Hey everyone,
So I've never been diagnosed by a doctor with having acid reflux, but I am 95% sure I do have it. Difficult swallowing, occasional regurgitation, sour taste in mouth, all the symptoms. I've had these symptoms for about 3 years (give or take). What's concerning me though is whats happening in my stomach. Lately I have dull sharp pain behind my heart. At first I thought it was heart issues but then learned it could be from indegestion and heartburn. I've also noticed my entire digestive tract just seems to be off. Constant rumbling and slight pain in my abdominal, really gassy, soft stool, (sorry to go into detail). But when should I be really worrisome though? Should I be concerned about possible stomach or esopageal cancer? Barrots esaphagous? Feedback would be appriciated

I would have it checked out, especially with the pain in the chest. I was never able to relax until I had heart ruled out, and I'm not one to go to the doctor if I don't have to. There's no way we can predict what a doctor will suggest, but yes, I do think it would be worth checking out.

(IMO), I would start with diet changes and see if that helps, then it might be a good idea to get some testing done.

I agree with Doggbones, start with diet changes and then if you are still experiencing symptoms, get checked out to see what is going on.
