Hi I have acid reflux and mild gastritis from a scope three months ago. Still have heartburn, lower stomach pain, gas pains, irregular bowels, acne?!
Confusing statement. You seem to blame your symptoms on being scoped, but no one gets scoped unless there is a reason, usually GERD unresponsive to meds. You did not ask a clear question. At this point it would be best to write down all your questions and symptoms and discuss them with your doc. There are many treatments available that could help you get some relief.
Does GERD cause gas/stomach pain? I have terrible acid reflux but That's only half the pain. Constantly have gas, and stomachs, Normal BM too. Ibs?
Gerd. GERD is mostly about heartburn and sour eructations; gas and abdominal pain are not classic symptoms. I would wonder if your symptoms are more due to lactose or gluten intolerance. People who belch alot often swallow air especially when they make themselves belch. It's better to take mylanta after meals to prevent gas build-up. When bloated, drinking hot water helps break down the gas better. Read more...
I have stomach pain and always have gas everyday when I awake or asleep. Does this have to do with having Gerd or acid reflux?
I don't think so. It sounds like you're having intestinal pain as opposed to upper abdominal pain where reflux symptoms exist. Acid reflux generally is not the main source of gas or flatus. This sounds more suspicious for a lower intestinal problems such as constipation or irritable bowel. Read more...
