I came down with severe heartburn and acid reflux nearly 2 weeks ago, pretty much out of nowhere. As I'm prone to heartburn, I rarely eat any of my trigger foods. The acid reflux is bad enough, but now I'm getting aches and pains in the muscles of my upper chest, shoulders and back. I'm wondering if this is a normal symptom of GERD as the last thing I need is any more health issues. I've already been referred for an Endoscopy and will call to make my appointment tomorrow. I've only ever experience mild heartburn so this is pretty scary for me. Any help, support or advice would be gratefully received.
Thanks in advance,
