You don't have to have heartburn to have GERD. It can manifest itself in many ways....and sometimes there are no symptoms or they are very mild. Sometimes by the time you have annoying symptoms the damage has been done. If left too long without treatment the GERD can cause major problems in your esophagus, throat (including vocal chords) and lungs. During an endoscopy
the doctor can see the irritation in your esophagus caused by the reflux of acid from your stomach.

For years I swallowed air, took antiacids, etc. to stop pressure. Very little burning of esph. Five yrs. ago GERD surgury to correct. Pain which was unexplained by Dr. yet continues with two additional problems. Hiccups, and difficulty swallowing with regirditation. I take 80 mg of nexium and yet have the pain if I eat more than a very small meal. When pain begins, it is in upper left portion of stomach with additional difficulty within espho. Pain later radiates into back. Percocet is only method of tolerance for approx. five hours.

Drs. cannot explain, I have had full body scans. No one knows the solution or problem.

Failed to mention that over past several yrs. I have developed asthma.

I agree totally with what DAW said!

I also suggest that you take a look at a message I posted on 12/7/01, on the "GERD On-line" forum, called, "Some GASTRIC REFLUX TIPS we use". These natural remedies help my husband's and my gastric reflux, VERY MUCH!

Gastric reflux can also cause asthma, and other respiratory problems, like "Vocal Cord Dysfunction" (VCD)!

Do continue to get checked by a doc, to make sure no more damage is occurring in your esophagus.

To read "Some GASTRIC REFLUX TIPS we use", go to this link:

http://gerdonline.itgo.com/messageboard.html

and then click on the rectangle that has the words in it: "click to enter forum"

and then "scroll" down the page until you get to "Some GASTRIC REFLUX TIPS we use".

You can ask your doc about the tips, and if you and your doc have no objections, try them. Let us know how they help (or not).

I wish you the best!

You may also want to take a look at my website, called: "Can't Breathe? Suspect Vocal Cord Dysfunction!" which is at http://cantbreathesuspectvcd.com

Sincerely, Concerned lady
