Hey everyone! I'm a bit down today. A couple of days ago I had a scary incident at home and posted on the GERDS board but got no reply. I'm not sure if it was GERDS related or heart related but it really scared me. So I guess I will call my cardiologist's office tomorrow and see what they say about it. I was really hoping it was all GERDS related but I really don't know!?
It was at night and I was just sitting around when I felt as if it were hard to get a breath. Then I felt just a touch of lightheadedness. Next my stomach really started to hurt. Then I got a warm feeling all in my stomach that moved up into my chest and I felt tingly or some kind of awful sensation all over from my stomach into up chest up into my head. I grabbed by BP monitor and can't remember what it said but I remember that it registered my heart rate at 120. I thought that was strange because I really did not feel as though it was racing. Well I was just ready to call 911 because I felt so bad when it all subsided just that like-snap, over. Then I felt as if their was food stuck in my throat and I burped most of the rest of the evening. That is why I think it could be GERDS.?.?
A week ago Friday, I had another episode of feeling like I could not breath and a bit of lightheadedness but none of the rest of the stuff. Then I felt as if food were stuck in my throat and I started burping all evening. I had eaten pizza that night and had eaten kind of fast because I was starving.
After the burping starts, I don't feel short of breath anymore. That is why I'm wondering about GERDS. Any thoughts?????????
