I should note that even though GERD has bothered me for years and bothered me enough to get toupet partial fundiplication surgery I have never experienced the standard GERD symptoms of acid in my throat, burping acid, strong burning sensation in throat, etc. What I have experienced for six years now is a constant (85% of all days) light chest pain, some nausea, some panicky feelings that arrive with the chest tightness, loss of appetite, etc. I have been diagnosed with GERD had the usual endo and colonoscopy and the acid test so I am pretty confident it is GERD I wonder how many other folks have experienced non typical GERD symptoms and if so what are they? Besides the above I also often experience what I refer to as hot breathing. Every breath I take during this time feels hot like an ozone kind of deal. I also get some congestion when this occurs and occasionally some blood in my sputum that is coming from my nose. Anyways just hoping to find some folks with similar symptoms also diagnosed with GERD.
