I had the gerd condition for awhile. I take medication for it though it don't really work. I have some back pain in which I don't know the cause though. I was wondering if the gerd condition can cause back pain though. Any advice would be cool. Thanks.

Hi Asiangal55,

I am going through the same, pain between the shoulder blades and left side below the shoulder blade. I have taken so many pills omeprazole, nexium, pantoprazole... I really do not feel acidity with these pills anymore but the back pain does not go away. My doctor checked heart and I even got a CT Scan and it was clear.

Have you found anything that helps with the pain?

I went to the GI doctor and had an endoscopy done. My esophagus is burned from stomach acid and I have a 4 cm Hiatal hernia. When I take omeprazole, pantoprazole etc, the pain between my shoulder blades gets worse.

He suggested 300 mg ranitidine twice per day (every 12 hours) and gaviscon 10 min after every meal. It has helped some but still get the pain between the shoulder blades (less intense).

Has anyone had this type of treatment? any suggestions?
