Hello, I am new to this forum. I have also posted similar to this on the GERD forum. I have been experiencing stomach burning, burning hunger type pains even though I have already ate, heartburn, dizziness (slight), loose stool, and through all of this, stronger heart palpitations. I had my cardio check up and he ordered a stress test. He feels the palps are from stress and caffeine. I have a doctors appointment tomorrow because I just can't take anymore of this. I fear the worst. I google my symptoms and up pops things from GERD to stomach cancer which I am deathly afraid of. I also have been experiencua cough now and then and sharp pains shooting in my neck(throat) area, as well as arms, and feet sometimes, almost like sharp gas pains. I take antacids and they only work for a little while. Yesterday I felt no burning at all, and today it came back after I ate some strawberries. Through this I have also someways have lost my appetite, and have felt nauseous. Has any ever experienced anything like this? I thought I have a stomach bug, but it has been two weeks! Plus I have no fever or vomiting. I am really scared what this could be. Especially since I am having heart palpitations with it. I am on zoloft for anxiety and antenlol for heart palpitations. But I have been on them for a while. These palps started stronger and more forceful since the burning stomach started two weeks ago.
I have had many test done on my heart, stress test, nuclear, holder monitor, ECG, and everything is fine, just extra beats. So I am used to have I g palps almost every day mostly when I drink caffeine inder high anxiety. But these are different almost. It seems that the stomach burning brought them on it vide Verda? My cardiologist didn't seem to think it was my heart, but ofcorse anything is possible. I am just scared as I have never felt burning and palps last this long for two weeks give an "ok" day or two in between without fail. I am a 43 year old female by the way. smile. Pleas if anyone has any suggestions I wouldn't really appreciate it! So scared!

I went to dr today and they gave me Med for acid reflux. If the medicine doesn't work I will need testing done. I am feeling better today andri haven't started the medicine yet so I am hopeful.

Yep, I'd think reflux too. I'd also consider gallbladder before heart. Good luck.

Hi San Pedro, I suggest that you go to CDC.gov & read up on the symptoms of this. Antibiotics are the treatment, however your symptoms are not quite the same. It may be you are no longer in remission.

Take care.
