Thanks to all for the response...I wish more folks would write though! My symptoms are so varied that sometimes I can't tell what is wrong with me. Tonight it is mostly chest pains and burping, but other times it could be pressure in my chest, sinus pain, arm and jaw pain. I know that anxiety plays a huge role in my condition, but so do any of the negative emotions that I ever have!
I tend to have more trouble later in the day and at night, mornings are usually good for me. I also know that my symptoms are much worse when I am premenstraul . What sucks is that I am entering the perimenopausal phase of my life and I am afraid the hormones are going to just wreck me... I am also about 30 pounds overweight and I am working on losing the weight. I am told that the weight loss may be the key for me because we suspect that I have a hiatal hernia. Bending over is my arch enemy! I can be fine and then do alot of bending and it will send me into a full blown attack! I can say that I do have pain almost every day to some degree, on days that I really watch what I eat it is less tha others, there is some degree of pain daily! What I can say with honest conviction is that I truly hate this animal called GERD!!! It messes with my life and the life of my loved ones every day and I have to try and make it go away!!!
Take Care, lets hope some other folks join in n this post and maybe we can find some common thread!
