I'm new to the whole GERD thing, and not 100% sure I have it. The doctor basically just said that I did, wants me to take meds for it, yet no tests were ordered.
For a while now I've had chest pains, but only on the left side. Is that part of GERD? Not long ago I thought I had silent reflux, which could still be possible since I don't seem to have the typical reflux symptoms, whatever typical is. I have had the globus sensation quite a bit, but recently found out that I have a deviated septum, and a cyst in the left maxillary sinus cavity. Those problems have caused the globus sensation, but only on the left side, whereas previously it was on both sides. Prior to my gallbladder removal in May, I was given a ppi, but only took one. It amped up my anxiety, which certainly wasn't needed. Now I was given Zantac, but it's been sitting on a shelf because I'm afraid to try it.
Sorry for the rambling. I'm just confused about the chest pains, and the whole refulx thing in general.
