I have been reading through this forum and I to have been experiencing issues ,
In 2015 I was having an issue with my stomach with food coming back up on me the doctors told me that the valve in my stomach relaxes to much and causes this .
I am 51 , male 5"11 225lbs . in general good health overall . Had all my basic tests when I turned 50 .
Last summer I began getting indigestion very badly , and a lot of it started just after I started my dental implant surgery work which is a slow going process , so of course eating issues are expected especially with chewing issues and the habit starts of just swallowing food and not chewing it well to get it down because of course ( mouth pain ) stitches etc . I noticed a more and more of a burning , gripping sensation in the middle of my chest , it's not a pain per say - so much as it is a Burning sensation that is at the base of my throats sometime down my chest and into the back , especially after I eat certain things I can sometimes feel the food coming back up , and I have recently found myself eating TUMS like candy , when I do eat them the TUMS instantly takes the burn away temp but it doesn't last to long .
I do have an appt to see my doc next week about this , could this burning be the development of GERD ??? Because I am reading about so many others that describe the exact same things I feel .
