Hi guys, it's me Angel!
How are you doing? I've been feeling alot better after 2 weeks of finishing medication. No more heartburn, shortness of breath, indigestion! Ive been following threads here and learning from so much from them.
So after almost two months, the cough is still there, like my throat's itching and i cough often. Sometimes, my ribcage or back hurts whenever I cough, sometimes not. I dont know if it is still related to gerd, but I have been cleared by my pulmonologist just last month, she says my lungs are ok. I also have been maintaining my diet, avoid triggers (though sometimes I cant avoid meals with preservatives).
One thing I think is allergy? Or stil it's GERD?
I also have lots of muscle, back, arms pain BEFORE, but a lot better now, just in the middle, couple of inches from the spine. Sometimes i dont know if it's just anxiety or what, i feel pain like heartburn on my chest but mostly pain like heartburn but happening on my back. It really is my main problem from the beginning! I wonder if it's common on gerd to have cough and mild muscle/back pain, but no heartburn or stomach issues!
The pain is not really painful! I cant explain but it is really a discomfort.
