Hi,
  I occasionally go through spells of having feelings of being extremely hot, sweating, nausea, and feeling like I might pass out shortly after eating.  Do any of the rest of you ever experience this?  It's almost like I put out too much adrenalin when I eat.

Hi again,
I feel sort of stupid, because this morning I was thinking about these symptoms. Then I thought about how, several years ago, when my GERD was at it's worst, I would have alot of nausea, diarrhea and feeling really badly, and it was all taken care of my Aciphex. Very recently, I've started getting heartburn again, and esophageal spasms, nausea, diarrhea and that sweaty feeling, like I'm going to pass out. So........I really do think this is a GERD problem. What was confusing me, was that I wasn't having a ton of heartburn, or these spasms.........but I'll bet it's enough to cause all those other symptoms. I guess I'll try Pepsid for awhile, and see if I feel better. My memory isn't so good these days, and I was forgetting how bad I felt when my GERD was it's worse. I would break out in a sweat after eating, and just feel awful. So I think I've answered my own question!
But I am curious if others of you get sweating and shakiness and nausea about a half hour after eating with your GERD. Thanks.

Hey Cathy,

You could also probably try Prilosec OTC. It should work quite a bit better than Pepcid.

Hi Cathy,
I experience the sick all over feelings on occasion. I indicated many times that these feelings remind me of morning sickness w/pregnancy, just sick all over. I can't recall it happening immediately after eating, but belching usually helps relieve the symptoms for me and Maalox. I have experienced this on awaking, probably from food consumed the day before, or even a couple of days prior to episode.

I usually watch everything I eat, and I definitely believe that some foods that were consumed in the past doesn't flare up for a couple of days causing reflux problems. It isn't always immediate for me.

I am currently using Prolisec 40mg once a day, and i'm seeing great results. I was using Previcid for at least a yr and had to switch up in July.

Thanks CkgMD and Vanessa,
I think I might go back to aciphex, since if I remember correctly, a long time ago the prilosec made my lips numb!!
I'm just upset that I have to resort back to PPIs. I just can't figure out what made my GERD go crazy, after it being asleep for several years. Actually.......I think it was the antibiotic I was on about 6 weeks ago. Those things always do a number on my GI tract........even though I ate yogurt and took acidophilus!

Cathy, sorry to hear about your relapse with the GERD! Antibiotics can sometimes irritate the esophagus, so that may have had an effect on you.

I'm on Aciphex and Zantac, however, each person's body tolerates things differently. That is why these are only suggestions that are made here, and your own physician should make the call on what you take medication-wise.

Wishing you all the best!
Hugs, Teri :)

THanks Teri,
Aciphex always worked the best for me, but it's not OTC yet, so I'm limping along with the OTC ones. Aciphex, several years ago, was like a miracle for me. It cleared up my GI problems from stem to stern! I was so amazed by it!
Jennifer.....isn't it okay to suggest OTC meds? I don't always consult a doctor before taking OTC medications.
