Hello Everyone I am a newbie with Gerd. Gastroparesis, Acid Reflux. IBS etc.....i was diagnosed with GP prior to be ing put on meds... but no answer to why i have it? 5'10 145 pounds very active....my problems began after i had a hysteroctomy/laproscopy and got an infection in my stomach then immediately after a complete hysterectomy at the age of 32. after wards began having the heart racing, sweating, lump in throat, throat burn, stomach burn, constipation, shortness of breath, insomnia you all know the drill........i have been on prevacid for over a year stll having problems, 3 months ago i was put on zegerid which was a miracle worker until about 2 weeks ago, i had a bad attack last night with my heart racing, lightheaded sweating etc.. real week.......my blood pressure has been high for over a month and i have always had low blood pressure usually 95/60 something like that it has been averaging 140/95 and in spurts higher.......since there is salt in zegerid i am thinking this si making my blood pressure go up. i was prescribed retlan for GP but very afraid to take it........also i have a quart of acid that just SITS in my stomach..............after reading on this forum, i think i have figured why i get burning in my lungs, acid aspiration???
