FlappysLady, great minds think alike. I have GERD and a self diagnosis of IBS-D(nothing was found during colonoscopy in July though). Not medicated for that.

Gets?? Is this to do with the gall bladder and bowels?

I am suffering with so many issues currently, gall bladder enlarged, bowel not working for days and days, a hyitus hernia, and apparently acid reflux, which is not acid reflux; I feel it is more serious, over a year and the pain is constant it is pain and in my ears not burning or stinging in my throat, now on top of all of those I have this serious pain under bra line on the left (rib) 8 days now, it is flooring me, even breathing is hurting me now 😒 I can't remember the last time I slept through the night or able to sleep not sitting up, if I move in my sleep the pain wakes me. The pain killers do NOT work, nothing works, I am now at the point even bending down hurts, I can't even lift a two pint of milk... Getting very worried, reading through your conversation GERD seems to ring something iny head. Maybe have read it somewhere in trying to diagnose my illnesses? The Doctors are useless.
