Hi for the past 4-5 months I've been having constant localized dull ache in the center lower right chest. It radiates to my right shoulder blade. I have constant forced belching which eases it a litttle. When I burp it feels like the gas is coming from the right side only, directly where my ache is. I've had a endoscopy years ago and was diagnosed with acid reflux. I get bad reflux in the mornings I can feel in my throat.  I've recently cut off smoking 1 month free. Been watching my diet as well. Anybody else have similar symptoms?  I didn't think gerd/acid reflux could make my shoulder hurt like this. Googling doesn't help lol

    I'm not really sure if it's GERD related but I was having a strange pain in my back/shoulder and my doctor attributed it to stress.  I thought it was gallstones but it resolved.  I had a couple of episodes of it, months apart.

    Good luck.

    Sounds like it could be your Gallbladder, they can do a ultrasound of your Gallbladder and see if you have Gallstones

    Have you been back to your GP?

    Right shoulder pain can possibly be a sign of a problem with the gall bladder.

    You should go back and have it checked out. Good luck.
