Can carvedilol cause exercise induced asthma?

Can carvedilol cause exercise induced asthma?

Theoretically yes bu: Non-selective beta blockers tend to worsen asthma and ideally should be avoided.

A more cardioselective beta blocker can usually be tolerated by those with asthma reducing the 1 sec airflow rate by about 8% but paradoxically making the airway more responsible to bronchodilator. ...Read more

Can smoking exacerbate gerd?

Can smoking exacerbate gerd?

Yes it can: Smoking can surely increase risk of gerd. It impairs lower esophageal sphincter function, increases acid secretion, and damages protective mucus membranes. It reduces salivation, which helps neutralize acid secretion when present in normal quantities. Both nicotine and smoking may be responsible, since some patch wearers also get gerd. Emphysema & alcohol worsen gerd too. ...Read more

Best exercise for pulmonary fibrosis weight lifting or cardio?

Best exercise for pulmonary fibrosis weight lifting or cardio?

Cardio: You have to be careful when exercising as you want your oxygenation to remain above 88%. I tend to tell my patients that cardio is a better exercise for them as weight lifting can be associated with big swings in your blood pressure and valsalva that could precipitate an episode of syncope"passing out". As usual, everything with moderation is better and talk to your doctor before doing exercise. ...Read more

Can exercise or stress induce acid build up leading to heartburn?

Can exercise or stress induce acid build up leading to heartburn?

Stress/habits=yes: Stress is known to increase acidity in the stomach but heartburn is mechanical. If the site where your swallow tube enters the stomach does not fully close, stomach acid will push up & cause heartburn when the stomach churns/squeezes food. Laying down after a feed adds pressure to the backwash. Consuming caffeine or nicotine keeps the site open. ...Read more

Can Sharp Pain triggered by very deep breath be cause by GERD? I read it could be. Happens during cardio-exercise. Localized,Sharp.1second

A bit atypical: For GERD to cause pain on inspiration. It would be more common that you have irritation/injury of one of the intercostal muscles(muscle between the ribs that help you take deep breaths) or one of the joints of the chest wall(as in costochondritis).

DX w/IBS, GERD, gastritis.The only time my stomach feels normal is if it's empty. Food/drinks & exercise cause reflux or ULQ pain. Is this IBS typical?

Possible.: It's hard to say what's typical for IBS since it becomes a diagnosis when we've excluded all other things. This may be what is typical for IBS for you, but not for another individual. It certainly falls within the spectrum of symptoms for IBS. If the symptoms are getting worse however, it's time to go back to your gastroenterologist. ...Read more

I am experiencing  irregular heartbeat, dizziness (better by: rest) (worsened by: changing head position, after exercise, sitting upright) , vomiting and heartburn (gerd). The following also describe me: Nausea, Lightheadedness, Fatigue, Rapid heart rate,

Rapid HR: If you’re having those symptoms along with a persistent rapid and irregular heart beat, then you could be having a significant problem with your heart rhythm. You need to see a Cardiologist, and if you can’t get in to see one today or tomorrow then you should go to the ED. Regardless, the heart rhythm issue needs to be elucidated. ...Read more

Felt nauseous and short of breath during exercise. Diagnosed with GERD after normal chest x ray, ECG echo stress test. Panic attack GERD or heart?

Most commonly GERD: with normal CXR,ECG and echo, findings are less likely cardiac. Exercise has been known to trigger reflux. Figure out if its your routine (crunches on a full stomach), or diet (aggravating foods, coffee, OJ). Try some PeptoBismol before exercise to see if chnages. Keep a diary of when it happens, how you feel, and what you had to eat that morning. It will give you and your doc the best picture. ...Read more

Food Born Illness: Usually foodborne illnesses hit fairly rapidly. Vomiting is not going to really help you very much. Ride this one out. Probiotics may be helpful as well so pick up some of those at any drugstore and take them twice-daily for a couple of weeks. Things should get back to normal fairly soon. If not see your doctor. ...Read more
