Is it common to also have GERD/upper ab pain with IBS? I've been suffering from IBS-like symptoms since May that involve bloating, gas, cramps, and mixed bowel movements. For the last two month the discomfort was always in the lower abdomen bellow the belly button. However, in the last few days I've also began to experience GERD symptoms -food always backing up, hoarseness in my voice, coughing, and upper fullness/aches. I already say my primary care last month who seems to think I have IBS symptoms. Two days ago I started getting worried about my symptoms and headed to an Urgent Care. Had my CBC blood test done, which came out normal and they also did Upper and Lower abdominal X-rays and told me that they did not see anything out of the ordinary. I'm currently taking DGL licorice root, slippery elm, peppermint and oregano oil supplements to calm my stomach.
