Acid reflux and menopause

Menopause and acid reflux
I am 52 and was told by a doc that he is pretty sure that I am in menopause. First of all the blood work shows that my hormones are normal. How is that possible? Second, I read that some ladies get really bad acid reflux when hormones drop. Over the past 2 weeks my acid reflux has gotten so bad (even with meds)my upper belly hurts and feels like I have a large knot in the middle. Has anyone else exp. this and if so how can I relieve the pain?

Menopause & Acid Reflux
I am 45 and am in menopause. I started having acid reflux issues for the first time this year. I also had the knot in the middle. Vitamins were feeling sharp going down. Gastrologist expanded the opening leading to the stomache and prescribed 20mg Omeprazole for the reflux.

OMG..i have this too, it feels like a pain/knot between my chest, sometimes I think it's my heart but I feel better after a belch. Not sure but my acid reflux is getting worse as I age.
