Hi I am newly diagnosed with GERD, I can't stand the palpitations in the morning when I wake up, the doc recently changed me from Nexium to Zoton .. I found Nexium to be the better med, so I am going to ask him to put me back on that.
Does anyone else have the fluttery heart sensations with GERD ? I am really struggling to find foods that suit me too, its all very plain and boring if I even try anything different other than bland, the acid is awful.. any advice would be great!
Thanks in advance

Hi.  I'm Beth from the fms and arthritis boards, I have IBS and GERD as well as an ulcer.  I wanted to share with you that it takes time for your GERD to heal and get under control, so in a few months, after medicating for some time, you may be able to handle some spicier foods.  Just don't over do it, everything in moderation!  Hope this helps.

I just had to reply to your post one more time.  I live in the US and have a neighbor by the name of Helen, who is also a very good friend of mine.  And get this, her last name starts with the letter V.  I thought you were her at first! But then I saw where ryou are from the UK!  Wow, freaky!

 

Feel better real soon,

beth

Hi. My name is Sari. I am new to this board. I am also suffering form gerd symptoms. I get the heartburn ,and burning in the throat/chest after I eat. I eat a very bland diet, and I still get the symptoms. I have had all the tests,EGD, 24hour ph, and esophageal motility. These all came back pretty much ok. They only saw some imflammation in the esophagus. I even take aciphex everyday, but still have symptoms. This all started about a year ago after I had taken some antibiotics. I just dont understand why I have such bad symptoms. I have tried everything. I even went on a trial of antidepressants thinking it was stress, but this did not help my symptoms.Has anyone esle had these similar symptoms?Any advice/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Back before my fundiplication, all foods made me miserable, regardless of how bland.  Hopefully you can scale back little by little until you find the least boring foods that you can handle!  After a while even water hurt me!  I wish you better luck than I had/am having now.

Maybe this might help. I have GERD as some of you do. Also I am a heart patient as of 9/04. I had stents put in and my diet had to change. Now, thats what I wanted to share because my GERD is almost gone. I still eat hot foods at times, tomato sauce etc. But what I don't eat is any deep fried foods (or very little) and I watch my intake of "bad fats". I also switched to olive oil for most things including salad dressing (nothing but olive oil and vinegar). Now, I do buy the very good Italian olive oil, there is a difference in quality and taste, no matter what you might have heard. With a name like Vinny (No it's not German,lol) I would know. I'm not sure which of these changes helped or all of them, but I only take my medication on occasion now. Hope this might help. tongue

Yes, Gina, some recipes for us folks with GERD would be real nice. I saw the post by Vinny that she does not eat deep fried foods and neither do I. I also use only Olive oil for everything and for the past 3 weeks have only been drinking spring water as the chlorine in tap water may not help the throat. So far not much has helped a lot. Hope you find some tips here to help you. There are some great folk here who are willing to share their ideas to help each other. Carol yeah

Ah yes, the recipe.  A simple one
Mash a banana
Add this to a beaten egg
Fry in a little olive oil over medium heat
as the top may scorch before the top cooks
if the heats too high
These are delicious

I am also on the spring water but it has helped me.  I never ever drink tea anymore as tea brought on awful symtons.  I only ever drink milk, water heated with a spoonful of honey, not sure if it helps but it sure dont get any worse.

I am searching for some recipes .......  will keep you posted

yeah

Yes, I do have fluttery palpitations and such.  Could this be the esophageal spasms that some people talk about...OR...could it be the vagus nerve?  It is kind of scary.

Yes, I did have the fluttery heart problem until I had my Hiatius Hernia fixed.  You may need to see a specialist for a EGD Test.
I had 4 inches of the stomach in my chest that caused the fluttering when I scrunched up my chest getting up or bending over or a side effect of the meds. In my case, I haven't had the hernia fixed!  Good luck!
