This is my first post so bear with me! I have had GERD since October of last year. It started with pain in my upper chest. Dr. put me on Nexium which worked until April of this year when I started experiencing a chronic sore throat. Switched to Prevecid 2x a day - no good. Now on Pariet 2x a day which seems to be lessening the pain in my throat. Recently I have started having a nausea like crampy pain in my upper stomach and sides. It disappears when I am active - like swimming - and resurfaces when I am still - like driving or lying down. Doesn't bother me at night. Has anyone else experienced this symptom with GERD. It is driving me nuts and causing me a lot of anxiety. Thanks for sharing.
