Hi had got my gerd well under control after trying to reduce esomeprazole, but last week or so have noticed niggly pain in right side under breast area and now a sharp pain between shoulder blades which moves left and right, it is nor always there, but comes and goes, I sometimes want to burp, I think it may be gall bladder problems, but wonder if anyone with gerd had this. As usual I am panicking that it is cancer related.

    i have the pain only in my back, between my shoulder blades and the centre of my back, the GP said that gerd affects sometimes the back and not the front or sometimes both, dont worry too much about it, gall bladder usually the right said isn't it?

    I was told the niggly pain under my ribs on the right was my gall bladder - but if you are concerned it's best to see your gp. All the best Jo

    Hi, I've been having similar symptoms after I reduced my PPI dosage as well...all thanks to GERD lol!

    am thinking to up my dosage as well for a few days.

    had my gallbladder checked, all ok.

      Hi thanks for all the replies, I am upping my dosage again and have ordered some of those DGL licorice tablets as everyone seems to rave about those. I have monitored it over the weekend and it seems worse after eating cheese, bread, gummy sweets or when I take tablets, it comes on straight away then so I am starting on a bland diet this week so had porridge for breakfast, trouble it I am falling to bits and have diverticula disease as well which rules our lots of veg, fruit etc. really stuck on what to eat and GP's not much help as give different advice. IF no improvement this week will see GP. Glad gall bladded ok.
