I have GERD and sometimes get brief dull pain under my left breast, now I feel the same one under my right breast/rib area. That normal? Kidney stone?

Not kidney stone: If you have stones, it would not be a brief and dull pain. Besides your pain is too high and upfront above the kidney area. I think you need to see a doctor about this since the pain you describe is not typical for gerd. Read more
