I'm usually over on the Crohn's board since I was just diagnosed about
two months ago. But I've had GERD for the last couple years. Tonight I had an episode where I got really dizzy, chills, closed up throat, stuffy nose, hard to breathe, burning stomach. I tried to take an extra antacid (I'm on Protonix twice a day) and that seemed to make it worse.
I begin to wonder if I'm having a panic attack and then just wish I could have a bowel movement, thinking that will help move things along. I did have a larger dinner meal than usual.
I've had this happen a couple other times. Does anyone have these episodes and what do you do?
