Re: Indigestion and Palpitations
acid indigestion/reflux...had symptoms for 7 months myself...from asthma-like symptoms to chest pains, upper back pain..wheezing..THE LOT!
It all began with HEART SYMPTOMS! like palps, flutters, pauses...At first, like you, I was convinced that I had heart disease or an irregular heartbeat. I even saw a cardiologist...Had 6 ECGs and a 24 Hr ECG and everything was normal!
I was then given both Omeprazole and Lansoprazole...Took the former for 1 month..It wasnt working so my doc switched me to 30mg of Lans and I took it for 3 months and decided to stop taking it to see if it had any effect...Things are just about starting to calm down for me..Its about time after 7 horrible months.
I also had and still have spells of lightheadedness etc..The jury is still out on whats causing this...A theory I have is that reflux can cause palps and funny heart sensations..and even lightheadedness...I think it ties in with the vagus nerve.
