Re: Gerd Symptoms
Feb 22, 2006
My symptoms:

* Pain at the lower part of my breastbone, sometimes radiating further up and sometimes radiating out into my breasts

* Gas and belching

* Sometimes a racing heart or heart palpitations

* Sometimes bowel movements and stools that differ from "normal"

* Loss of appetite and sometimes all-out aversion to food

* Anxiety and frustration over the symptoms and the apparently ability to make sense out the causes and triggers. What bothers me one time will be just fine another.

Anxiety over the GERD symptoms can certainly cause a racing heart. I've also heard from several places that the inflammation of GERD can irritate the Vagus nerve, which may also cause a racing heart or palpitations.

And odd thing for me. I usually get the racing heart and palps when I'm having a flare-up. But I'm on this supplement right now that, for some reason, almost completely prevents them. I know this because I lowered the dose of the supplement and started having cardiac symptoms, then I'd raise the dose agains and it would go away. I did this a couple more times, just to be sure I wasn't imagining things.
