11306955 tn?1417057058 can anyone tell me if heartburn can cause palpitation, sweating, anxiety and dizzy spell? please =( i'm so afraid and tired of this condition.
Avatar m tn 1) Small hiatal hernia. 2) Prominent gastric folds at the cardia level. I know what to do with the first impression and I know what is that. BUT the second one I really have NO idea what it is and what to do with that problem. Believe it or not I show this results to a General Doctor before I have to show this to a Gastroenterologist and the General Doc told me that he does NOT know what is the second impression.
Avatar n tn I usually have really bad heartburn. When it starts getting really bad, I'll drink milk trying to make it go away, but it usually takes such a long time for it to go away or sometimes it will go away only to come back later. Could this be acid reflux disease?
Avatar f tn I too have had alot of heartburn with my meds ever since the switch from synthroid. I ended up going to a gastoenterologist who sent me for an endoscopy. Said I had a hiatal hernia and esophegitis. Now I'm taking 150 mgs of Ranitidine, twice daily. I have been on many types of meds for this and not one has really taken care of the problem. Just think there's something else going on. They then sent me for a colonoscopy, which was fine. Now the are odering a small bowel series.....yeh, what ever.
Avatar f tn One cause of heartburn is celiac disease. This and lethargy were the ONLY symptoms my coworker was having. She's about 50 I guess. Her doctor checked her labs and she was positive for celiac disease. She had low levels of vitamin D and some other vitamins and minerals. No heartburn medicines were helping. Upper and lower endoscopy were done, and upper endoscopy showed the damage from the celiac disease. She went gluten-free.
Avatar n tn Milk may help relieve the symptoms BUT you need to find out what is triggering the heartburn. I have a hiatal hernia and manage heartburn without any OTC or prescription medications. Water has worked for me (as well as the ac vinegar.) I don't think water makes acid rise closer to the esophagus. Laying down flat after eating a meal makes the acid rise. Try to avoid lying down until 3-4 hours after eating. Invest in a wedge pillow, if you can. They are great.
Avatar m tn hi doc, hi i'm been told i may have hernia in my stomach,i was getting rapid stomach pains,and i did an ECG and nothing realy showed up, then i did an H. Pylori testand the result was indeterminate, the doctor here in guyana said i may have ulcer or hernia, can u plz help me with some information, did i mention i also suffer with high cholesterol, i'm 31/m, would it be wise for me to do an endoscopy????
Avatar f tn I am wondering if anyone can tell me if you always get heartburn with a hiatus hernia? I always have this feeling of fullness even if I haven't eaten, it gets worse after I have eaten. My stomach always feels tight, like it is ready to explode. Does anyone else experience this and if so, could this be a Hernia or something else?
Avatar n tn I was diagnosed with a hietal hernia several years ago.I also had severe acid reflux.I was put on Prilosec and when that didn't work after awhile I changed to Nexium.That helped alot.I didn't know a lot about my condition but I've learned alot since. Try and eat several small meals a day instead of 3 big meals. Try and stay away from overly spicy foods,coffee and pop being big problems for me.Dairy isn't great either.Chocolate can also be bad.
578534 tn?1222389983 Can you have a hiatal hernia and not experience heartburn? I havent been to a GI yet but I have all the symptoms..fullness/slight pain in sternum after eating.
Avatar f tn Is there any natural remedies or homemade remidies for heartburn that anybody knows about? Iv had Rennie's gaviscon & these things called renitidol or something... Its agony..
Avatar m tn I HAD A GASTROSCOPY A WEEK AGO WAS DIAGANOSED AS HAVING A HIATAL HERNIA AND HAVE BEEN TAKING LANSOPRAZOLE 30MG ONE PER DAY,I FEEL I DON,T SUFFER HEARTBURN,I BURP BUT I WOULD NOT SAY ANY WORSE THAN ANYONE ELSE MY MAIN PROBLEM IS MY STOMACH PAINS AND CRAMPS COULD IT BE THE TABLETS CAUSING THIS AND SHOULD I BE TAKING DIFFERENT MEDICATION WHAT CAN I DO TO HELP EASE MY STOMACH PAINS AND CRAMP.
Avatar m tn But, u should have an idea as to the root cause of ur GERD....like if u have a hiatal hernia.... Also note that low acids in the stomach can feel just like too much.It can also be med induced...so look at ne meds u may have been on recently or during the time frame u have had these issues. Antibiotics also knock out the natural balance in ur system and if u have had a need for them u may want to ask about a probiotic to restore balance.
Avatar m tn has anyone had any better ways of dealing with a hiatal hernia other than surgery?
Avatar n tn It doesnt seem to get better if i drink water, but it does get better when i have a heartburn chew. After the heartburn chew wears of it comes back again weather i eat or not, so am contanstly taking heartburn chew/tablets. It is rarely starting to get to me now, the constanted burping and then the horrible heartburn in my chest. I have also started to get strange feeling in my chest and i dunno weather it is related to this. Any advise would be greatfully accepted.

1962649 tn?1332448451 belching, bloating, heartburn, sensitivity at the waist, intestinal gas, hiccups, difficulty in swallowing capsules, overall fatigue, full feeling at base of throat, pain or burning in upper chest, pressure in the chest, pain in the left side of chest. So I read on-line about hiatal hernia and I tried the self-massage technique described here and felt immediately better. http://www.****.com/hiatal-hernia-massage.
Avatar m tn The stomach can push up through this opening and cause a hiatal hernia. In most cases, a small hiatal hernia doesn't cause problems, and you may never know you have a hiatal hernia unless your doctor discovers it when checking for another condition. But a large hiatal hernia can allow food and acid to back up into your esophagus, leading to heartburn and chest pain.
Avatar f tn I have copied and pasted info on a hiatial hernia and the link if u need more info. A hiatial hernia can cause acid reflux/gerd to build up in the stomach and can cause many of the symptoms u described.Ur dr should be able to rx an OTC med for u to use to help relieve the symptoms. ****************************************************************************************************** http://en.wikipedia.
222011 tn?1265475648 I am having problems as well with horrible heartburn & indigestion. I take synthroid 112 mcgs every morning & around 5:00 pm I have just started taking Prilosec. It has taken away the heartburn, but sometimes I still get that indigestion feeling. My husband suggested the prilosec because he started it after an ER visit & being diagnosed with hiatal (not sure of spelling) hernia & heartburn/indigestion.
Avatar n tn Presentation I was diagnosed (endoscopy) with an Hiatus Hernia 10 years ago after suffering regular and severe heartburn.I am not sure if the Hernia is a "Rolling" or "Sliding" type, only that it was small at the time of diagnosis. Omaperazole drug treatment took away all of my heartburn symptoms, and effectively solved my problem.
Avatar n tn I had surgery the first of March, 2001 to repair a hiatal hernia..I spent three day in the hospital, three weeks out of work.. since that time I am experiencing frequent nausea.. I can not find what brings this on.. it just hits me.. sometimes putting me in my bed... I also have found I cannot vomit.. There are certain foods my body no longer tolerates ..Can anyone explain this? any idea if this gets any better?
Avatar n tn My boyfriend was told his hiatal hernia was caused from overeating or going to bed on a full stomach. I would like to know if this is true because none of the websites I have found say that that is one of the causes.
494961 tn?1250745677 Hi, I am 36 year old female and was just diagnosed with a hiatal hernia. My symptoms are trouble breathing, a feeling of chocking when I eat, fatige,stomach bloating, chest pain and sometimes pain in my upper right side below my ribcage. When I eat I can only eat small amounts because it feels like I am going to choke to death. I have never had hearthburn.I did have my gallbladder removed in 98. I am awaiting for my doctors appointment. Does anyone else have this with out the heartburn.
Avatar n tn IF ANY OF YOU WERE DIAGNOSED WITH A HIATAL HERNIA CAN YOU PLEASE DESCIBE YOUR SYMPTOMS??? AS MUCH AS YOU CAN REMEMBER PLEASE.
Avatar n tn I have been told I have a large hietal hernia. I am trying to lose weight, plus take nexium. I do not have heartburn per say. My problem is I have a constant cough which causes gagging, dry heaves anytime during the day & at night I spend the night coughing (have bed propped up, etc.) If I bend over it causes me to get nauseous and start heaving, etc. I also have a umbilical hernia which the Dr. says not to do anything about. It is very large and protrudes from the belly button.
