I am so relieved that I found this list. I have suffered from gerd since I was quite young (following in my late mother's footsteps) and recently in my 50's it's gotten a little bit worse. I've tried several of the prescription medications like prilosec and raninadine, but they really don't do much or cause lots of side effects that are worse than the gerd. I've been trying to find natural remedies and some are more successful than others. My newest one is siberian pine nut oil, which has worked better than many of the others (digestive enzymes, aloe, probiotics, honey, etc.)

Anyhow, this morning I woke up and was very dizzy. I had some gerd and a little pressure in my chest. I was so frightened---I thought I was having a heart attack. Eventually, I felt better but the dizziness was quite scary and something I've only experienced once before (after a heavy restaurant meal.) It was especially bad to start out the day feeling like this. However, I went on to exercise and do household chores and conduct my usual schedule, so I guess I'm going to live. I was especially upset because my husband and I are leaving on a much needed vacation next Monday (there's a lot of family stress going on right now.) The thought of being in the ER with a heart attack three days before this much anticipated trip was extremely anxiety-producing.

This evening I found this wonderful forum and immediately felt less afraid, so I want to thank you for putting my mind at ease and for being there for me in my time of need. Maybe I don't have to be afraid to go to sleep tonight thinking I will die of a heart attack overnight!! Thank you. turn

I was wondering if anyone else who suffers from GERD experience sinus problems along w/dizziness and fatigue. I also experience chest pains along w/soreness and tightness in the throat. My blood pressure recently started being elevated and I am also wondering if it is associated in anyway. It is just a real pain in the Butt and I am really tired of it.
