hello friends ,

how are you doing?

it all started with me breathing heavily and heavy dizziness.

first I thought was heart attack, the doctors said it was anxiety, but still dizziness continued next day but with sour reflux.

what ever I eat came up, so doctors prescribed me PPI, I also did my heart related test like , ECG, 2D echo, stress test and they said my heart was fine.

so I continued with PPI and as I felt better , I stopped them...It came back with all force and again I was throwing acid all over...

I had done many changes in my lifestyle...Including running, yoga, sleeping early..

so one day when I was running , I felt heavy dizziness[I did run more...5.5 km over usual 2 to 3 km] ..heart was beating heavily..So I got scared..so next day I went to heart doctor to ask him about it...then they did ECG to find out my heart was beating little slow [47 beats as compared to 60]..also they did my stress test again but finally said it was nothing to worry about.I keep tracking my heart using mobile app which shows its normal above 70..I',m not sure if I have recovered from slow heart..or mobile apps are wrong..

from that day I have become crazy..may be more anxious .. because of GERD I'm burping all the day with sometimes pains in my chest and back ..though the pains are not sharp.I'm really worried about my heart.

I also suffer with some ear pain..and dizzy spells and cough/vomiting sensation in morning

I dont know what to do about it..I always keep thinking its going to be my last day on earth..and what will my wife and parents do without me..

is it really my heart or GERD ??

I'm just 30 years old and this thing is taking over my life...I'm into internet business and recently released my new site..but now I'm not even interested in that.

I did undergo endoscopy and doctor said it was not cancer but I have intestinal metaplasia stomach..thats they second thing which drives me nuts...

my wife wants baby but my mind is really not happy with all this situation and can not think about having baby..which makes her feel sad..also my health concern's her.

it makes me SAD.thinking over all these things whole day.

any ideas or suggestion...

thanks for your valuable time...

PPI has withdrawals as your stomach is used to trying to pump more acid that the ppi is trying to shut off.

Apparently, quitting this crap creates a worse condition than what you started with.

This is 21st century medicine.

Treat your acid reflux again I guess and ask the doctor to develop a plan to somehow wean you off this chemo-reactive drug.

Good luck. You are young and deserve answers and health. Get a wedge pillow btw, just to be safe at night.
