I have what I think is GERD... Every so often, maybe once or twice a week I feel "funny" in my chest. It's not my blood pressure or pulse, because I measure it and it's normal.
SYMPTOMS: (during an episode-not every day):
• Chest Pain - in the heart area
• Pressure in my chest, general area
• slight/mild wheezing - almost shortness of breath
• no appetit
• Lack of sleep
• Empty Stomach
• Food (processed)
• Acid Reflux
• Night time
• Worse right before period
Immediately loosen clothing (bra, pants...), fresh air, drink plenty of water preferably with electrolytes, drink protein shake or eat carbs (if it's due to lack of eating), and lie down - go to bed!
I take 40mg Nexium per day and it seemed to help until symptoms started again. So I tried 40mg of prescription Prilosec (omeprazole) (20mg in the AM&PM) gave me a MASSIVE headache in the afternoons.
2 months ago I woke up at 3am and could hardly breath. I had 4 glasses of wine the night before, too much chocolate and also potato chips (bad, I know...). I woke up my heart was racing, and I was lying perfectly horizontal, and super thirsty. I also immediately had to go to the bathroom (#2 and #1) and did so for the next 3 hours ever 20 minutes. No diarrhea, just normal regular BMs. You could set your clock. After that, it was only #1 every 20 minutes for another 4 hours.
Does anyone else have any of these symptoms? If so, what have you been diagnosed with? Any ideas what I could have? :) Thank you :)
