for the last 4 years I have been battling constant burping and indigestion "attacks" that end up sending me in atrial fibrillation, a form of arrhythmia.
Heart is structurally sound and they have already tried ablating it to stop the afib with no success.
Gastroscopy does not show anything special only slight irritation, no esophagitis. Upper Gi X-rays show a lot of reflux. Tiny hiatal hernia.
Abdomen ultrasound did show a fatty liver and my TCM acupuncturist insists all my burping and reflux and heart issues are being caused by a congested and fatty liver. comventional doctors are disregarding that claim of course as my blood test liver function is fine. When the Chinese doctor presses on a liver meridian I am in excruciating pain.
I am much better on a clean alkaline food diet. Fatty meats, fried food, chocolate and coffee make me much worse.
I have tried many many medications, too many to list. The heart meds keep my heart stable but I feel horrible on them, I'm only 42.
Acid reflux medication doesn't seem to help although ranitidine works better than any ppi oddly enough.
Is this a chain reaction? Fatty liver causing reflux which causes indigestion and finally afib? Thanks in advance!!!
