New Here....
Has anyone ever experienced a problem with blood pressure when a severe acid attack come on?? I have had several heart tests the last few years as they try to figure out why this is so severe. I'll have large amounts of acid come up..(kinda like when you brush your teeth, and spit out the tooth paste!) sorry for the visual there!!! Anyway......on occasion, I'll get a severe chest pain, but my BP will also go up.

Hello Dan,
Welcome to the forum! Sorry you're experiencing severe attacks. I have never experienced anything like you described. Maybe, others who might have experinced your symtoms can offer some help. I was dx w/GERD approx 7 yrs ago, but have had symptoms for many, many yrs, including chest pain which led me to the ER.
I'm not sure if my BP was elevated on any of those occasions, and the only thing that I can think of that might attribute to it is the pain. Often times extreme pain in any part of the body could attribute to an elevated pressure. What is your dr suggesting on the issue?????

Hope you get some answers soon, take care, and once again welcome to the forum.

Best wishes!

Hi Dan, I am not happy to read that your blood pressure goes up with a GERD attack, but I am happy to kinow that I am not the only one who this happens to.  I have noticed that my b/p elevates to high levels at times when my GERD is bad.  It doesn't happen every time I have the GERD problem, but every few weeks at about 2 AM I awaken to elevated blood pressure, racing heart and burping.  I attribute it to GERD as my blood pressure is usually in the normal range for the most part.  It happened to me just this past weekend. My blood pressure went up to 180/101 and by morning it was down to normal numbers. I tried to think of what I ate that could have caused the problem and came up with something...but I can't remember at the moment what it was.  So therefore I try to eat well so that I don't have any of these problems because quite honestly they do get scary.  At 58 it is frightening to wake up to such high blood pressure.  There was a time that I thought about going to the ER but held back because I am terrified of drs and hospitals.  But now when I get these attacks I calmly say to myself...this has happened before, I lived through them and tomorrow is another day!  I guess that sounds stupid?
