Hey all,
I have not been diagnosed with this but after reading your posts it sounds like my symptoms. Except 1 thing. Today I was experiencing sever sharp pain in my shoulder area. Went to doc and they ruled out anything heart related but couldn't decide what was wrong. Never mentioned here. Brought up pulmonary embolism but it was urgent care so they couldn't test for that. My symptoms have subsided slightly so I'm thinking not PE and it's more burning in chest not pains. but curious if any of you ever experience that type of pain through your shoulder with this?

Do yourself a favor and try not to self-diagnose, Dr. Google is not your friend. If you've ruled out heart issues, you could make an appointment to see a gastro doctor. You could try and adjust your diet to something GERD-friendly, such as nothing spicy, acidic, carbonation, alcohol, caffeine, etc., and see if that helps.

Ditto to what Sharon is saying. Dr. Google is never right. The internet is great if a person has a real diagnosis, but trying to self diagnose is not the way to do things. Urgent care is for minor stuff, no they will not be of any help to you. Get in to see a GP.

Take care.
