Hi about 9 months ago I started having stomach pains/aches my doctor at the time put me on Omezprazole which worked initially then stopped at which stage I had no hertburn since then I've been on a whole load of differerent ppis and antiacids. I've had an endoscopy which was clear about 6 months ago. At the moment I'm only taking reglan which isn't working. I wake up with heartburn which I have through most of the day. I have either stomach pain chest pain or throat pain but not at the same time. one doctor says gerd the others says ibs I'm confused and desperate to get away from this daily cycle of pain any ideas. Lately I've had stomach pains till i eat with ribcage pain on my sides then the heartburn
Thanks for any feedback

Are you having any other bowel problems? Gerd can cause stomach pain along with the other symptoms you are having. I was diagnosed IBS but that was with a lot of diarrhea, many times a day and nausea. It doesn't sound like you are having any trouble in that way so i would say it is most likely GERD.
