    Red face heart palpitations and gerd

    Anyone have heart palpitations with gerd? I have been dealing with these symptoms for years. Scares the crap out of me. I also have esphagus spasms. What a combination. I would appreciate knowing I am not alone. Oh and how could I forget, I have constant burping during these episodes.
    Thanks

    Hi Brownie,

    I have the same symptoms you do. I've been to specialists and they just tell me to take my med. (Nexium)

    Twice my spasms got so bad that I had 2 hour vomiting episodes. (major yucky)Both times it was while I was eating meat.

    You're not alone!

    Thanks Lyli, it really helps to know I am not alone. The worst time for me is at night, when I have a spell. It seems much scarier at night. It has helped a lot to read the posts here.
    Thanks again,
    Brownie

    Night is bad for me, too. It's the lying down thing. Can you sleep propped up a bit? This helps me. (Also not eating after 6:00P.M.)

    Take care,
    Lyli

    have either one of you gotten a diagnosis from a doctor? I have symptoms as brownie and ready to see another gas. doctor for a second opinion. The first one gave me protonix which may have complicated my digestive system since I now have stomach spasms, cramps, and gas.

    You are not alone. I had those spasms, and I couldn't convince any doctor to help me until I began spitting up blood. At that point, I didn't know what that feeling was (the spasms), and I was convinced the swollen glands in my neck and the tightness in my chest was some dreaded disease. The endoscopy revealed severe changes in my esophagus, and I had the nissan funduplocation (spelling) surgery.

    It was a godsend. The spasms didn't stop for about two months after that, but since then (1996), I haven't had any troubles. I only had the stomach flu once, and not being able to vomit was pretty awful, but a trip to the emergency room solved that.

    I'll be happy to answer any questions. I encourage all of you to continue pursuing this with your doctors. Don't get to where you're throwing up blood before they do something.

    Lynn

    I don't usually have pain with mine. But it is the oddest feeling. It feels like something is jumping inside my chest. I also have constant burping during the spells. I usually have them about an hour after I lay down at night. It is so nice to be able to talk to others with the same symptoms.

    Seems as though I am another with the same symptoms! I have the esophagus spasms sometimes and it feels like a golf ball in stuck in my chest! Luckily, most of my symptoms act up with stress...athough I have had enough of that lately...lol!

    Hope everyone is well!

    PS - Been posting on other sections, but this is my first time on the Digestive Disorder section...

    I wonder if that is my problem. Stomach thing undiagnosed for a few years. Started as bowels and still carries on but now I have alot of pressure in my upper abd. I also have had heart palpitations for years. Now I get pressure/tightness in my throat, fist sized tightness in my upper abd. like a spasm. Sometimes feels like my throat is closing up. I'm on Cimetidine, I don't know if it really is doing anything. It's a scary thing. The doc did mention he thought GERD and Hiatal Hernia. My mom had that.

    well your symptoms certainly sound the same as mine. it is a very scary thing, especially since it usually happens at night to me.

    Mine seem to be nearly constant now. Today for example it has been just awful. My throat is tight and my upper abd feels bloated. Putting extra pressure on my abd is very uncomfortable. I have heard this is related to hiatus hernia. I have also heard that increasing pressure in the abd would make this worse. So I"m wondering then, exercise would increase pressure. There are many times I feel winded or short of breath. I can't make it through my dance class. The symptons are worse and especially if I happen to eat before I go. Do you think the shortness of breath is related. I also know, I'm better off if I don't eat.

    I know that I have to eat small amounts of food at a time, but it is also bad if my stomach is empty. I have had the shortness of breath a few times. Do you have the constant burping?

    Constant burping. If I eat I eat small amounts. As I mentioned I am on Cimetidine. I don't think I've ever had refief from it. I got a sample of Pepcid Complete from the pharmacy and took it yesterday. What a difference. Going to get some more today.

    I take Achphex, and it had helped the pain tremendously. Can I take Pepcid Complete with the Aciphex? Also have you tried the digestive enzymes that I have seen several posts about on here?
