Frage von MaDgie0765: Are these typical GERD (acid reflux) symptoms? Has anyone here had GERD? should I go to the ER?
My doctor diagnosed me with acid reflux and prescribed me Omeprazole but it has been making me vomit and I have been taking an over the counter antacid that has been helping a lot but doesn’t last very long. I am 22 years old and a former smoker but have been smoke free for 5 months and never plan on smoking again (the thought disgusts me now). I have one right kidney because I was born with only one. I’m concerned because I have been having chest pain due to heart burn and it makes my arms ache and I had ear pain as well. I also went out on Friday and drank one beer and ate greasy bar food and that night I was so sick i couldn’t sleep and I threw up 3 times. My symptoms have been much better since yesterday because I have been eating healthier and practically chugging the antacid ever hour. I’m just so tied up with college finals I don’t have time to see the doctor, but I’m really worried about my symptoms cause they are interfering with my ability to function. Have you had GERD? Did you get cured? do you think I will need surgery? could this be another stomach disease as well? when should i know to go to the ER?

Many doctors say its GERD when they see symptoms like this because rarely is it something different because they get cases like this all the time. My doctor also said I have GERD and he prescribed me a medication that didn’t help and so I’m still trying to figure out what’s wrong with me and think it might be something with my liver. But to me, it sounds like you got a gallbladder issue. I would highly recommend seeing a specialist and getting special ultra sound tests done on your gallbladder. Not to scare you, but you might have to get it removed. I know several people who went through what you are going through and they got their gallbladder removed. I don’t know what the ER will do for you, but only you can make the call on if you should go or not. I do think it’s a gallbladder issue. But definitley go to your doctor and tell him this, because he might have wrongfully diagnosed you. I hope you get better. Best of luck.
