Can acid reflux (gerd) cause dizziness and anxiety? Was prescribed Nexium (esomeprazole) twice daily, doc said the acid burned my throat, it was pretty bad.

Maybe: Acid reflux may be causing your anxiety, but in my opinion, it may be the other way around. Your anxiety may have been part of the cause of your acid reflux and dizziness. Alcohol may also be a culprit. The medications you are taking also need to be considered. Consult with your treating physicians to take a thorough look at your entire medical history, and make changes accordingly. ...Read more

Technically called GERD, acid reflux is the presence of acidic stomach contents in the esophagus. The acid irritates the esophagus causing heartburn symptoms. The regurgitation or reflux can vary greatly as can the symptoms. Blocking stomach acid with medications can alleviate the burning but medication cannot stop the reflux. Complicated GERD requires surgical treatment ...Read more

Can acid reflux cause tingling /heat feeling in the head? And dizziness? + a little weight loss? If no what could it be?

Re-evaluate: Tingling, heat, and dizziness are all possible symptoms of low blood sugar and low blood pressure. Aldactone (spironolactone) that you are using as an anti-andorgen could be contributing to these symptoms. Eating 6 equal small meals, staying hydrated, movement through the day, and a good night sleep might help. ...Read more

I was already told I have mild gastritis and acid reflux through a scope. But I feel dizzy, sluggish and mild nauseous after eating. Is this low acid?

I was already told I have mild gastritis and acid reflux through a scope. But I feel dizzy, sluggish and mild nauseous after eating. Is this low acid?

Gastritis: I'm not sure what your symptoms were that led to an endoscopy on an 18 yr old, but dizzy and sluggish are not suggestive of "mild gastritis and acid reflux". Not knowing anything about you such as your BMI or medical history and medications, its not possible to provide a relevant differential diagnosis for your symptoms. Please consult your doctor. ...Read more

I've had chronic cough for 4 months and just been diagnosed with acid reflux, I taste blood and get dizzy and sometimes throw up. The cough has been bad for 2 weeks now. I am just wondering why.

Mgt: Your reflux is not under good control, adding additional medications may be needed. I would also suggest that you have a chest radiograph, TB test and pulmonary function testing. If you have any nasal congestion, a saline rinse and nasal steroids may be added. ...Read more

I've had pain in my upper left ab region and acid reflux. I've become dizzy, weak and muscle twitches. I had blood tests done that were normal, is it?

I've had pain in my upper left ab region and acid reflux. I've become dizzy, weak and muscle twitches. I had blood tests done that were normal, is it?

Don't expect more: Muscle twitches are seldom worrisome; most people get them and they usually mean nothing. I think they're nerves doing self-maintenance. Manage your acid reflux (meds, maybe prop up the head of your bed), stay fit) and your physician will decide about imaging based on the character of your abdominal pain. ...Read more

Acid reflux, chronic sinusitis, sleep apnea and lack of sleep. Are they responsible for my dizziness and nausea?

Acid reflux, chronic sinusitis, sleep apnea and lack of sleep. Are they responsible for my dizziness and nausea?

They can be: Lack of oxygen can be a factor in all of your symptoms. Is the chronic sinusitis due to obstructions (polyps) or a deviated septum?
Has your sleep apnea been diagnosed by a witnessed overnight sleep centered study? If so have you been advised to wear a cpap?
If so, are you? If not, in mild to moderate cases, a dental device can be custom made to reduce the obstruction. ...Read more

Complicated: Nausea is a typical gerd symptom but not dizzy or shortness of breath. Those are unusual. I suggest you get a fresh evaluation by someone else - a second opinion, to make sure something else isn't going on. ...Read more

I sometimes get a bad stomach ache and my burps smell like eggs and I also get very dizzy and blackout for a second. Is this acid reflux?

I sometimes get a bad stomach ache and my burps smell like eggs and I also get very dizzy and blackout for a second. Is this acid reflux?

Yes: Some of it is - the burping and stomach pain; the egg smell is hydrogen sulfide which can be produced in the stomach. Blacking out and getting dizzy may be a vagal reaction from belching, but I would see a physician about it. Blacking out, even for a second, is a serious symptom and can result in injury if it occurred while driving or even crossing a street. See your doctor. ...Read more

Lots of thoughts.: Many concerns are expressed here. Unfortunately, there's not much in this forum that can be done with such limited information to help you get the answers you wish for. Maybe try asking questions one at a time would help. Try to be as clear as you can be when asking about a problem. Also, there is no better way to find out about your health than to visit a doctor in person. Consider pregnancy too. ...Read more

I am 4 weeks late on my period, I woke up dizzy & I wanted to throw up, I haven't throw up yet. I am not sure my acid reflux or I am pregnant.

Should get a test: If being this late is not normal for you and there's no other good reason for you to be dizzy and nauseous and if you've had sexual relations (protected or not, Plan B or not, "didn't ejaculate inside" or not) then, investing in an inexpensive home test kit will likely give you your answer. Alternatively, you could make an appointment with your ob/gyn and get more precise workup. All the best! ...Read more

You're sick: Presley, sounds like you are definitely under the weather. You should drink LOTS of fluids, some with salt (like soup or GatorAde) (at least 1 glass or cup every hour while awake) and get a pregnancy test. If this lasts more than a day or so, and especially if you actually do pass out or have fever or neck pain you really need to go to a clinic. Good luck! ...Read more
