Be seen: P lease make and appointment and be seen. It could be tightening of the esophageal muscles (achalasia). I would also suggest seeing an acupuncturist as well as t can be very helpful in conjunction with whatever is found by your regular doctor. ...Read more

Can GERD cause lightheaded feeling and swollen glands? I am a 41 year old female, have a hiatal hernia. Feeling like food is stuck in chest as well.

Can GERD cause lightheaded feeling and swollen glands?  I am a 41 year old female, have a hiatal hernia.  Feeling like food is stuck in chest as well.

Unlikely: I would see a doctor about the swollen glands and lightheadedness. Unlikely related to hh. Hiatal hernia and acid reflux could cause the esophagus to spasm or even develop scar tissue and narrowing. This would cause the feeling of food sticking or catching. I would see your doctor about getting a test to check your esophagus. If not already taking acid medication twice a day, recommend doing so. ...Read more

I have had chest pains at night for the past 2 nights I have the feeling food is stuck in throat and twitching in my abdomen now i see blood in stools?

See your doctor: When you are on Coumadin and have blood in your stool, you need to report those symptoms immediately to your doctor. You need to see what your inr and hematocrit (blood level) are. Chest pain with a feeling like something is stuck in the throat is usually worked up by having a barium swallow, or, more likely in your case, an endoscopy where the GI doc looks in your esophagus and stomach. ...Read more

Having burning feeling in chest and can't keep down food and water for three days. Thoughts?

Having burning feeling in chest and can't keep down food and water for three days. Thoughts?

SERIOUS: Get seen! when you say: 'can't keep down water' , this will lead to dehydration, so this is a serious situation. You may have an esophageal (food pipe) obstruction due to stricture (scar) or tumor. The chest burning suggests esophagitits (esophageal inflammation) which can be caused by acid reflux or yeast infection (candida). You may need scope (egd) & acid blocker (ppi) hope you get well soon! ...Read more

Hi, I'm on a diet because I need to reduce cholesterol. after eating some fat food (Nutella) I started feeling pain in the lower chest and belly.

Did the symptoms: go away? If not, please see you doc. Diet accounts for 15-20 % of cholesterol lab values. We make most if it ourselves. There are very effective natural approaches using red yeast rice and/or good quality marine fish oil. You would need to see a natural doc or a nutritionist for details. Peace and good health. ...Read more

Migraines have h/a: while I cannot say in your particular case, throwing up hasn't helped any of my patients. You'll probalby get several other answers saying about the many dangers of throwing up. We've all had vomiting; none of us had these. Don't make a habit of it. On the Other hand, there's tons of good medicines for migraine treatment and prevention. ...Read more
