Hi all I'm a 22 year old male suffering with gerd,my symptoms are chest pains,I also have ibs symptoms every month and recently I noticed when I clear my nose there is blood present(I don't blow hard,just gentle cleaning)I also have muscle spasms everywhere and can not take ppis because I feel as though my food isn't digesting and that I'm dizzy all gerd symptoms are so much like heart attack symptoms,I do weight lifting and am generally fit,my question is can gerd cause these nose bleeds?and "ear pressure"my blood pressure is normal,just sometimes I get a high heart rate(high to me is 89 not while resting completly)I'm concerned about my heart,but the doctors here are convinced its not,no blood tests performed,just and endoscopy which showed nothing,is it possible for gerd to cause the nose bleeds?

Welcome to our Forum. Feel sad that you are having health concerns. We aren't docs but try to help. Was wondering who told you that you had reflux when the endoscopy showed nothing. Based on what tests?

I think I would see a cardiologist and also have blood tests. That can show if you have lost too much blood as this could cause dizziness. Also give you some peace of mind knowing if the heart is involved.

Labs could help with determining cause of muscle spasms.

Too strenuous weight lifting can possibly injure the LES and diaphragm -- giving Reflux symptoms.

How is your diet-- are you avoiding the usual stuff line carbonated beverages, chocolate , spicy, greasy, fried etc.

Do you stop eating at least 2-3 hours befor bed time.

Now is the time to see that doctor, have labs, eat properly-- get under control now. Take care of yourself and do some babying. Please let us know how you are and keep posting.

I assume having heart burn everyday would suggest acid reflux?I don't have any chest pains or discomfort when training,could be a good indicator of my hearts functions?but yes!!!!I'm trying so hard for a full scale blood test to make sure,every doctor iv seen says my heart is in tip top shape,there's no bleeding indications in my stools,and my dizziness only arises when on ppi's,I'll keep everyone posted ofcos as soon as these doctors take me serious,I did a half line stress test on the heart with my physician who says my heart is at its peak,thanks for your suggestion on the les damage,I forgot to mention I did a baruim meal,which showed a functioning les,it probably only dysfunctions when there's too much pressure in my stomach or something like that,I can run like 10 laps around a ground with minimal tiring and I am pretty fit,as soon as I get the results I'll post my findings!thanks for the reply :D really appreciate your concern!
