I have been diagnosed with severe grade 3 gerd. And when I get a flare up its come on only a few minutes after I finish eating. I mostly feel like something is in my thoat and chest and painful swallowing. I also experience a "tight" pain in the stomach that feels almost bloated and kind of hurts if I take my hand and push on it or lay on my stomach.I have also experienced that when I wake up in the morning my reflux doesnt feel like anything but once awake (even if I dont get up right away).
I ate everything I wasnt suppose to yesterday band my acid reflux was fine. I feel it the slightest bit now that I am up, but even if I ate perfect the day before itll still bother me only after some minutes of waking up in the morning.
I also hsve anxiety disorder which just recently have it under control.
I am going to the doctor today and I just want to know if my acid reflux is caused by too much or too little stomach acid. Im afraid she is going to just shove it off as an over production of acid which I know lots of people have it from not enough acid.
Just need some advice. I understand no one here knows my medical history or is a medical professional. I understsnd i would need to talk to my doctor. I just would like to know what others are going through.
