Gerd Vagus Nerve Symptoms
Can acid reflux or other GI issues cause heart palpitations (PVCs) (e.g., via vagus nerve irritation)?
The brain and spinal cord communicates with what is occurring in the internal organs and limbs by nerve fibers where are like electrical wires with insulation (myelin) and the "copper" (axon). Within brain and spinal cord these nerves connect to other nerves via synapses on both axons and dendrites. A nerve can carry information regarding sensations, and ...Read more
EMG/NCV diagnosed Sensory & Motor Demylinating Neuropathy, can that cause: Bladder Dysfunction/Retention, Autonomic & Vasovagal Dysfunction?
Unusual: Gastroparesis is more typically seen when there is a autonomic neuropathy condition as can be seen in diabetes. Connective tissue disorders on occasion can also cause gastroparesis but those disorders are usually really to scleroderma conditions. In lupus you may see a complication called vasculitis in which there is inflammation of the blood vessels supplying a nerve. It would be unusual to see this affecting this nerve ...Read more

The phrenic nerve does not typically travel through the outlet and is usually on the anterior scalene muscle that forms the anterior border of the outlet. Occasionally an accessory phrenic nerve may be dominant and travel through the outlet but I have not seen any cases with breathing problems. ...Read more
Chronic whiplash injury and luq has malfunctioned. Brachial plexus triggers nerve symptoms but nerves not injured. Starting rehab. Healing possible?
Get diagnosis first: Be efficient, and get answers as to why your injury did not fully heal. Not uncommon is an injury to the brachial plexus from shoulder strap, with eventual scarring, called thoracic outlet syndrome. Therapy does help, but is a specific approach, such as felderkreis work. Both EMG and ultrasound studies could pin down precise mechanism. If you have tos, about 85% success with conservative rx. ...Read more
UNUSUAL: Lesions in the lower brainstem, medulla oblongata are rather rare, but if they do occur, one might encounter problems with speech, such as a dysphonia, or a strained speech pattern. If there is widespread inflammation, also involving glossopharyngeal nerve, might see dysphagia, or swallowing problems. Likely the internal organs such as heart, lungs, GI tract would not be involved. ...Read more
Probably not: Globus sensation can be caused by several different possibilities. Gastroesophageal reflux is a common cause , however, h pylori gastritis is not. I would treat the gerd aggressively and see if the globus sensation improves. I recommend that patients undergo an egd (stomach scope) to rule out any underlying conditions such as a peptic ulcer, esophagitis or hiatal hernia. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
