Exercise induced heartburn

Common Questions and Answers about Exercise induced heartburn


Avatar m tn No matter what I do, nothing seems to affect the intensity of my biggest symptom, exercise induced reflux. It is not acknowledged by any doctor or website, but my LES is so weak that any slight amount of exercise sends acid straight up my throat. It used to just slow me down while I would play sports, eventually stopping me from competing in sports entirely.
Avatar m tn I’m a 38 year old male and have been experiencing exercise induced chest pain for the last four years. The pain generally begins with sudden exertion (running for a bus) or mild exertion that’s gradually increased (moving from the easy part of an elliptical trainer routine to the really hard part). I’ve noticed that the pain usually hits at about 145-150 heart beats per minute. The pain manifests in the upper left quadrant of my chest.
Avatar n tn Yes - I've started to get them, and for some reason, I don't really notice them during the exercise (running to about 80% of peak HR), but they definitely appear post-exercise (usually several hours later). Have thought it might be dehydration/electrolyte imbalance, or some sort of vitamin deficiency. Have cut out alcohol (noticed it seemed to bring this about more consistently) and am trying multivitamin. That said, is vigorous exercise still ok?
Avatar n tn I had one pathologist say it was a sign of Hodgkin's Disease, and I had one say that maybe it could be from gerd, but my Gastroenterologist has never heard of this from any of his patients. Google alcohol induced pain, most of it is regarding Hodgkin's Disease.
Avatar m tn I read the tag about stomach pains after tennis and my syptoms sound very similar. I am in good shape and exercise regulairly, and it only happens on random days spread by weeks of no problems, and it only happens when I push myself to my limits. I have asthma, but I can outrun any person in my school so I do not think that is a problem. When it happens I usually can't sit still and it feels as if someone is driving a knife into my stomach.
685122 tn?1226907363 The risk from your PVC's causing V-Tach in a normal healthy heart is not something that typically occurs. Exercise induced PVC's does not always indicate heart disease. There are many people who notice an increase of these ectopic beats during exercise. Did you have an echocardiogram while you were in the hospital?
Avatar m tn The anxiety makes me exhausted, the atenolol worsens that, I feel lethargic, my heart rate runs in the 50's 60's at rest (over the last 2 yrs my heart rate started dropping from the 80-70's to the 50-60's and last week it was in the 40-50's after I had an exercise induced heart rate of 222! Heart rate is back up to 50-60's when awake mostly. My quality of life is awful with these anxiety attacks and racing heart. They last hours and wear me out.
Avatar n tn Several months ago I started an exercise program to lose weight and improve my general health with the local YMCA. It involves strength training and swimming. My resting heart rate has lowered from over 100 to about 85, and I have been able to increase the weights on the nautilus machines, I am also able to do more swimming and less water walking although I still find it impossible to do a 50 freestyle yet, nonetheless I feel I have made progress.

Avatar n tn Hi, You should consult your chest specialist or doctor to rule out exercise induced asthma. Do you have any other symptoms? Are you on any medications currently? Have you tried taking inhalaer medications for your complaints? Have they helped? Do you have any other symptoms like breathlessness, reflux symptoms or heartburn or nasal symptoms like nasal discharge etc. Do you smoke?
Avatar n tn The airways are more likely to narrow in response to triggers, such as irritants, infection, exercise, heartburn, cold air, or allergies. The tendency for twitchy airways is an inherited trait. However, the degree of twitchiness varies naturally over time. It can also be dependent upon recent exposures. For example, it may be more positive during the spring if the person is allergic to tree pollens and more positive in the fall if allergic to weeds.
Avatar m tn I thought it might be asthma but I did a test where I exhale through a tube for 10 seconds or so and they said my lungs were above average. Then I thought it might be exercise induced asthma, but I never cough or wheeze at all, it's just the inability to inhale fully and pain. Any ideas?
Avatar m tn Around June 2010 I developed LPR symptoms but no heartburn or stomach complaints. I had recently increased daily dosage of the benzodiazepine clonazepam to 1.5 mg from 1 mg. I had sore throat and chronic cough. After about 4 days of 40mg prilosec these symptoms evaporated. The symptoms always returned unless I maintained a 20mg dose of prilosec daily. I eventually learned on my own that benzos can relax the LES and UES, contributing to reflux, especially at night.
Avatar n tn have you been tested for Exercise induced asthma?? try that out. also... try not to eat before exercising if it is heartburn or chew some tums before you work out.
Avatar n tn I have no cardiac symptoms (no hypertension, palpitations), and the pain occurs without apparent immediate cause (not exercise-induced). My regular physician says he doesn't think it's cardiac, since I have none of the usual risk factors or indications. Could this be GERD pain?
Avatar n tn the linctus didn't help and after going to a private doctor he diagnosed me with asthma (based on the fact i was previously diagnosed with exercise-induced asthma and some wheezing) and nebulized me. The cough has never returned. The tightness in my chest has returned though and sore, painful throat. It is because of this I will return to the doctor in an attempt to see if I have pneumonia, bronchitis or something horrible.
Avatar m tn But a few years ago -- even though I was rarely noticing heartburn -- an upper-GI endoscopy showed I had GERD-induced erosive esophagitis, something I definitely don't want because it increases risks. At that time I had cut my Prilosec OTC back to 20mg every-other-day., and had virtually no heartburn. But doc said that I should go back to daily, even though I wasn't noticing reflux symptoms.

Avatar f tn I just wish she was here already! My hips hurt, the only thing that doesnt give me heartburn is salad, im a beached whale with fat feet and hands. I am 100% miserable and i still have a little over a week left. :( it feels like shes trying to push into my groin and not into my pelvis. Im still stuck at 2-3 cm dilated and shes still at a-3 position. :( ive tried walking tried an exercise ball tried sex. Nothing works! :( Sorry to vent, im just so miserable now i just want to cry.
Avatar n tn Next, I have to get a chest x-ray so he can look at my lungs and heart and I'm also going to get a PFTS with methacoline challenge to check for asthma/exercise induced asthma. We'll see what happens. If they all turn out ok then I guess I'll have to deal with just having naturally poor cardiovascular health. I'm enterting a national competition in November and my biggest concern is having poor stamina during my routine. Plus, just training is very hard because of my shortness of breath.
Avatar f tn You can ask. You can say you're uncomfortable going over more than a week and would like to hear the real risks versus benefits of induction for you with your personal circumstances. (If I was 17 and got pregnant easily and was very fit that is lower risk than over 35). They want you to get the best outcome and part of that is you feeling comfortable that the choice is given and right for you.
Avatar m tn Comorbidities Food allergies may coexist with asthma, atopic dermatitis, eosinophilic esophagitis, and exercise-induced anaphylaxis. Food allergy is associated with severe asthma, increased risk of severe exacerbations, and increased hospitalization rates. Food allergies disrupt the quality of life. Food allergy is not a common trigger of eczema in adults.
Avatar n tn There is an entity called exercise induced Asthma, here as the person starts exercise, the changes in the environmental air breathed in trigger an attack of asthma, causing cough and breathlessness. Have yourself evaluated for the same. This can be detected by a spirometry test. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar n tn After relatively hard exercise (about one hour of bike riding), I often get throat rightness, particularly on the right side, trouble swallowing, difficulty in fully inhaling, and what feels like sinus congestion--feels as if there is mucus in my nose I cannot get out. I have been diagnosed with exercise-indiced asthma--take Symbicort and Albuterol, as well as reflux, which I control by diet.
726698 tn?1249785317 On average I will go #2 ,4- 6 times a day, accompanied by really bad abdominal cramping. I also suffer from insomnia, and have regular heartburn problems. At night, sometimes I'll have abdominal pain localized to the right side. I've seen my doctor about it, and she doesn't seem to be all that concerned, which really bothers me. I feel like nobody cares, my quality of life *****, and I'm sick of being ignored.
Avatar n tn Dear Friends, If you are unable to get help from your internist (or primary care physician), consider going to a lung specialist, known as a pulmonlologist, who can order simple lung function tests known as spirometries to help determine whether you have asthma and/or exercise-induced asthma. There are effective medications to help asthma.
Avatar m tn The cardiologist I saw told me that I should not worry about pain after exercise, only pain during exercise, especially if it goes away right after stopping. My concern, of course, is still the chest pain. I was just able to make another appt with a cardiologist and will insist on an angiogram just to be sure.
Avatar f tn websites and they seem to keep coming back with MS in the top three if not first. only behind asthma, which i know i have(exercise induced and controlled) and hypothyriodism which I know I don't have. so please help me to get my doctor down the right path, or what type of doctor i need to see. i am really tired of dealing with all of the symptoms, and they are just getting more persistent, if anyone has any help to offer me i will be very grateful. Thank you.
