Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. We understand your feelings. GERD or increased gastric acid is a condition where stomach acid which is destructive to be able to digest food, ascend the esophagus or even the oral cavity. This causes symptoms such as heartburn, tongue feels sour, chest feels hot, palpitations, shortness of breath, feels something is up in the throat, pain in the chest, teeth become damaged, bloating, bad breath, dry cough, especially in at night, pain when swallowing and an increase in the amount of saliva.
The doctor who treats you, concludes that you have GERD possibly due to symptoms of chest pain that move between the left and right, and the absence of examination results or other symptoms that support heart or lung disease. Even so, from your story, indeed other symptoms such as the body always feels cold, heavy head, achy neck, stiffness and so on are not symptoms that are common in people with GERD.
So we suspect, regardless of whether you actually suffer from GERD or not, that there may be more than one condition that you are experiencing right now, such as migraine, or tension headaches, cluster headaches, bacterial or viral infections, hormonal disorders thyroid, and it is not impossible that there is a role for psychological disorders.
For the x-ray or ultrasound itself, this is not the ultimate examination that can tell all kinds of diseases. Furthermore there is not even a single examination, and probably never will, which can tell all types of diseases. All examinations have their respective designations, and their advantages and disadvantages. Everything is used in his time, such as in headaches, if it is caused by a brain tumor, it will be seen on X-ray examination or CT scan, but if it is caused by a migraine, nothing will. Likewise, ultrasound, if there is a woman who has menstrual cycle disorders due to certain structural abnormalities in her female organs, ultrasound can find out, but if it is due to stress or the influence of her mind, ultrasound cannot detect it.
In essence, to find out what conditions you have now, an absolute check is performed. Because the symptoms are very diverse and may be caused by more than one disease, the specialist is still unclear. Our advice is that you can benefit more from going to a general practitioner, so that later your general practitioner guides you to a specialist if you should be treated according to the examination, even if your general doctor feels difficult. If you still want to see a specialist doctor, then control your specialist who examined you beforehand and tell him that your complaints did not improve. Your specialist doctor will evaluate the possibility of disease and medication, and you can also ask if you need help from another specialist.
Meanwhile, there is no need to worry too much, don't stress because it can actually make things worse, get enough rest, avoid smoking, consumption of healthy foods like vegetables and fruit, and if there are certain mental conditions that you think contribute to your present condition, don't feel free to convey it to your doctor because all information can help in your healing. So, hopefully answering your question.
