Hi all, I was just wondering if this is normal reflux symptoms...since this started I've been getting a dull burning feeling in my chest. It's not exactly like heartburn which I've had plenty in the past. More like a constant dull irritation which eases off every now and then. Sometimes things like Gaviscon, Chewing gum etc helps to ease it but sometimes not. I've been feeling like this is actually in my lungs on occasion rather than in my oesophagus (when it feels more like my oesophagus I get more relief from gaviscon etc). Could this be the acid getting into my lungs? My other reflux type symptoms are also higher up-hoarseness etc so it does seem like it's coming higher. I'm also getting the ache in my back, around my shoulder which I've seen people on here mention. I've mentioned it to my doctor who just said it can be reflux related but it would be interesting to hear from people who actually have reflux. Xx
