Vagus Nerve Gerd
Nerves in the neck: The vagal nerves, 1 on either side of the neck, control the vocal cords; the left vagal nerve also gives parasympathetic innervation to the heart. In theory, gerd shouldn't stimulate the vagal nerves, because the esophagus is further back in the throat, while the vagal nerves are close to the front of the throat. ...Read more
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
Endothelial Problem: Heavy meals can cause the cells covering the interior wall of arteries to become sluggishly and sticky, a condition called endothelial dysfunction. This leads to decreases blood supply to the organs. In your case, the heart. The heart rate increase due to the increased demand without the appropriate supply of blood. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Does gerd/acid reflux always cause stimulation of the vagus nerve? If yes, are symptoms of stimulation different from those of anxiety?
Vagus: Interesting question. Symptoms of stimulation of the vagus nerve are not usually associated with anxiety. The vagus nerve has many functions and i won't go into all of them here do to space limitations. Reflux can cause stimulation of the nerve and chest pain and synocope/near synocpe (passing out) can happen but that's often in severe cases and usually with cold/hot beverages/drinks. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Seizure Treatment: Vagus nerve stimulation involves the surgical implantation of a small device, similar to a pacemaker, in the chest with wires under the skin which are wrapped around the vagus nerve in the neck. Vns has been found effective in the treatment of some patients with seizures. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Electrically: An electrode is implanted that is hooked to a pulse generator and the nerve is stimulated. Depending on where the electrode is placed and what the desired result is, this would be the end result. To my knowlege, vbloc is not available in the USA other than perhaps a research center under rigidly controlled experimental protocols. Interesting question, why do you ask? ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

VNS: is a type of highly successful neuromodulation therapy for refractory seizures and depression. In the future VNS therapy will be used for CHF and likely other conditions. Tiny electrical impulses are delivered to the Vagus Nerve in the neck to modulate brainstem activity in the case of VNS for seizures and depression. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

What is the vagus nerve or 'mini brain' and what are some tests i can get to see if mine is malfunctioning?
1st, take your pulse: The vagus nerve is a nerve that goes directly from the brain to various organs to run normal activities like regulation of the gut activity, heart rate and gland secretion. Irritation of the nerve often causes a decline in pulse rate (and lower blood pressure, dizziness and /or fainting). ...Read more
