Acid reflux

Hi All

I know I have read something about this. Does it cause pain in the upper back, just under the shoulder blades? If not does anyone have any idea what it could be? It's painful and making me breathless.

Thanks in advance

Hi Patsyann24 .

Sometime back my daughter had terrible acid reflux which caused incredible, strong pain between her shoulder blades. It turned out she had two ulcers in her stomach. So, yes I think acid reflux because back pain. However, I don't know if that's the case with you. I think getting it checked out would probably be best. I hope you feel better very soon.

Thanks all for your replies. I have started using gavisvon and am thinking about upping my oramorph as only taking 5ml twice a day for breathlessness and the pain is certainly making that worse. Will discuss with my doctor when I next see him in a couple of weeks.

Hope you're all as well as possible

Cheers Patsy
