Common Questions and Answers about Fainting and gerd

fainting

Avatar n tn Cervical spondylitis and ear problems also cause dizziness on changing the position of the neck. Other causes are anemia (in your case this is there), GERD, hypoglycemia or low sugar and some endocrine problems. Some types of seizures too behave in this way. I think you should discuss this with your doctor. Get your blood pressure checked. Also you may need to get some tests done. It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage.
Avatar n tn Endocrine problems, such as an underactive thyroid (called hypothyroidism), overactive thyroid (called hyperthyroidism), adrenal insufficiency (called Addison's disease), low blood sugar levels, and in some cases, diabetes, may lead to hypotension and hence lightheadedness and an off balance feeling. Certain types of epilepsies and seizures too can cause similar symptoms. If she has an accompanying headache then you must also look at benign intracranial hypertension.
Avatar n tn Hi,sorry to hear your not feeling well.Have you been to your doctor or neurologist about these symptoms?Some of what you describe are panic attacks,being through a traumatic experience does some times bring on fear or afraid of dying.You need to make an appointment with your doctor or neurologist.Having a pinched nerve in your neck does not cause,these feelings.Or having arthritis in your neck.Make an appointment as possible though.You may need an MRI of your brain,or catscan of your brain.
1304732 tn?1273112485 Interestingly Oraltech Labs specializes in bad breath but considers Bad Breath, Halitosis, Post Nasal Drip, Dry Mouth, GERD and heartburn as a single health issue and have you treat all of them in your own home by yourself. It mentioned most people who complain of one problem actually had most or all of the other problems but didn’t know it. So it gets you to attend to all of them as missing one usually results in the return of the other.
Avatar n tn Hi there, I have been told by a Cardiologist and GI doc that acid reflux can irritate the vagus nerve and bring episodes of PAC's and PVC's on. PAC's and PVC's are extra heartbeats - even though we experience them as missed beats and "heart hickups" and this can be the "thubs" that you describe. Even though it is very irritating, it is absolutely harmless and very common.
370181 tn?1428180348 But, I have also heard that GERD can and often does cause jaw pain. Now when I have a GERD episode with some jaw pain, I sit on the side of the bed, phone in hand, wondering if this is just GERD or a heart attack. I will be discussing all this with my doctor at my next appointment, but I often have more trust in those who actually deal with an issue rather than someone who has just had to read about it.
Avatar m tn You need to get examined to rule out a few things such as low blood pressure, postural hypotension (fall in blood pressure, cervical spinal nerve compression, hypoglycemia (low blood sugar), severe anemia, an underactive thyroid (called hypothyroidism), overactive thyroid (called hyperthyroidism), adrenal insufficiency (called Addison's disease), GERD or gastric reflux, and internal ear infections. Do discuss this with your doctor and get yourself examined. Take care!
Avatar n tn ,she has decreased appetite especially in the evening and she only weighs 42 pounds and is 42 inches tall. I spoke with her doctor and he suggested we increase her medicine to 15mg twice a day. I have put her on a bland diet as well. She is also on zyrtec for allergies which she takes every pm. Please help I do not know what else to do for her. I don't know if we are following the right path for treating her. If she needs to have some tests done to find out what is truly her problem.
933063 tn?1244616647 All morning before I was stressed, worrying that I am not yet ready but when I got into my job I began to calm down and enjoy my work. Everything became very calm and slow and I was enjoying the pace, then by mid day I started to get heat rash like feelings throughout my body, then I felt sick. I went to the toilet and a faint spell came on. I was out for about twenty minutes before I came round all I could feel was my head pounding. I was taken home by my boss, then I slept for four hours.
Avatar f tn I fainted at a train station, did my usual throwing up thing but I didn’t really come round from the fainting for a good hour. So an ambulance was called and after not being able to wake me and my blood pressure being ‘in my boots’ as they called it, they rushed me to hospital. Though of course by the time I was seen (4 hour wait) I was absolutely fine desperate for something to eat. The only thing they could advise was when I got home I should see a gynaecologist.
Avatar f tn For the past 2 years I have been randomly woken up by sharp pains in my lower abdomen. It causes me to faint and the time I am passed out is getting more frequent & longer (my husband tells me how long I stayed out) I have depression, anxiety (within last year), heart palpations, restless legs, nearsighted decreased drastic in last 12 months, tired, insomia, moody, irratiable, hair loss, gerd (within last year), secondary PTSD (husbands war trauma).
Avatar n tn The episodes could be due to postural hypotension (blood pressure falling with change of position), internal ear problems, cervical spondylitis, anemia, GERD, hypoglycemia or low sugar, stress and anxiety and some endocrine problems. In your case I would look at anemia, hypoglycemia, endocrine problems and GERD first. Stress and anxiety definitely add to the problem. However first get the above medical conditions excluded. GERD is common with steroids.
1102792 tn?1285928860 smoking constricts all ur veins and vessels and makes u feel worse and will also trigger flares of GERD. See a GI Dr...and get on a modified diet...and lifestyle so u can begin to feel better...we do have some articles in the Health Pages with tips on lifestyle changes...such as stop smoking, no eating late at night, no lying down for 3 to 4 hrs after eating....avoid spicy foods, acidic foods, sodas, alcohol......http://www.medhelp.
11251831 tn?1416585126 I think you have two things occurring here. First you have the GERD, and second, because of the GERD and your belief that it isn't, I do believe you are having anxiety because of it. Anxiety can create heart attack like symptoms, dizziness, forgetfulness and brain fogginess. The GERD can create the chest discomfort and pressure under/below sternum bloating, burping, burning, etc. Please don't be afraid or skeptical about anxiety, it happens to many people.
Avatar m tn Hi, im eric and im 22 recently i have been having fainting like episodes and i think it may be my blood pressure? i am also diagnosed with GERD. About a year ago i was driving my dad home from the dentist about 30 mins down the road i started feeling very anxious and then felt like i was going to faint at the wheel i pulled over and quickly passed completely out, i recall my ears where ringing very loud and i could hardly comprehend my surroundings.
Avatar n tn I feel like im going to faint whether i eat or not, i get really shaky, i feel naseuated almost all day and like im going to vomit but havent yet. I've had on and off migraines for two days. I am a pretty healthy woman, drink lots of water, and am not over or under in weight. It just started all of the sudden, I am not pregnant and I do not drink alcohol or do drugs. I just got back from vacation, where i did hit higher altitudes than normal. Please help!!!
Avatar n tn Abdominus rectus and calf) .Severe watery diarrhoea .Hypotension and occasional fainting. Symptoms subside within hours of takin omeprazole. Lasts for 4-5 days. Tendency to overeat, no maintained food habits, no smoking or alcohol, all investigations done including upper GI endoscopy that showed no complications, blood investigations all normal including H.Pylori Ab absent. Also afer taking Omeprazole he complains of polyuria.
Avatar f tn Some alcohols cause severe acidity and acid reflux or GERD. This can also cause fainting attacks. “Vertigo can be caused by disorders of body parts that are involved in maintaining balance: • Inner ear • Brain stem and cerebellum • Nerve tracts connecting the brain stem and cerebellum or within the brain stem Inner Ear Disorders: Most commonly, vertigo results from motion sickness.
Avatar n tn However the symptoms I have are very similar to a previous illness when I was prescribed some Pariet. I am trying the Pariet again but was curious if these symptoms were consistent with GERD, and if there is any connection with urination?
Avatar n tn I don't really feel short of breath but like I have to breathe harder. I have heard that GERD can flare asthma and I was diagnosed with GERD as a child. I had to have a bunch of tests done to confirm I had an over production of acid in my stomach. I don't remember what they did for it but I kind of outgrew it. I am 32 now, female, no significant family history for heart disease (paternal grandfather had a MI around age 60) but no other family history.
Avatar f tn Avoid too much of tea, coffee, smoking and spicy food. Anemia too can cause night sweats. GERD or gastric reflux too should be looked into. I think you should discuss this with your doctor. Also you may need to get some tests done. It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage. Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar n tn Oh yeah and I get the shakes and literally have to lay on the bathroom floor and hope I dont go to the bathroom on the bathroom floor it gets so bad.
Avatar n tn This isn't a cure for the cause of what's making all this happen, but my belief is that i have some sort of internal blockage again that causes the cramps, and because of the fizzyness of the japps that its forcing the food past this blockage and relieving me of the terrible pain and stopping me from fainting and smashing my head and face to pieces. I really hope this can bring relief to people suffering as i know how bad these episodes make you feel, not only physically but mentally.
Avatar f tn I usually just send the former doc a request of records for personal use, then take them to the new dr and the new dr can then do what he/she wants with them That sounds alot like me - I've had many drs either ignore me or tell me nothing is wrong even when fainting and hitting my head on a wall.
Avatar n tn She had an endoscopy and was diagnosed with GERD and gastritis. The specialist said that her stomach was inflamed and so was her esopha. where it meets the stomach. She tested negative for H-Pylori. At night, she will have joint aches and also is experiencing increasing frequency of a sore throat. She has been on Tagamet [prescription strength], and is on non-containing NSAID pain relievers that are prescription strength.
Avatar f tn I'll comment on the entire thing, but just a side note... I too never had gastro, reflux, or GERD issues and had a gastric sleeve done 6 years ago. And after a lot of testing and getting incredibly sick.... we discovered that my sleeve was just so small it created so much pressure and forced my acid up. It also gave me a hiatal hernia. It's very common among people who have the sleeve done...so keep that in mind!
Avatar n tn Endocrine problems, such as an underactive thyroid (called hypothyroidism), overactive thyroid (called hyperthyroidism), adrenal insufficiency (called Addison's disease), low blood sugar levels, and in some cases, diabetes, may lead to hypotension and hence lightheadedness and an off balance feeling. Certain types of epilepsies and seizures too can cause similar symptoms. If you have an accompanying headache then you must also look at benign intracranial hypertension.
Avatar f tn The other possibility is severe acidity with GERD. Normal GERD will not cause dizziness if under control. However a person with severe uncontrolled acidity or when such a person is hungry or his stomach is empty except for the acid, he may feel dizzy. The reverse flow of contents of the stomach cause a series of neurochemical transmissions, which cause dizziness. It is also related to changing pressure in the cochlear canals of the ear during this process. Discuss this with your doctor.
Avatar m tn I would also suggest that you should consentrate on finding the cause for your hypotention and POTS does fit and it can be a dysrythmia coming from the electrical nodes from your heart and not GERD related. Prior to my GERD symptoms and diagnoses I had SVT treated with Cardiac Ablation and had 2 open-heart surgeries for sick mitral valve. Sometimes Doc's misdiagnose the symptoms as being heart-related or GERD or vice versa.
