Chronic back pain,IBS-C,GERD,headache,  costochondritis,fatigue,poor sleep,&palpitations for 6 MOS. Abd. Ultrasound Neg. CT last year Neg.Possible dx?

Hmmmm....: Sounds like you have several diagnoses. These do not sound related. There may be some relation between the GERD and the IBS-C. fatigue / poor sleep and palpitations may be related through a common anxiety.

Are GERD and headaches related?

Are GERD and headaches related?

Not directly: While there is no direct link between headaches and GERD, reflux can be stressful, and stress can cause headaches. Bottom line: unlikely association, but possible. Hope this helps!

Do a person have headaches with gerd?

Do a person have headaches with gerd?

Not from GERD: Gerd should not cause headaches, however both reflux and headaches are among the most common ailments in man, so the fact that they can both occur in the same person is not surprising.

I have swollen painless uvula, weakness, occasional cold and headache, ibs, gerd. I kissed a girl who had vomited some time before. Do I have hiv/aids?

I have swollen painless uvula, weakness, occasional cold and headache, ibs, gerd. I kissed a girl who had vomited some time before. Do I have hiv/aids?

From that? No. : From kissing? No, you cannot get HIV from kissing. Very very very low risk. However, if you did more with her, like oral sex or intercourse, that risk goes up. Also if there is more personal history there you may be at risk. Most likely it sounds like you may have a notable viral illness causing upset stomach and throat issues. Truthfully the symptoms fit strep more than anything.

Started taking Prilosec for gerd. Soon after I started experiencing this weird chest pain, headaches, and a pounding chest ( no HR elevation). Ran out and symptoms lessened.Took It again and they came back. Is it in my head or a reaction to Prilosec?

Started taking Prilosec for gerd. Soon after I started experiencing this weird chest pain, headaches, and a pounding chest ( no HR elevation). Ran out and symptoms lessened.Took It again and they came back. Is it in my head or a reaction to Prilosec?

It might be,,,: It appears that Prilosec can have as an adverse effect, severe abdominal pain. This is due to increased intestinal gas. There can also be nausea and vomiting. Headaches are also a side effect. It might be a good idea to talk to your doctor about how much you should take since your symptoms lessened when you ran out and this would help to avoid serious side effects. Good luck.

Can Gerd cause dizzy spells and headache. currently on pariet suddenly not working? do drink wine

GERD dizzy: Not likely GERD. Do 2nd opinion with me and we can figure out what is going. on. Or better yet see your Dr.there. Did they ell you to put the head of your bed on 8 inch blocks to see if this helps. Often does.

Check LFT: You should check with your prescribing doctor regarding the status of your liver. I would periodically check liver function and ammonia anyway but i tend to err on the side of caution. The earliest sign of liver problems is loss of appetite followed by itchiness. I would not take more than 325 mg of APAP every 8 hours.

Go see your doctor: When someone reports throwing up something that looks like coffee grinds, we worry about digested blood in the stomach, eg bleeding ulcer. Therefore, if you're reporting coffee grind appearance to your stool, it's a good idea to go see your family doc who can arrange for a repeat endoscopy since lots of Aspirin can lead to bleeding ulcers. Please don't wait until you feel faint & weak!

Taking metoclopramide 5mg 3x a day-have GERD and ibs. I get nightly headaches and nausea. I have trouble falling/staying asleep. Could it be my meds?

Tough question.: General answer is maybe. I don't think to is likely though. There is probably another cause for your symptoms, but it might be worth stopping your meds to see. Talk to your doc.

How do you confirm upper crossed syndrome? My main symptoms are upper back pain, gerd/digestion issues, fatigue, unable to deep breathe, and headache.

See specialist: Upper crossed syndrome involves the muscles of your upper torso. Gerd and indigestion are unrelated symptoms and should be evaluated by a gastroenteroligist. Your primary care physician can arrange a referral for evaluation of your musculoskeletal problem.

Recently diagnosed with GERD and taking Prilosec as directed. Chronic headaches, nausea and stomach pains. Don't think it's gerd. What could it be?

Hard to say, but...: ...It will be interesting to stop the Prilosec for a few days and see which and/or how many of your symptoms resolve. You might also want to stop smoking too.

Chest pain upperback pain mild headache sweating and dizziness..I was diagnosed gerd..Can this be causing my pain? Im so stress and depress. Im 25 f

Maybe, anxiety too: Gerd can cause a symptom of pain (often burning or sharp) that can be substernal or felt in the upper abdomen/back. Nausea and sweating can be associated also. Stress and anxiety can trigger discomfort too particularly if shallow breathing and hyperventilation arise. Sounds you need to talk to your octor bout all your symptoms as well as to rule out heart issues. More than 1 problem is possible.

The past couple of weeks I've been on Prilosec but am still having stomach pains, headache, & feeling lightheaded. It's worse at night. GERD related?

The past couple of weeks I've been on Prilosec but am still having stomach pains, headache,  & feeling lightheaded. It's worse at night. GERD related?

Hard to say,: without a physical exam.GERD by itself wouldn't cause your headache and lightheadedness. Some people report headaches when taking prilosec, so that may be the cause. Your lightheadedness may be due to anemia or low blood pressure, or some other cause - which is why you should follow up with your Dr to determine why you are feeling lightheaded. Make sure you are drinking enough water to keep BP up

Left lower stomach pain and left lower backpain.Mild headache and constipated.. I was diagnosed wid gerd., what can cause this symptoms? Im 25 female

Cure Constipation: Constipation can cause many problems. Treat with plenty of water, and high-fiber diet. Metamucil (psyllium husks), seeds, and high-fiber vegetables like carrots and celery. Increase activity of your colon with mild stimulants like prunes (may require several handsfull). Stay regular (i.e., at least one easy bowel movement per day). Magnesium (1, 000-2, 000 mg per day may also help).
