I had a baby 6 months ago and I am currently still breastfeeding. For the past several months I've been suffering with chronic stomachaches and nausea every day all day long. I also have heartburn often and the sensation of a lump in my throat. I had an upper GI scope done and the doctor says my esophagus is inflamed and that I have GERD. I never had any health problems before and I am not overweight. I do not smoke or drink and I have a healthy diet. I was wondering if the hormones from breastfeeding could possibly be causing my GERD symptoms? Has anyone ever heard of this happening?
