For about the last 10 months I have been suffering a slew of stomach issues. In February is was diagnosised with GERD after aspirating into my lungs (2x). Since then I get upper abdominal pain that radiates into my back and shoulders, goes from a burning type pain to stabbing. I will wake up and there is little to no discomfort, just slowly builds as the day goes on.
Seems to come whenever by after about 2wks. it goes away until it returns, whenever. Also accompanied by lots of throat clearing. Wondering if any one has any ideas. Taking nexium and domperidone for the stomach issues which help very little of late. Confused

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. GERD can be bothering and discomfort is severe. Diet and lifestyle adjustments are mainstay and needs supportive care . Antacids, losing weight and modifying diet helps. Visit our GERD health center for further guidance.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
