Hello. I'm new here and while I've never been formally diagnosed with GERD or even acid reflux, I've had enough family members who've had it to know what it's like.
However, I'm not sure about one symptom that seems to be showing up whenever I get it.
I noticed when I start getting a flare up I get a sharp tingling pain in my chest around my breast bone area (I'm female if that might have anything to do with it.). My throat burns which is common but my chest just tingles sharply and spreads from the mid-breast bone area outward in a T shape.
Is this normal or should I be concerned?
