Hi all,

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,

Lou

I'm glad to know that the other pains aren't that unusual with GERD. I hope my appointment is soon as it's really bad at the moment.

My Gastroscopy is on February 24th. Though I'm suffering really badly at the moment. Smaller doses of Omeprazole and Ranitidine aren't helping at all. Nor are Tums.
