Hi,
My GERD has been well controlled for awhile, but I think its back. I'm getting nausea and dizziness after eating. Do any of you get dizziness with your GERD? Thanks.

Cathy,

I had severe dizziness and nausea all the time.  Those along with the "knot in the throat" feeling were the only symptoms I had.  I got GERD from taking Advil at night and sleeping on my right side for more than a month due to an injury to my left side.

Try the DGL licorice (you can buy it in any health food store), take at least 3 (less than that did not work for me), dissolve in mouth slowly with saliva 20 minutes before you eat anything and at night.  Don't drink anything while eating and don't drink anything at night after dissolving the DGL in your mouth.

Sleep only on your LEFT side (acid from your stomach cannot come up into your esophagus) and elevate your torso and head.

Try this for a few weeks, you will get positive results.

If you want more information on the DGL, there is tons of it on this site.  Just research back.  RandyDandy also has written extensively about his recovery.  You will be happy you'll see.  Good luck.

Thanks Danie,

    Unfortunately, I can't eat DGL.  I find the taste sooooooo bad, I just can't even put it in my mouth!

   Something you said that's interesting, is about not sleeping on your right side.  That's the only side I can sleep on! (because of hip problems).  Actually, I started thinking that maybe sleeping on my right side was causing some sinus/right ear problems that might be causing the dizziness.  So last night I tried sleeping on my left side, and my hip hurt too much.    I will try to figure out how to get off my right side somehow.  Thanks for your input!

At least sleep on your back but elevate your TORSO not only your head and neck.
