I visited my gI doc today and he was perplexed by the fact that I still continue to suffer from reflux after the TIF procedure. Anyways we talked for a bit and I mentioned to him about a back injury I had that happened a few weeks before I started having reflux. I was wondering if anyone else has heard of back/neck injuries leading to gerd? I was thinking about seeing a chiropractor for a few months to see if it helps. The reason I started thinking of all this is because I recently read through a post on healthboards by triciar, but triciar said
"To make a very long story short, I found out that I have a disc in my neck at C5 that is pressing on my spinal nerve. When I started physical therapy for this with cervical traction, by belching got drastically decreased and frequent hiccups began to be less frequent. I believe the phrenic stomach nerve was being compressed as well and it is causing my stomach to be twitchy"
here it is.
Heres an article I read about it though.
what do you think?
