Around the middle of last year i had a random onset of really bad pain in my chest, back and shoulder which the doctor very quickly and nonchalantly told me was acid reflux. I was given Omeprazole and went on my way. By this point the paid had significantly reduced, and over the next few months of taking the pills I had no further problems.
To cut a long story short, in the past 8 months or whatever I have had 3 more random episodes of very severe pain. I'm talking unable to sleep, the act of standing up and sitting causes a massive rush of pain, as does walking and pretty much any physical movement. Last time this pain lasted 4 days before subsiding, and right now I'm in day 2 of this lot. I've continued to take omeprazole as well as heartburn medicine (liquid), rennie tablets and gaviscon tablets but nothing seems to stop it once it is going.
Everyone else I know who has acid problems has told me it has never lasted so long or been so severe in them, and now I'm left wondering/worrying if it's actually something else eg: gallstones, cholecystitis etc...
If anyone could give me any suggestions, or let me know whether it's normal for acid reflux to be so severe, I'd love to know.
