This morning I was woke up by a very 'hollow' pressure feeling right in the middle of my chest right below my ribcage in the center, and it hurt awwwful and I kept feeling like i was going to throw up but I never did, i would just gag. It seemed as if when I would lean up or stand up it wouldn't be as forceful and I eventually took a tagament pill, and got the most relief laying on my side so i could fall back to sleep. I woke up and it still hurt somewhat. Even now..about 10 hours later it hurts when I swallow food/drink it seems to hurt at the point I would imagine the food/drink is hitting my stomach (on the way down) its almost like a scrapping raw feeling.
I have never had acid reflux or gerd symptoms before and I am a fan of spicy foods so it comes as a surprise to me but I am hoping I can figure it out.
It also feels like I might need to just burp or something but nothing ever happens, there is just a constant hollow/pressure and the pain after swallowing food.
I am sure everyone will recommend going to the doctor about it, which i will but otherwise...how long does Gerd/acid reflux usually last for you guys, is it possible to be lasting as long as it has for me (all day)
thanks for any answers!
