hi guys im new here . can acid reflux cause chest and back pain i cough every day and sometimes have a severe sore throat . also can it cause a pain down Ur left arm . iv had test after test they say its acid reflux . what makes it worse is i have a health anxiety so i get anxiety most weeks because of this .
I have had acid reflux for 10 years and a double dose of prilosec usually would take care of it but just recently i started having chest pains and arm pains like i was having a heart attack. i went to a new doctor and they pricked my finger and ran a test that took 5 mins. she said i had H.pylori which is a bacterial infection of the esophagus. thats something you could tell your doctor to check you for and if thats the case then they put you on some antibiotics.
