A member asked:

So ive had stomach issues for the past month and a half. and recently sometimes after i eat i will feel like my heart is fluttering and i get light headed and my chest hurts. i was just wondering if this is normal and a part of heartburn?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

GI and glucose tests: Quite possibly due to reflux and or esophageal spasm,but need to look at other possibilities as well.Light headedness could be related to blood sugar, chest pain could also indicate hiatal hernia. Need evaluation by GI doctor and baseline tests for glucose levels. Till seen try not to eat or drink alcohol for several hours before going to bed as that may aggravate some of these issues
