Does anyone have dizziness that they can associate with GERD?  My 77 year old mother has been complaining of acid stomach (she has just been prescribed acidhex for GERD) and severe dizziness.
She has Congestive Heart Failure (which they ran a bunch of tests and said CHF wasn't causing her dizziness-how?  I'm not sure), hypertension (blood pressure has been in the normal range).

What kind of meds is she on? My mother also had CHF, along with a myriad of things and I discovered several of her medications listed dizziness as a side effect...rxlist has pretty comprehensive information...sometimes much more than the paper you get with the prescriptions. Hope you can discover the cause...
47 year old female diagnosed in Feb '06. In remission right now but BAD reaction to Asacol so hope it lasts a long time. Allergies to ragweed, cats, dust, cigarette smoke and other random things. On Wellbutrin, Nexium. Take lots of vitamns...

I had severe dizziness initially from GERD.  My aunt (not blood relative so it's not genetic) also had it.  I was sent for a brain MRI and she had to go thru many tests for her heart.  All turned out to be GERD.

I was on Prilosec for 1 month and had a rebound effect before I was actually able to wean myself off so I just stopped taking it.  I'm now on an alkaline diet and control almost all the symptoms with DGL licorice, slippery elm and aloe vera gel.
