It is never a good idea to assume that one problem is related to the other. You should always consult with your physician to make sure the back pain is related to the reflux and get a professional diagnosis. When trying to treat yourself you can cause more harm than good. Some people may also assume the two are related if they have had reflux in the past, which caused them back pain as well. However, each time an episode occurs, you should always talk to your doctor and have him confirm the two are definitely related.
Has anyone out there with a Hiatus Hernia experienced what feels like heartburn in your back and left arm. I have been diagnosedwith a Hiatus Hernia and take 30mg of Lansoprazoleonce a day and 10 of Motilium 3 times a day. But it doesn’t seem to help the pain I have. I have had pain every single day for the past 2years and swapped between meds i.e omeprazole etc but nothing seems to work. I lot of the symptoms on research only states chest but I get it bad in my upper back around that knot thing in your kneck then it goes down my arm. Just wondered if anyone else has had this. Before I was diagnosed I thought I was dying I had seen every consultant you can imagine from heart,back brain to stomach. The docs seem to think now I know what it is I should feel less anxitey, well I don’t as still feel really bad pain every day and meds not working.
Hi, Thank you for your text. Its quite informative. I am a PhD student in Brazil. This issue started with me almost 2 years ago in Brazil and my life is horrible. I am originally from Pakistan. The doctors said you have some stress or something like that but I do not think I am any stress. I could not sleep sometimes and I have this discomfort almost 24 hours. from this source I do not know how can I manage it. Presently, doctor suggested me to take omeprazol for 6 months. I am taking omeprazol for last 2 months but nothing changed rather last night I had severe pain and today I visited hospital. The doctor prescribed domperidona to take after every 8 hours. Hoping for something good. May you suggest me anything else??.
You tummy does not swell up but it is excruciating painful for at least a week and for me this went on much longer so take the painkillers for a while – not anti-inflammatories at all even with Lanzopruzole as some doctors try to give you – this will irritate the scar tissue. Use Tramadol or Codeine and take laxatives Follow the instuctions about diet and be very careful to stay of a light liquid diet for as long as you can. No meat. Begin to love vegetable soups and carrot juice! Hope that helps.
