Hi I have just joined the group. I have had IBS and GERD for about 20 years. Following an extremely stressful year I'm experiencing the worst flare up ever. I am constantly full of gas, nothing relieves it completely. The GERD is also a constant. I have pain in my right shoulder blade and feel as if I have a lump in my gullet when I swallow. All this leads my to thinking it's unrelated to my IBS and GERD as I haven't experienced these symptoms before, my stress levels are very high which isn't helping my IBS, I feel stuck in a loop. Does anyone have any advice please, I take 48mg Omeprazole daily.
