Hi all ,
I'm a 51 male .
In pretty good shape , other then acid reflux .
I am a work a-Holic
Pushing 6 days a week 13 hrs a day
And I have an outrageous appetite .
I have been suffering from acid reflux for a while , however in the past 2 years I have undergone some major dental work and my issues with the reflux have gotten worse , of course when one has major mouth work eating problems occur .
I suffer from burning chest pain daily ,
Dry cough , tickle in my throat ,
And upper back pain sometimes under my arms I have been to the doc about this recently during a full phyical ,
I had full panel blood work , full X-rays head to toe , EKG the works looking for anything and everything that could be causing the chest and back pain looking for tumors etc result
( nothing abnormal ) .
The doctor thinks that the acid reflux has developed into a severe case of GERD . To which I haven't been tested yet . The doc currently has me on omeprezol , and I eat antacids like candy , and they do briefly and quickly take the pain away , but as soon as I drink something and wash it down , here comes the burn again , drinking something real cold has the same sudden cooling effect ,
Is it possible I have GERD now , anyone else ever have these types of issues ?
