Hi I am new to the boards.
I was diagnosed with GERD about 3 years ago. I was getting dizzy spells, chest pains, lump in throat with lots of mucus and shortness of breath,but never heart burn. My family doctor did every test they could then sent me to the cardiologist, he did more tests. All test where ok. I ended up going to the ER one night from pain in my chest. Again nothing wrong, they referred me to the GI Doc and he scoped me top and bottom. He told me I have a hiatal hernia and GERD and put me on prevacid. My dizziness went away as did the chest pains. Currently I am on nexium and find it to be to strong, I get heart burn for the first time so I went back to the prevacid which knocked it out.
Does or did anyone get dizzy from GERD??? If so anyone what would be the connection in GERD and being dizzy???
