Hello - I have been diagnosed with GERD. My symptoms are a sharp pain (not burning) where the sternum ends in my chest. I have bloating and abdominal cramping with loose or 'not normal' bowel movements. I have had the following tests which were negative: Abdominal ultra sound, x-rays and blood work. My Dr. put me in Prilosec 6 days ago and it seemed to be working. Today, the pain is there again. It's a constant pain, like when someone presses on a bruise. The bloating is there and when I eat I get full very fast. I go the rest room about an hour after I eat and it is loose. I have had my gallbladder out and they ruled out a bile duct stone. Has anyone else had these symptoms, if so, what else could I be experiencing?
