It seems to be common among thyroid sufferers, but not confirmed by MD's that I know of, but does happen to Hypo and Hyper Thyroids.                FTB4

i recently read that acid reflux or GERDs is a common symptom of parathyroid disease...might be worth a look at.

I have Hashimoto's and I also have very bad acid reflux.  I never had this before.  And it started about a year or so after diagnosis.  I don't know if it's because my thryoid is getting worse or not.

I have an underactive thyroid and hashimotos. I had heartburn and reflux so bad, I got an endoscopy. I found out it was a hiatal hernia. Who knows if there is a connection or not???there is nothing you can do about it anyways, except Medicare. It definitely makes me more in tuned with the stomach issues.

I used to have bad acid reflux. I also have hashimoto's. I take a probiotic which you can get either at a drug store or health food store. It puts good bacteria back into your system. It has helped me a lot. I never get reflux anymore except when I eat something really spicey. Hope this helps.

I have been thinking very seriously about starting a probiotic.  I wonder if that would help me.  I'd just be heartbroken if I could get off of my stomach pill.  One less pill to take.  That would be great.  : )

I don't know if there is an exact link, but I, too, have thyroid issues and GERD, but my GERD was not the painful kind, just excessive throat clearing and mucus.

Me too! I was recently dx with GERD and have had hypoT for a few years.  I didn't know it was GERD because it was mucous and not indegestion/heartburn... I kept getting bronchitis beause of it however now that I am on meds for GERD- I haven't had bronchitis...

Yes I too never had symptoms of gerd until After starting synthroid for hypo thyroid.  At first I thought I had an ulcer because of burning pain in stomach. After many tests and scopes I was diagnosed with gerd and LPR.  Which is the silent gerd that doesn't present typical ingestion symptoms but sore throat and constant drainage and clearing of throat. I have correlated it to synthroid but doctor hadn't heard of that before but it is amazing all the people that have posted the same symptoms too.
