Likelihood : Your headaches are most likely a co-morbidity and bodily aches if in trunk, referred from GI tract. Address these separate issues with your doctor

GERD/Anxiety Treatme: I understand your concern. Usually GERD does not cause body aches or headaches. At age 32, GERD, Headache and body aches could be due to Anxiety caused by stresses in life. You deserve relief from these symptoms. Treatment of Anxiety includes: • Therapy • Medication • Breathing Relaxation • Guided Visual Imagery. Seeing a Psychiatrist will help with GERD, Headache and body aches.

Agree with Dr. M: You need to address the cause of GERD. If you are overweight, losing weight is imperative, not easy, but essential. Have a healthy diet, exercise 30 minutes/day, drink plenty of water daily so your urine is mostly colorless, have safe sex, no tobacco alcohol weed or street drugs.
