I am new to this group.
My symptoms are as follows.
53 year old male.
No history of heartburn throughout my life.
3 weeks ago I felt a sharp burning pain mid chest that was fairly consistent.
No other symptoms at first, but then began to have sore throat, croaky voice, headaches.
Doctor prescribed Omeprazole (like everyone it seems!)
Since then pain has been intermittent - sometimes lower down, and occasionally in the back.
Strangely it seems to ease off at night and is never there first thing in the morning (is this due to food?) It is worse around midday but before I have eaten.
More recently, I have started to cough to try and get rid of yellow or clear mucus on my chest - sometimes it seems to stick to the back of my throat or tongue (uncomfortable)
I often feel I have a lump in my throat or something is touching my tongue.
Generally feel lousy and very tired, and my chest feels tight.
No change in appetite or weight.
Am I correct in thinking these are GERD symptoms?
Any advice greatly received.
