Signs Symptoms Gerd
Gerd or "silent reflux" from forward head posture? If i fix the fhp will the GERD symptoms go away? 7 months of this and no signs of getting better.
Unlikely: Posture is not likely to be the problem. It may be related to hyperacidity, hiatal hernia or other GI problem. You should definitely see a GI doctor and have this assessed since it may be as simple as having helicobacter pylori infection treated with antibiotics. Good luck and feel better soon. ...Read more

Chest : Chest pain is a symptom that causes great concern for patients, and rightfully so. Chest pain may be a symptom of a life-threatening condition such as a heart attack. Chest pain can also be caused by other problems such as muscle pain or heartburn. Chest pain from angina (heart pain) is often described by patients as pressure, squeezing, or tightness in the chest. It can radiate to the neck, arms, or back. It can be associated with other symptoms such as nausea, sweating, palpitations, shortness of breath, weakness, or fainting. Angina can be brought on by exercise, and sometimes relieved with resting. Risk factors for angina include patients with high blood pressure, smoking, a family history of heart disease, high cholesterol, or diabetes. However, some people also describe their angina as feeling like indigestion or heart burn. Classic heartburn can be associated with an acid taste in the mouth, or with regurgitation of acid-tasting fluid into the mouth (reflux), especially if bending over or lying down. Certain foods can contribute to indigestion (chocolate, fatty or fried foods, or coffee for example). Both angina and heartburn cause pain in the middle of the chest. It is important that if you have chest pain and don't know the cause that you contact a physician for consultation. If your symptoms feel like classic heartburn, you can try an antacid, but if you have more concerning symptoms of feeling lightheaded, sweating, nausea, palpitations, or fainting, or if your symptoms are severe or last greater than 20 minutes, you should be evaluated immediately by a physician. If you are concerned you are having angina, you should also take a 325 mg Aspirin (if you have not been told not to use Aspirin by your doctor), as this can improve outcome in patients with heart problems. Any new or persistent chest pain patient should be evaluated by a doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
6 month old presents w/ intermittent vomiting (not projectile) and diarrhea for 5 days. NO irritability, sleeplessness, fever, dehydration, decreased appetite or any other signs of illness. What could cause these symptoms? Has GERD, possibly teething
Heartburn plus more: Not everyone with gerd has heartburn. The primary symptoms of gerd are heartburn, regurgitation, and nausea. Heartburn usually is described as a burning pain in the middle of the chest. Other symptoms include hoarseness, laryngitis, chronic dry cough, bad breath, earaches, chest pain/discomfort. ...Read more
Yes: Some patients with gerd have increased symptoms with physical exertion due to increase in both gastric (stomach) and abdominal pressure. Be careful about eating prior to activity, and watch alcohol intake and large meals. Some patients pre-medicate with antacids prior to physical exertion. ...Read more
Yes: it is possible that the omeprazole that you're taking is not adequately controlling your reflux, and the symptoms may still be present. If you have been taking the omeprazole for at least two weeks and are not improved, I would contact the doctor who prescribed it and see what the next step is. You should continue antireflux measures also. Good luck. ...Read more
Somewhat: Small portion meals that help prevent over-eating (i.e. "stuffed"), limiting alcohol intake, limiting caffeine, etc... May all help. But, currently as noted, there are good medications to alleviate the "heart burn" pain/discomfort of the acid refluxing back into your esophagus. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Why GERD symptoms get worse before mesnsturation and how to decrease symptoms without medication?
Well, not sure: Why worse but premenstrually many things worsen, perhaps even eating habits. Ranitidine is a medicine that is safe and much better than long term effects of reflux. If you smoke it's much less harmful and smoking can make gerd worse. Try some baking soda, milk or even a little bit of half/half if you must stay away from medicine. Gdluc. ...Read more
If omepazole makes my GERD symthoms worse can I stop taking it ? Or should I continue till my 14 days are up?
Submitted a Q earlier about being 29 w/ AMI symptoms w/o history. Got a response about GERD. Would GERD cause feeling of doom or dizzyness/ fainting?
GERD symptoms: Gastrointestinal reflux disease does not give rise to a sense of impending doom, dizziness and/or a change in your level of awareness. These are all symptoms that are reminiscent of a seizure. You should meet with your doctor and discuss whether an EEG would help sort out the problem. Good luck and take care. ...Read more
Feeding problems: Many babies have reflux (ger). Only some of them have reflux disease (gerd). Symptoms of disease include spitting up so much that there is poor weight gain, heartburn which can show up as colic, wheezing or cough with feeding and an unusual arching of the neck to the side and back when babies are trying to avoid getting milk in their airway. A baby can have one or all of these symptoms. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
GERD bronchiectasis: Bronchiectasis does not usually cause gastroesophageal reflux. Acid reflux can cause throat irritation, postnasal drip and hoarseness, as well as recurrent cough, chest congestion and lung inflammation leading to asthma and/or bronchitis/ pneumonia. Ger can cause bronchiectasis by aspiration of food material secondary to reflux causing lung destruction and bronchiectasis. ...Read more
