I had the odd episode before but when i started on a certain anti depressant it became so unbearable i had to change to another antidepressant (this all happened in december of last year) since changing my GERD has improved greatly but i too am still left with some of the symptoms although they are milder, not sure if its just residual from the first lot of meds or if its still happening because im still taking an antidepressant.
I have been taking Toprol since January 06. One doctor says it doesnt cause acid reflux the other says it does.
Sound to me like you had an allergic reaction to the antibiotic and really didn't need Toprol at all. Why would a doctor do that to someone? Who knows.
I hope everything turns out good for you! Having this GERD really stinks!
Hi Cathy, I'm 41...soon to be 42 in July.
I never really thought about it, but since I have been on the Topral I have made alot more mistakes at work. I also do really strange things...like drive 10 miles to go to the store and forget my purse at home. I cant seem to remember anything. Someone can tell me something and I won't remember what they said in only a few minutes. I find that I have to write everything down or I will definatly forget. It very frustrating.
In December, right before Christmas, my blood pressure sky rocketed and my heart rate was very high. I went to the cardiologist and he did an EKG, nuclear stress test, echo, and sleep study. I started taking blood pressure medicine which helped the blood pressure, the other heart tests came out fine. My sleep study said I have sleep apnea. Where does this come from all of the sudden? So now I use a CPAP, which is very hard to get used to but it seems to help the GERD. I still have chest pain, pain in my back sometimes lower back and sometimes upper back to the point I have trouble walking, and in my elbow and knee. Mostly my left elbow, sometimes my hand(s) feel numb or like they tingle. No matter how much sleep I get I still feel tired during the day.
What are the pressure points and how do they test for them?
Thanks for your reply!
