Acid Reflux / GERD Message Board


Acid Reflux / GERD Board Index


I have all the symptoms you do too - I've had reflux since I was 26 and now I'm 40. I have been on ppis (Prilosec and Nexium) on and off for years. The Nexium is stronger and seems to help with the symptoms - which are much worse for me in the morning. (Nausea, lack of appetite, stomach discomfort).

I am going in for my second endoscopy in 5 years just to make sure nothing has changed. You should definitely make an appointment to see a gastro doc. Some of your symptoms sound like gastroparesis - which is essentially delayed stomach emptying. (Go to Wikepedia's site for good info on this topic)

I also suffer from frequent heart rhythm changes (my heart is normal), and I think its most likely related to the vagus nerve. I frequently get a stomach "jump" just before a bout of palpitations. When I see the gastro doc next week, I'm going to ask him about testing the vagus nerve to see if its functioning properly. (It controls everything from heart rhythm, to breathing to digestive processes and a lot more) If its overactive or underactive in any way, it can contribute significantly to some of the problems we seem to have.

Hope you feel better soon.
