im suffering from very bad GERD. I had CT scan as we thought it was my lungs but scan showed lungs good but there is hole in the oesophegus that should be closed, causing bad GERD. I knew I had reflux but never how bad it could get.
I take Nexium 20mg twice daily and Gaviscon advanced after dinner and bedtime.
its been awful lately, whatever I eat sets it off. Feeling out of breath after eating, horrendous pain in my upper back and sick feeling. Then really tired all the time. It's just miserable. The breathless feeling is awful and scary sometimes.
I am seeing a specialist who put me on Nexium, I am seeing him again in 2 weeks and we are going to do some tests as he wants me to have the Linx surgery, which I'm keen on as it should put a stop to all this.
Does anyone else get breathless and back pain after food?
