I am worried about having this procedure done because lately I've been experiencing extreme muscle weakness in my upper arms and throughout my chest. It gets so bad that It feels like paralysis and I cannot move my arm and when I can it is extremely weak and feels like acid is burning it on the inside. I went into the hospital a couple days ago because of extreme upper stomach pains and really bad tachacardia. My heart was topping out at 160-170 bpm. While I was there they just waited it out and had me lay flat on my back. It was "sinus tachacardia" so they weren't worried about it. The thing is I know that some diseases like Chrones can cause tachacardia but I've never heard of a stomach/colon issue causing muscle weakness/paralysis symptoms. I did tell my new gi dr this and he did tell me there could be some complications with the egd but thought it was more important to take a look inside to make sure there was nothing serious happening.
Also does anyone else have increased heart rate after eating just a small amount of food?It seems that lately after I eat even a small bowl of soup and nothing else my heart starts skipping and racing. I have been to a cardiologist and had an echo done but wont know the results for another 2 weeks or so. I've also been experiencing shortness of breath with any kind of exertion. I went up a flight of stairs today and my throat and upper stomach were burning and my heart was racing and I got really short of breath. Its almost like the burning is soo bad that it takes my breath away...??? That's what it feels like anyway... Any advice???
