    For the first 2 years that I suffered from CFS I had virtually no stomach problems. However, in April I had a 24 hour stomach virus and don´t seem to be able to get over it. My symtoms include a major loss of appetite, burning in the chest, a metalic taste in my mouth, pain where the stomach and esophagus join, and often a feeling of tightness around my whole chest as if I had just eaten a huge meal. Have any of you experienced these type symtoms?

    Yes, I have pretty bad Gerd. I also have a hiatal hernia that I might have to get fixed. My gerd was so bad it was even affected my respitory system. I have it a little more under control now.

    If I were you I would go to a good Gastroenterologist and see exactly what is going on. It does sound like Gerd but also people with gallbladder problems have similiar symtoms also.
