understanding my GERD chest pain diagnosis?

In September I went to my doctor because of chest pain discomfort in breathing. He diagnosed me with GERD, gastritis and esophagitis. He also said that my inactivity and extra weight was probably making the GERD worse. He then sent me on my way without answering any questions. He is a good doctor but never gives much time and I am slow to ask questions.

Can somebody tell me what the gastritis and esophagitis is from. Does it mean I have an infection or can it be because of irritation from the acid? He never gave a prescription for antibiotics just some medication for the reflux.

I also started using the elliptical machine at my friend's place and have lost 13 lbs so far. The only thing I hate is that I get reflux when I exercise too and I get  breathing problems. I think it is from all the movement.

RE: understanding my GERD chest pain diagnosis?

Its good to see you are taking the recommendations so seriously. For the gastritis and esophagitis, it is probably just irritation from stomach acid if your doctor didn't prescribe any antibiotics. To be safe, it would make sense to call and clarify if there was an intent to provide antibiotics or not.

I personally wouldn't exercise with something that involves so much bouncing. Try other activities like walking or swimming if you can.

Don't avoid calling your doctor for fear of bothering him. Gastritis can be caused by a H. Pylori infection and those are nasty. My wife's friend's husband had an infection that was only discovered when he had strong stomach pains. It took him a long time to heal and he had real discomfort the whole time.

jinjin, as long as I can run, I am going to stick with it because I seem to have success losing weight this way. The elliptical doesn't cause so much up and down movement so it is not so bad. Thanks for the other suggestions. I may add those too or use them alternatively if the running becomes unbearable.

mainstreet, I did call the doctor's office. The receptionist relayed my message and I guess that the inflammation was from acid damage. So, at least I don't have to risk an ulcer too.

Thanks all for the help.

If you can get your weight down that way, good for you. I know I would have trouble losing weight that way.
