Can heartburn cause nervousness?

Can heartburn cause nervousness?

Well. It may cause..: For example: heartburn can be perceived as a possible heart attack and thus can cause the person to be nervous/anxious/scared, but this just means it can trigger those symptoms, not causing the anxiety disorder itself. Having underlying anxiety disorder and having certain illnesses can make the anxiety worse over time. If severe/persistent, you can develop anxiety/depressive disorder.

I am experiencing heartburn (gerd) (worsened by: eating shortly before bed, eating certain foods, lying flat). Constipated. Burping. Feeling weak?

GERD.: The symptoms you have described could be consistent with gastroesophageal reflux disease. Given your age, it would be fine to trial a one month course of an over-the-counter medication like Protonix or Prevacid. Should this medication not work, or should your symptoms worsen during the month trial, then an evaluation with a gastroenterologist would be wise. ...Read more

I've been experiencing on and off bouts of constipation and diarrhea. Also intestinal cramps. Family history of celiac disease. E.R MD thinks Gerd?

Many possibilities.: GERD doesn't explain it. Constipation can though. Sometimes if you are constipated you get so backed up that eventually it comes out forcefully and fast (i.e. like diarrhea). If you stay regular it could go away (prune or pear juice, senna, docusate, miralax (polyethylene glycol) -- all over the counter). Take even if you start going to make sure it doesn't build up again. ...Read more

Gluconate or diet: Ferrous gluconate is more mild on the G.I. Tract, and produces less constipation if iron is needed. Dietary sources for iron includes green, leafy vegetables that and spinach, which are high in iron. However you cannot have dairy products at the same time, or the iron gets bound, and rendered inactive. So these are 2 great alternatives. ...Read more

I am taking lansoprazole for acid reflux and heart burn. Does the medicine cause constipation? This is what I am experiencing since I have started it.

GERD treatment: Probably not causing constipation. Your gasto-esophageal reflux is not being caused by too much acid! You most likely need more stomach acid. Remember you need stomach acid to breakdown your food before it reaches your small bowel.
Remember to chew your food at least 29-30 times before swallowing! Take your tine eating your food. Limit the amount of liquids you drink during your meal (max 8 oz) ...Read more

Why are pregnant women prone to heartburn, indigestion, constipation and haemorrhoids?

Why are pregnant women prone to heartburn, indigestion, constipation and haemorrhoids?

Fetus/uterus growth: Heartburn and indigestion are caused by the increasing abdominal pressure, due to the enlarging uterus. Hemorrhoids are caused by increased pelvic venous pressure - same cause. Not all pregnant women become constipated, but the fetal and uterine enlargement surely can lead to GI distress. I suggest a good diet and good hydration. Good luck. ...Read more
