Me too, same thing.

I've even had episodes where I thought I was having a heart attack and diarrhea at the same time, profuse sweating, almost blacking out, feeling faint, and sometimes rather than a very rapid heart beat (I've counted it up to 160 or higher) I've had a few instances where my heart rate dropped as low as 40bpm.

I drink about 200 ounces of water a day, I cannot lie down flat or I feel like my esophagus "collapses onto itself" like a wet balloon (does that make sense?)... and definitely the gas is an issue and it causes distension and pressure UP into my thorax.

Very uncomfortable.
