Hello I Have heard that shoulder pain can be linked to the stomach and because of this severe pain I am questioning this. I had this same pain following right after my surgery. I am at just about 6 months post Nissen and I can't believe this pain. I had a Barium Eso. Last friday and Still have not heard the results. Is there any one else that has this pain or had this and what can I do. This is horrible the pain nearly sent me to the Emergency room last night and now its just getting worse. Any sugestions? tips?
Thank you,

I don't have this problem. I heard its from gas generally and for some folks gasx has worked.

I get this pain in between my shoulder blades. It's not severe though. I suffer from a lot of bloating as well as "silent reflux". In my case I think it's reflux, but I'm not sure. When I saw my GI about it he sent me for an ultrasound to check out my gallbladder.

Do you experience bloating?

I got this after my 1st redo. about 6months out it started. I found out it was from either esophagus irritation or vagus nerve irritation. I took my chewable antacid and it went away. IIRC it went away completely in about 2 months.

Take care,
