Heartburn in my back

Hello, I have lived for several yaers now with GERD, I use Nexium 40mg 2 or 3 times a week, it helps me a lot but I often have a pain in beetween my shoulders after meals epecially fried meals. Could this be the same heartburn I feel in my chest after a meal? It always comes from 1 to 2 hours after a meal. it seams to me that Nexium don`t have any affect on this symptom.

Hi,
Heartburn though felt mainly behind the breast bone can sometimes radiate to other places including back.

You symptom could be due to gallbladder disease also. An ultrasound scan of the abdomen may be done for evaluation.
