eat medicine it go away.
Sometimes i feel Pain in my chest then it goes down to stomach and then it goes in left kidney or left rib sometimes in left arm and sometimes under the left shoulder on the upper side sometimes i breath kinda hard.
Is it a GERD pain or something else ? i was not satisfy to Doctor so i thought i will ask here.

Hi there

If it is GERD then it will likely respond to acid suppression treatment. Some people do get pain that is not just around the stomach but if it doesn't clear up on acid suppression drugs (proton pump inhibitor like Omeprazole or H2 agonist like Zantac) then you need to go back and have further tests - did they check your gall bladder? Usually if they suspect GERD you will have an endoscopy to confirm the diagnosis.

Hope that helps,
