  • You must be thinking reflux with the timing, the pain is probably referred. Did you consider cardiac causes? Unlikely considering age, but possibly a steal syndrome. Only other thoughts are possibly Achalasia or Crohn's.Post when you figure it out if you don't mind. Do you have any more Hx? Like you have r/o gallbladder dz, right?
