has any one else suffered from this having GERD? I am freaking out I really need advice, serious hypochondriac. Really hard for me to see a doctor right now and blah I can't stop worrying. It feels like I am breathing frigid cold air and my lungs are itchy. about a month ago i was having problems with bad chest pains and burping but those went away, now i have this.

Does it seem minty? If so there are some of us who have had this sensation with our GERD.

Take care,
Bill

Yes, it does. It feels minty and like the inside of my chest is itchy. I often feel the need to make myself cough to clear the itchy feeling but I wouldn't describe it as having a cough. If that makes any sense at all.

I can't stop being scared of big badder things than GERD. I keep telling myself i'm 21 and young and i'ts highly improbable but i'm not very good at positive self talk. My wife keeps thinking that i'm a hypochondriac and that there's nothing wrong with me and while that might be true this stuff keeps freaking me out. Really this is the only place i can go to try to make sense of this.

That sensation has been reported here quite a lot. I am not sure why it feels that way though. I had it before my last redo while my LES was about a 1/2 open at all times.

Take care,

Greenbeard,
Join all of us with that itchy feeling in sleeping sitting up at night. I find a stack of pillows against the headboard and a pile on each side, keep me from falling over. I have a small 2cm hernia 2 years old now,that came after a diagnostic procedure to look see how my Barretts syndrome, from gird acid washes was going.
I know this sounds weird, but I use organic sesame oil as a night mouth wash for 10 minutes before I sleep, which has helped ease that feeling. I started that from the sore throat feelings after the procedure. I found it was a detox method in a Dr Oz forum, but discovered it eases a lot of other things in this ailment.
