Does anyone know if muscular pain is associated with gerd?  I have pain on my left side.  It comes and goes. Right now my left upper arm is in pain and my left side of my face is kinda numb.  Earlier, I had a really sharp quick pain in my left side of my neck.  Been to the doc, he thinks a disc problem but it is just too big of a coincidence that all this started at the same time as the gerd.  Any ideas?  Could the nexium make it worse?  Also, anyone get calf pain while on nexium?

I am not saying this from experience, but I have a friend who recently (in the last 6 weeks) went to the ER because of left sided numbness, pain and pain in her chest; she thought she was having a heart attach; they did all the tests and xrays and it was diagnosed as GERD. She was put on Protoniks and is feeling much better; but don't take these symptoms lightly. Always get checked out by your doctor or at the ER. As a side note, when I started having problems with the acid reflux, both of my calves became tight, with cramps. I just assumed it was because I wasn't eating well.

I have the same symptoms. The way to actually treat the problem is through diet and some natural supplements. nexium only treats the acid part really. I thought I was going to have a stroke. Sounds like an acid reflux problem. I wonder if you have allergies.

anyways if you want to try the diet you can. the NO processed foods and grain diet. You can have fruits in moderation and vegetables. You can eat almonds (soaked 6 hours). Avoid eating meats, fish is good if you know there's no murcury. Try taking HCI with pepsi this helps with digestion. I noticed if I eat any grains or milk products my side would hurt and shoulder would hurt more. Now since I started reducing it slowly it's not constant.
If you do want to eat bread you can make almond bread with no added sugars or milk. NO afticial sweetners no spicies, no caffine. drink 8 to 10 glasses of water a day best to drink reverse osmosis water or Ionized water. You can try coral calcium with vitamin d but limit to one capsule a day.
If dairy doesn't bother you you can make your own cultured yogurt. You eat half a cup a day. there's starter culture you can get at the health food store. bromelain is good for pain and swelling. I'm taking it today and I notice a different not much but it's only my first day. If dairy bothers you you can make cultured cabbage juice , you can add freshly carrot juice if you can't stand the taste.

Exercise is very important. Jogging or speed walking is the best.

You can also take psyllium once you stopped the no grain diet. It cleans out your colon. If you eat a lot of vegetable and fruits and take psylillum it's suppose to loosen the mucoid plaque.

Last of all I suggest you take antiparasite herbs. I read 100% of the population has microscopic paraistes in their body. Should be done twice a day or consume garlic, pumpkin seed and carrot frequently.

I'm getting better now the only grain I consume is soy. grains is hard to stop consuming overnight so don't give up it will take a lot of time. Maybe a month or so.

good luck
