upper back, neck , shoulder sorness and pain

I have Gerd for about 4 months. It seems improving. I'm taking the Protonix medication.

Along with they Gerd symptom, I also have upper back, neck, shoulder sorness and pain. And dizzy or headache, not the spinning kind, it's sometimes like a sudden wave to my head, then if I walk I feel a little dizzy or shaky.

SOmetimes I can even feel the wave when I was lying on bed. Don't know if it is related with Gerd. Do all kinds of test, rule out cardiology and have a CAT scan turns out normal. And I don't think it's from Medication, for it happened before I take Protonix.
And the upper back, neck, shoulder sorness and pain don't go away even have a good sleep. My neurology Dr said it may be my posture. But How can it be there for about 3-4 months.


Anyone has any ideas?

I have had GERD for all of my life and the main symptons are neck and left shoulder pain. These "symptons" remain constant even after having a hernia repair and while taking meds.Any good GI Doctor should recognize this.
