Warfarin and gerd

Common Questions and Answers about Warfarin and gerd


If this has been going on for years, and the pain is that miserable, please consider telling your doc that you'd like to know the state of your esophagus and stomach first-hand via an endoscopy. And if you haven't been evaluated for H. pylori, add that request to the list as well. Many people with acid reflux issues complain of heart 'skips' and flutters. You've got a good cardiologist. Follow his suggestion.
RA, Degenerative Disc Disease (2 disc removed in neck and 3 in lower back) , Vascular problems in the legs, GERD and stomach ulcers, High Blood Pressure, High Cholestral (allergic to statins, so not on anything last test showed 339) I also have 2 tears in my right shoulder with spurs, and recently I was diagnosed with mitochrondrial disease. My meds are: Warfarin 6 mg.
To tell you the truth, there's nothing left that I can eat....between diabetes and watching blood sugar levels, and taking the blood thinner warfarin because of the a-fib, and a statin ( no grapefruit). For every yay, there's a nay. I was wondering if anyone out there feels like the palps build up over a few days and then they break into an episode of a-fib or some other equally aggraving arrhythmia?
The procedure (July 25th) caused a PE which has since resolved and I am on warfarin now for the next few months.
I think taking steps to try and clear up the h pylori will hopefully help but other than that maybe try some otc meds for the gerd and indigestion and see if that helps. Finally do your best to manage any stress in your life. Stress can be very subtle sometimes so just take some time to evaluate how you handle everyday situations and see if there is any tendency to stress. Take care and I do hope that your afib settles down.
Clinical studies show that Pradaxa may prevent more strokes than Coumadin (warfarin) in patients with atrial fibrillation who have a hard time keeping their INR within the target range. The major benefit is that patients on Pradaxa do not need monitoring or INR checks like those taking Coumadin. Pradaxa and Coumadin are very similar in regards to bleeding risk as a possible side effect. About 30% of patients in clinical studies experienced heartburn or GERD do to Pradaxa.
I''m fine now after stopping both but I think I will start the turmeric back up now and not the diclofenac which is hard on my GERD anyway. I was recommended a product from the whole foods store by an herbalist called EHB by integrative Therapeutics, inc. It has standardized echinacosides, hydrastine, and berbering for immune-support. Have you heard of it or have any view on it. It also has bomelain in it. What is your opinion??
My Husband has GERD and he gets the same thing you described, and he avoids bending over as it does make it worse, he chews Tums and swears they make it better, You have had a bad time recently on loosing your Husband I hope you have some kind Family members to visit you, sounds like you have been through a lot reading your Post and my guess is you are very strong, maybe your question would get a better answer if put into the Doctor Forum.
I meant to say digestive enzyme supplements to help break down fats, carbohydrates, and proteins. My mother no longer suffers GERD or LPR taking both supplements with meals. Good luck with diagnosis.
I have been to about 30 doctors- including ENT's allergists, neurologists, chiropracters, opthamologists. psychologists, dentists and everything else u can think of. All CT scans, MRI of brain and blood work keep coming back clean and ok. Nothing I try seems to work. There was a period of time about 3 and a half years ago that the symptoms lifted for about 4 months and then it returned full force.
My thyroid was destroyed with radioactive iodine and I, of course, became hypothyroid, and gaind 40 lbs. My levels are now fine and I do not have diabetes, but I have acquired a multitude of other problems, including weight that I lose (some) and regain. My hysterectomy was due to a uterine prolapse. I, of course, am very nervous about this new development and I am concerned that i heard nothing about it from my cardiologist.
Thanks for your reply. You may guess I am in fact an Aussie. Bushwalking is mostly walking on formed tracks in our National Parks with a bit of rock hopping here & there. And yes, I am on that wretched Warfarin, however my INR level is kept around 2.5. The maker of my mechanical valve (ONX) state they are investigating if an INR of 2.0 might be sufficient. Your Afib sounds similar to a friend of mine. He is amazing the way he copes with it.
I actually get the same thing, quite often, and it actually runs to the left side of my head (above the jaw). I suffer from GERD and get esophageal spasms. Sometimes that pain will last several hours. I have no doubt it is the vagal nerve. There really is nothing else it could be. I also get the sick feeling when I'm hungry. I've been on prevacid for over 10 years, tried others, but this works the best. I also have a hiatal hernia.
I go next month for 24-hour Holter and an Echo. I am also going to ask my doctor about GERD and the connection that this may have to the heart palpitations. I was really glad to read your post on this issue. Thanks for the comment....

During examining me, they asked about my leg cause I have DVT (I was extremely overweight and now losing weight) and later found there was a clot, so I was admitted into the hospital and am currently being treated for it and taking warfarin. However, I was told nothing of my chest or if I damaged my esophagus. They did do a chest x-ray and a cat scan on me. Would those tests determine if there is something wrong with my chest?
And, Feverfew should not be taken along with medications that thin the blood such as warfarin (heart medication), or Aspirin or NSAIDS unless your doctor has prescribed you Feverfew and knows you are taking such medications. In the case of Warfarin, if a doctor were to prescribe Feverfew I would still highly suggest consulting a second source such as another doctor (the prescribing doctor for the warfarin) or a pharmacist prior to starting the Feverfew if on a medication like Warfarin.
Apparently, irregular AF is more dangerous than continual AF because the irregular type causes clots, and subsequently strokes, so am on warfarin via my GP. Are you? and how do I get into your profile?
I hate tachycardia, so if I was plagued by SVT on top of these PVCs, fibromyalgia, sciatica, MAV, GERD, and the other list of ailments I have, I'd jump on a gurney and shove the cath in my OWN groin!
Yes I've gotton all 5 copies of his biopsy which shows Gerd and food allergy on the first two and just Gerd on the others. We where told he has erosive esophags and after 5 years he is to stay on medicine that dosn't work I did take him of the medicine and to see what happened and put he on this special juice I get, While he finally gained 11 pounds in almost 1 year which is great but the last biopsy stilled showned a ulcer in the esophagus.
Have you been to see a gastroenterologist about the possibility of acid reflux? I have GERD, and am going next week for an endoscopy to check things out. I hope this helps somewhat, as I know it is easier to say don't worry then to actually do it!
Have family history of gallbladder/liver cancer. Have been on warfarin due to Afib. Warfarin has been stopped at the moment. Have been on prevacid for several years due to GERD. Could prevacid have caused the polyps? More importantly: 1. I understand this type of surgery is very risky. Is this true? 2. How do you go about finding a good surgeon? (My gastroenterologist recommended one, but how do I know he's good)? 3. What types of questions should I be asking? 4.
I did have high readings for EBV and Herpes virus but no doctor was concerned about that saying almost everyone has had the virus. I did have to see an endo doc and she ran tests and has me on Vit D for Osteo. She also ran an IMMUMO FIX INTERP, SERUM, which I had never heard of. The results showed Immunofixation studies revealed TWO trace concentration band(s) migrating in the GAMMA region which appear(s) to type as IGG LAAMBDA monoclonal protein(s).
They had put me on Warfarin as well as a heart rhythm ...the SR stuff. I had a cardioversion done a month later and right away I could tell the difference between in and out of sinus and the calmness when in as well as how much easier it was to breath. I was in for around a week and one night I could feel it coming, and I was out. I was switched to Taxtia XT 300mg per day and had another cardioversion done, and that lasted maybe 2 weeks, and then back out again.
Last night I had a vibration thing happen in my chest off and on for about 2 hours. I am almost positive that my pulse was normal just fast (100-110). It was scary but I didn't panic and my breathing stayed normal. I have had a panic attack before (full on heart attack thinking kind) and this wasn't like that. I was just wondering if the heart can be spasming and yet not be arrythmic. Does that make sense? Is an anxiety attack and a panic attack the same thing?
Ever see how over the last few years this has become so common and the medical community now calls these diseases and attaches names to them like gerd, ibs, reflux etc.? For some that are lucky it may just be a case of modifying what they eat for a time and make some adjustments to help make a healthier lifestyle however for others I think it can be more complicated. We all carry around in us to varying degrees bacteria, viruses, parasites, yeast, mold etc.
I did tell the doc's I put her on some herbal stuff, not sure what they will actually say when we go, but we are keeping a close eye on her diabetes, blood pressure and warfarin levels. So far the numbers are good. I was some what worried about her warfarin levels so had them checked and they're staying steady! That is a big relief! Do you know of any other way other than by antibiotic use to rid the system of this nasty bacteria?
Hello everyone! The same thing happens to me. Just last week I discovered this rubbing sound that seems to be coming from my upper chest. I hold my breath but it sound like I'm breathing but I'm not, the sound is more audible when my mouth is open. It's scary and like some of you said you can't really hear it if there's a lot of noise around but my sister and my mom were able to hear it. If any of you find an answer please post it here. Thank you!!
After the blockage was discovered thanks to a persistent PCP, and the stent inserted, I had chest pain afterwards. Was re-catheterized, all the major arteries were given a clean bill of health, but was placed on a beta blocker. Terrible reaction to the first one, put on a second one, and finally my cardiologist took me off that one as well. Although I see some improvement, I still have chest "aches" on exertion.
