After 3 years of acid reflux I started to get chronic chest pain from it. Every-time I feel some acid in my esophagus the chest pain comes in very quickly. Why am I not just feeling the burning sensation but also the pain.
The pain slightly improves once I stretch and do some light exercise.
PPI's (Proton pump inhibitors) improve the pain dramatically.
When I take PPI's reguraly the pain goes away 100%. It seems that the acid backing up in my esophagus just irritates the lining so much it hurts as hell, not to mention that I have a damage already. I guess I'll have to stick with PPI's.
