pain on left side

for about a week now I have had pain on the left side right below my left breast ( a nagging pain)  and also on the left side lower back by my kidney it sometimes feels like a burning sinsation along with sharp stomach cramps right below my rib cage.  I have been to the doctor several times and they said that I have GERD do you think it could be my gull bladder?

Hi,
It is unlikely that the pain you suffer from might be due to gallbladder problem.
Gallbladder pain is felt on the right side.
As your doctor has told you, you might be suffering from GERD and PPI might be helpful.
