Have had gallbladder removal. Have RUQ pain sometimes. Diagnosed with GERD. Can GERD cause RUQ pain just to right of middle of chest. Have gas too?

Maybe. Pain in that location is pretty nonspecific, and doesn't sound dangerous, particularly in a 33 year old. Certainly could be due to GERD, although it is atypical. Best to see a general practitioner for a more complete evaluation. Hope this helps!

Could be gerd. If you had gallbladder out and have a known history of gerd it could certainly be reflux. There is a test called a bravo pH study in which a probe is placed in esophagus and records reflux episodes the receiver that you wear has buttons to press when you experience pain this allows dr to correlate your pain with the pH in esophagus to see if reflux is causing the pain. Suggest you get this test. Read more...
