I have a lot of chest pain that's been ruled non cardiac. My doctor says it's gerd, and I'm taking protonix for it. I stay dizzy/lightheaded a lot, and have really bad headaches. Sometimes my dizziness gets worse after I eat. I am not diabetic, and have had every test under the sun. I did have an endoscopy about 3 years ago, and nothing was there then. But now the chest pain is awful, and the dizziness is awful. Could this be an ulcer or something? The chest pain is in between my breasts, and it's kind of a burning type hurting, but I also get really short of breath with it sometimes. I've had all of the cardiac tests that's possible, so it's not heart related. Any help would be appreciated.

Re: question

I was wondering if the protonix could be causing side affects. Have you been on other meds for the GERD. Maybe you need a different med.

Re: question

I have tried Nexium, and Prevacid. I'm currently off of everything right now. I have to get some more. I have been like this for about 4 months now. I have had dizziness for the last 6 years off and on, but now it's really bad, and this is a different kind of dizziness. Just wondering if any digestive problems can cause any kind of dizziness.
