Aortic valve leak: If severe aortic valve regurgitation is present, it will often cause widening of the pulse pressure; the difference between the systolic (top) and diastolic (bottom) blood pressure values will increase. This may or may not be perceived by the patient. As w/ most cardiac conditions, it is likely to be more symptomatic w/ strenuous activity. Diagnosis requires physical exam +/-echocardiography. ...Read more

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 and alleviate these issues (don't eat late at night, don't go straight to bed, avoid caffeine, avoid chocolate, etc). ...Read more

Get checked!: This is certainly not normal, Sometimes there is a pouch like growth attached to your esophagus that can hold food and then it is regurgitated. Zenker's diverticulum is one type. There are other causes, as well, Get seen and examined and have any necessary tests done to sort this out. See http://www.uwmedicine.org/health-library/Pages/esophageal-diverticula.aspx ...Read more

Iam having mild mvp with mild regurgitation. Does i need to avoid any foods .Can I do all types of exersises and can I play all types of sports.Thanks?

Should be benign: I'm afraid that my experience with most cases of diagnosed mvp involve an incorrect diagnosis. It is frequently the case. Also important is what symptoms lead someone to do an echo and 'diagnose' mvp. So a second opinion might be in order. That said, it is generally a benign condition. Thee should not be any dieatary or exercise restrictions according to any published guidlelines. ...Read more

After eating I constantly regurgitate food but I don't have the taste of stomach acid. Is this serious and can this cause esophagal cancer? Help!

After eating I constantly regurgitate food but I don't have the taste of stomach acid. Is this serious and can this cause esophagal cancer? Help!

Unlikely cancer: Esophageal cancer in a 25 year old patient is very unusual. Nonetheless, the symptoms you report are very concerning and mandate a face-to-face physician examination. You should also have an upper endoscopy meaning a video camera that is slid down the mouth into the esophagus while you are asleep. This will show if this is a tumor, or something else like achalasia, or diffuse esophageal spasm. ...Read more

Gall bladder removed in july, found I have to take digestive enzymes (heath store) or i regurgitate food. Take prevacid (lansoprazole) 15mg for poss. Reflux. Normal?

Different problems.: Gallbladder disease tends to be distinct from gastritis or gerd with regurgitation. A ppi drug like Prevacid (lansoprazole) should be used short-term only if possible. I would consider a gerd workup, to include upper endoscopy (egd), and then perhaps other studies to evaluate your symptoms of regurgitation, that may be resolved with medical or surgical therapy. ...Read more

Swallowing difficuly: You need to see a GI specialist for upper endoscopy for further evaluation to make sure that there is no esophagitis, ulcers, stricture, narrowing, etc. Regurgitation of food suggests a bad case of gerd or loose esophageal sphincter. You need further evaluation by a specialist. Throat symptoms are likely related to severe acid reflux. ...Read more
