Today I was driving with my nephew and my upper stomach started hurting terribly. Then my collarbone area and neck started hurting incredibly bad as well. It was painful to breathe deep and moving made it worse.
I pulled into the hospital and got checked out. They did blood work that came back okay. They also did a complete stomach sonagram in which it came back normal. Not my gallbladder they said either.
They believe that I have GERD.

So I got a prescription I need to get filled... But tonight I ate dinner.... Didn't eat much and then BAM... My stomach started hurting terribly and my chest/collarbone and neck area. It's been about an hour and a half and finally I'm not in horrible pain at the moment.

I know I have some acid problems... But this was and is terrible.
Can this actually be GERD???

-I wrote all that yesterday. This is the next day and I had oatmeal with half a banana and again I'm experiencing pain.... :/

Welcome to Healing Well.

Unfortunately, yes it can be GERD. So many people think GERD is just heartburn. It can be quite painful and debilitating.

Take care,
