I've been professionally diagnosed with GERD.

Can GERD cause the following?:

1) no appetite
2) nausea
3) terrible indigestion
4) bloating
5) gas (burping/flatulence)
6) constant, unending stomach ache

If you have GERD I beg you to share what you experience. I don't know if GERD can cause loss of appetite and stomach problems all day.

My GERD definitely gives me nausea (and pain) and upwards wind (belching).

People do seem to have a set of core symptoms, on top of which they may have other symptoms which are GERD related, drug related or the result of other problems such as gall bladder, irritable bowel and so on.

It can take a long time to fully understand your own "package" of GERD. I've had it 3 years and I'm still learning new things! It's best to persevere with the doctors and the tests so that causes can be found for symptoms that overlap with other conditions such as coeliac, Helicobacter, colitis and so on. It's a constant work in progress I'm afraid!

My gerd / acid reflux gave me bloating, gas, indigestion and sometimes no appetite. See my gerd diary posts for more info.

Yep, all above and you can add chest pains and throat issues to the list.
