Is whitish phlegm being regurgitated consistent with GERD? (No heartburn) Can Pantoprazole become completely ineffective? Can regurgitation cause dried plugged nose in morning?

Is whitish phlegm being regurgitated consistent with GERD?  (No heartburn) Can Pantoprazole become completely ineffective?  Can regurgitation cause dried plugged nose in morning?

? GERD???: Have several?'s. With Gerd, you're having stomach contents come back up your esophagus to your throat. It could look a little phlegm to you occasionally but most of the time I would think phlegm would come from chest. Pantoprozole is a Proton Pump Inhibitor. It tells the parietal cells in the stomach stop producing acid. Should not give you dry nose in AM. ...Read more

What causes mitral regurgitation?

What causes mitral regurgitation?

Many things: Regurgitation means the valve allows blood to leak backwards thru the valve. Causes can be several things. This includes degenerative changes in valve tissues, rupture of supporting chords, rheumatic fever, infections, heart attacks and many more. Your doctor with the help of a good history and physical exam and some tests like an echo can help figure out which the cause. ...Read more

Mild aorta regurgitation on echo. Norm leaflets no stenosis. LV norm size and function. No symptom. Can I go back to aero. Exercise? Cause of regurg?

Mild aorta regurgitation on echo. Norm leaflets no stenosis. LV norm size and function. No symptom. Can I go back to aero. Exercise? Cause of regurg?

Aortic valve: In these situations unless there is any other reason we do not limit aero type exercise, but I recommend against very heavy exercise such as weight lifting, most other sports are OK, reason is calcification in aortic valve in most cases at your age, but you should ask that to your doc ...Read more

Can excessive burping cause regurgitation?

Can excessive burping cause regurgitation?

Maybe same thing but: Involuntary belching after a meal is normal, caused by release of swallowed gas after distension of the stomach with food. Magenblase syndrome is postprandial epigastric fullness & bloating, relieved by belching. Aerophagia (accumulation of gas due to air swallowing) is common with anxiety, hypersalivation from gum chewing, smoking, drinking, oral irritation. In some, belching can become habitual. ...Read more

I've been taking liquid advil for a couple weeks and having increased reflux with regurgitation. Can advil cause reflux or aggravate it? Substitute?

Yes it does : NSAIDS such as Advil will, cause GAstric irritation leading to reflux. You should stop Advil and start turmeric tablets 450mg (with pepper for absorption) using 3 daily. Trying to add stomach protectors creates more problems ...Read more

Cardiologist: Echo will not show blockages in coronary arteries. Minor regurgitation in multiple valves needs to be followed regularly by serial echoes and cardiologist exam and recommendations ...Read more

My heart is regurgitating very tiny amounts of blood, if I become stressed would this make it where more blood travels backwards and cause pain?

My heart is regurgitating very tiny amounts of blood, if I become stressed would this make it where more blood travels backwards and cause pain?

Trace regurgitation.: Trace amounts of regurgitation (backwards flow) are considered normal/physiologic, and being stressed would not make this acutely worse. It worsens in the long term through progression of valve disease, if an actual valve disease exists. Again, trace amounts are considered normal. ...Read more

What causes a heart murmur? I had an echo done but showed nothing but mild regurgitation

What causes a heart murmur? I had an echo done but showed nothing but mild regurgitation

A sound : Murmurs are sounds that are caused by blood going through a structure (valve, hole, etc.). It doesn't have to be abnormal. In fact, there are more normal "innocent" murmurs than abnormal ones.

Mild regurgitation sometimes can't be heard, so your murmur may not even be related. It is either that flow through the valve or an innocent one. ...Read more

Can anterior mitral leaflet redundancy with trivial regurgitation cause ventricular tachycardia?

Can anterior mitral leaflet redundancy with trivial regurgitation cause ventricular tachycardia?

Usually low risk: Mitral valve redundancy, usually called prolapse, usually produces no symptoms or minor symptoms. If the valve leak is trivial, that's very good news and serious complications including ventricular tachycardia are not expected because the left ventricle is not under strain. ...Read more

Sometimes when I burp I regurgitate some I know this is a sign of acid reflux but canit cause some pain on the left side of my chest also?

Sometimes when I burp I regurgitate some I know this is a sign of acid reflux but canit cause some pain on the left side of my chest also?

Yes: One of the biggest differentials for chest pain is GERD/reflux. Although it is a big differential and it seems like it could match your presentation, we wouldn't want to miss anything with the heart. I would get examined either way and hopefully your doctor can rule out any cardiac cause. Good luck! ...Read more

What causes frequent regurgitation left flank pain and a gassy feeling?

The list goes on: This list can be fairly lengthy and therefore a detailed history, physical, and supporting labs/x-rays are needed to hone in. Let's list: hiatal hernia, gastric outlet obstruction, bowel obstruction, gall bladder disease, gastroparesis, stomach ulcers, tumors, and pancreatic pathology. ...Read more

Yes: Smoking and excessive alcohol consumption have adverse effects on anyone including individuals with mitral valve prolapse. You're not particularly at higher risk because of the mitral valve prolapse though. ...Read more

Why does a partial or full avsd cause a holosystolic murmur? Is it because associated valve regurgitation? Thanks.

Why does a partial or full avsd cause a holosystolic murmur? Is it because associated valve regurgitation? Thanks.

Typically: Iin an avsd, there will typically be a systolic ejection murmur from increased flow across the pulmonary valve related to pulmonary overcirculation. The vsd shunting will often be low velocity and not produce an audible murmur, so any holosystolic murmur would usually derive from av valve regurgitation, a common problem in this defect. ...Read more

Why do I regurgitate food after eating that's not acidic causes no burn and xrays are normal, it basically happens after pizza or ground beef?

I don't know: However, your body seems to be telling you not to eat these specific things. Aren't you lucky that you don't really need a diagnosis? Just avoid them! Good luck. ...Read more

After eating, I frequently burp and this causes me to regurgitate some of my food into my throats. What causes this? It feels really irritates.

After eating, I frequently burp and this causes me to regurgitate some of my food into my throats. What causes this? It feels really irritates.

Reflux: It sounds like you have reflux (where acid and sometimes food come back up). You need to see a gastroenterologist to have this worked up (a scope down your esophagus to see why this may be happening). In the mean time, you can change things regarding your diet to try to alleviate these issues (don't eat late at night, don't go straight to bed, avoid caffeine, avoid chocolate, etc). ...Read more

Could mitral valve regurgitation cause anemia?

Could mitral valve regurgitation cause anemia?

Unlikely: If one has mixed mitral valve disease with a heavily calcified mitral valve that is both stenotic and regurgitant, one could imagine marked turbulance of the blood flow across the mitral valve with destruction of rbc's however, this is very unlikely. ...Read more
