My goodness! I cant believe this question is 4 years old with no anwser! Well I would say YES! Horrible acid reflux! Sad part is the doctors I've seen are so uneducated on what seems to me to be a "obvious" relation.

I think anyone with scoliosis and gerd (heartburn) should carefully watch not only what they eat (very very carefully) but there weight as well.

Its just what comes with the condition. So if anyone is suffering with gerd & has scoliosis should devise a diet that is GERD freindly & stay at a healthy weight.
