I am experiencing constipation, heartburn (gerd) (worsened by: lying flat) and stomach cramps. Pale stools.?

Pale stools. Abdominal discomfort with passage of pale stools may be seen with blockage in the biliary tract and gall bladder by a stone. Complications from gerd won't cause pale stools. If symptoms persist consult your physician or a gastroenterologist for evaluation and appropriate tests will be ordered in order to make a diagnosis.

I have gerd and over ate food I wasent supposed to be eating. Days later this an still suffering from it, stomach cramps, SOB. How long till itclear?

GERD. It can take many days to weeks to recover from eating poorly. Have you spoken to your MD about what food to avoid: are you gluten free & on a low carb diet? This will help you heal faster & not get these symptoms. Drink plenty of water & stick with eating plenty of green leafy veggies, and low-inflammatory foods. Consult with us if you have further questions. Read more...

I keep having occasional pale stool: did abdominal ultrasound, did several blood test (for liver, pancreas and more) all normal. Could it be gerd?

No. Pale stools with normal labs and ultrasound usually are not worrisome and most likely represent rapid transit in the intestine. "gerd" or gastroesophageal reflux is an irritation of the upper digestive system often causing the symptom of heartburn and does not usually affect bowel movements. Read more...
Not likely. Gerd (gastro esopageal reflux disease), has to do with reflux of acid into the esophagus. This has heartburn, regurgitation, nausea, dysphagia, and bleeding, among other things. But not pale stool. Problems with the pancreas might do this. Pancreatic cancer can have clay-colored stools. Unless this presents with other signs and symptoms, it would be hard to say what it is without more tests. Read more...
