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.
