I just got diagnosed with GERD yesterday, after visiting a local Urgent Care.
I've got a bubbly/jumpy/shaky feeling in my chest, mostly center, into my throat and the right side.
I've also got anxiety, and the exact same day this all started, I felt as though my medicine hadn't been working as well as it been, mind you I've only been on it for 2 weeks, and I kno wit takes 8 weeks to actually be in your system completely.
The feelings feel like heart palpitations to me, something I get pretty often ( PVCs ) but more lighter, its so hard to explain. my heart is what started my anxiety, so im absolutely terrified now.
I've had an Echocardiogram, and a 24 hour holter monitor done, April 21st. both came back ok, structurally normal heart,
i'm a 24 yr old female, 309lbs ( I know I know ) non-smoker, drinker, no drugs, pre-diabetic.
I know my post isn't as urgent as others, etc.
i'm just curious if anyone knows if GERD can cause anything to do with the heart? or if I just need to start my new med, and chill out and see what it does.
it's been 5 days since this all started.
Thank you for reading this far!
