Common Questions and Answers about Heartburn and quitting smoking

heartburn

2120637 tn?1336002977 The crazy part about all this is that I never considered all these symptoms to be part of quitting smoking. I thought the stomach flu was somehow lingering and spreading around my body in other ways and kept blaming all the symptoms I was having on the stomach virus and started getting the bad anxiety because I kept thinking it was still the stomach virus but knowing that stomach viruses don't last that long but thinking I must have caught a new strain with changing symptoms lol.
Avatar f tn I smoked for several years and wanted to quit while my wife was pregnant with our first son. I loved smoking, I enjoyed all aspects of it. I thought about quitting for about a month and thought about ways to taper off. This was way before patches, gum, ect one day I was by a pond and bent over and the pack of cigarettes fell out of my pocket and into the water. That was the last I smoked, it was hard for about 5 yrs not to give in.
Avatar f tn Quit smoking 14th of June, 2017 after feeling dizzy, almost falling until I rested for a while. Had been smoking weed since 2009. Drinking and smoking cigarettes as well but not too often with the cigs. Stopped smoking weed, cigs abd drinking all at once. Three days after, I felt angina pain and pain in my lungs. It's been almost three weeks now and I still feel pains occasionally but not as severe as before. Feeling abdominal pains as well. Getting very scared now.
Avatar f tn I know a bunch of people do it, but like someone else said, if you wouldn't put it in your childs mouth don't put it in yours. That is how I've gone through my pregnancy, i quit drinking, smoking cigs, and bud, and i refuse to take medicine unless i absolutely have to. Everyone is different, but almost everyone goes through morning sickness and make it through without weed. Pregnancy ***** hun and the sickness is just the beginning. Zofran helps but not much.

Avatar n tn Since quitting smoking and improving my diet I rarely ever experience heartburn, formerly a problem I dealt with on a daily basis.
Avatar f tn After taking Chantix for 2 months I quit smoking, but found myself so tired and gaining weight. I know after quitting smoking weight gain is normal but... after further investigation i'd become hypothyroid . I'm now on thyroid medicine but still no weight loss and ive been exercising my brain off... no weight loss. Now.... I would never recommend Chantix to anyone.
1382355 tn?1372534275 ) Doc didnt seem to worried about me smoking although he did express his concerns. Told me to try and cut down rather than just quitting. Nicotine replacement doesn't seem to be working for me. My little girl is kicking more and more everyday and the kicks are becoming abit harder. She had a lazy day on saturday and only kicked around 3-4 times, but sure made up for it yesterday. Today she seems to be a little boxer and boxing the hell out of me lol..
Avatar f tn Before you jump to the “bun in the oven” theory, know that I have heard it many times – I am on birth control and am experiencing normal periods. I am also a smoker and have started gagging while smoking. As you can imagine, this has greatly lessened my desire to smoke, so I am working on quitting. About a month ago, I went through a three week period during which I started to have major constipation.
503727 tn?1210442710 As soon as I get into a place I get so dizzy and my vision is all messed up. I get so hot and sweaty and my heart races. I want my life back. I still dont believe that its just anxiety causing all of this. I feel like I have something else wrong that the doctors cant find even though i have had bloodwork, mri, ekg, and they were all normal. I started taking .25mg of xanax once a day. still dont feel any better yet. So if anybody has any help please give it to me.
1323357 tn?1274826939 It took time and effort, but you replaced the smoking habit of thought with a non-smoking habit of thought, with positive thoughts. And then, for argument's sake, let's just say that if, a decade after that, that you're at a party, and an old friend offers you a cigarette. You think, why not?? and you smoke it. Now - does that mean that you're back to square one, hooked all over again? Of course not. The positive habits you've built up in the meantime are what count.
Avatar f tn I quit smoking 3 and 1/2 months ago and now that I have stopped the pain pills would I only now be going through the w/d's of not smoking, my chest feels very heavy and I keep coughing like I have a dry throat, I blame it on heartburn but now am wondering if it was easier to quit because I was in pain pills, Day 9 for me!
Avatar m tn Even with prevacid, i still get heartburn some. I am a smoker and smoke about a pack a day. Can someone ease my mind a little about the stool thing? Or tell me some info?
Avatar n tn I have a bit of heartburn, stuff coming up hitting the back of my throat, and I recently quit smoking. I think the dry throat is actually from the heartburn, so don't flip out. I thought since quitting smoking, the heartburn would get better, but 4.5 weeks later, nope, seems as bad.
Avatar n tn and I was put on quadriple therapy and I quit smoking at that time and was told to ease my diet or my feeding habits.
Avatar m tn I can tell you without a doubt my heartburn and stomach issues have almost disappeared since quitting smoking though. I don't drink at all, but I know alcohol will aggravate GERD especially binge drinking like you do. Just the two beers last night (I don't know what a cesar is) could be causing some anxiety which may nor may not account for the lump type feeling in your throat. If you visit the Anxiety forum you'll see this "lump" feeling talked about all the time.
Avatar f tn (Ideally, smoking is a habit you should break before getting pregnant. If you're still smoking and are having trouble quitting, ask your caregiver for a referral to a smoking-cessation program.)An over-the-counter antacid that contains magnesium or calcium may ease discomfort, but check with your prenatal caregiver before taking one, because some brands contain aluminum oraspirin or are high in sodium.If these measures don't help, talk to your caregiver about prescriptions.
Avatar n tn When this pain occurs, ive realised that i usually have heartburn, and smoking definately irritates it. Not sure which it is related to, but both seem to have something to do with it. I went to doctor and he put me on Aciphex, gave me a EKG that came out normal, and scheduled me in week 1/2 to check for heart murmur and xray. Tonight I did the experiment to see if it was smoking related, and I got the pain once (not too bad), and still have the after feeling.
170935 tn?1225374676 I really want answers and have quit smoking and all caffeine and am being a good girl,but my main objective is to be a live girl.
Avatar n tn After proceedure I had some crazy things happening with my blood pressure (very low, then very high, going higher laying down) GP suspected reflux, even without heartburn or sore throat, started me on Aciphex 20mg 1x and tachycardia improved as did nighttime choking events. ENT confirmed I had damage in throat, prescribed sleeping wedge, and sent me for a sleep study. That showed RDI 19 (mild-moderate apnea), CPAP is prescribed, but haven't been fitted yet.

Avatar f tn This is before I had asthma. You say you are trying desperately to quit. I think quitting smoking would really improve your breathing. Your family doctor could suggest ways of quitting smoking. I have heard of something called a nicotine patch. I don't know whether this would be helpful to you. Have you discussed this problem of having trouble breathing with your family doctor ? As you have asthma, you must be taking asthma medication. What asthma medication(s) do you take ?
Avatar n tn Simple question here, has anyone ever had a negative blood test and negative urine test and went on with their daily routine and a month or so later found out you were in fact pregnant while having ultrasound done. If this has happened to anyone or perhaps someone you know, please respond, I'd appreciate the information. Thanks.

Avatar m tn You will pay someday for the smoking and drinking, and are paying now for the foods you eat. You can continue as you are, and enjoy a short life, or get serious, take your doctor's advice and live a long healthy life. It's about choices and priorities, you need to decide what these are. I've seen people die at a young age from drinking, and my husband is very ill from smoking which he stopped 25 years ago.
Avatar f tn Lifestyle changes, such as avoiding alcohol or muscle relaxants, losing weight, and quitting smoking ,ay also help. Take care and best regards..
Avatar n tn I think everything is over and I clean up. I walk out of the toilet and in about 2 minutes time the stomach cramp and the fainting sensation comes back (I've fainted only once to date from this and was out for about 15-20 minutes). 6. When I get back to the toilet I have a really violent Diarrhoea episode in pure liquid state.
Avatar f tn Make sure you surround yourself with positive minded people and tell them that you are quitting so this way they will watch and make sure that you do. You can do this! I promise you that it is do-able.......we were all where you are at now and it is scary but we are here to support you so you need to just throw them out and read and write and talk and keep yourself busy. I joined a gym and yesterday I jogged on the treadmill for 11 minutes straight!!
Avatar f tn Yes, it is possible that it's due to quitting smoking (congrats on that by the way - my mom was a heavy smoker for nearly 60+ years and just quit about 3 years ago), but I would also try and rule out other causes for it such as the diabetes or perhaps even a thyroid problem, or like Selma suggested, reflux.
