I'm not saying you don't have reflux issues. Obviously if you're getting relief from those meds, it is an indication that you have reflux. But In all my research and work here at the forum, I've never heard of pains that far from the stomach. Chest pain, back pain, throat pain, shoulder pain...yes. But foot, ankle, and knee problems are something I've never heard connected to GERD.
Please let us know what you find out at your doctor appointment. I hope you can get to the bottom of your problem!
Hang in there,
