Hi,

 

I am waiting for a date to have a gastroscopy and colonoscopy. I have been told I have a dilated small intestine and a possible hiatus hernia.

 

Recently I have been getting (what I hope to be) acid reflux. I tend to go really weak and get a rush of blood (to the head),  nausea and a very painful stabbing pain where my heart is. This makes me feel as if I am having a heart attack and my blood pressure goes wild.

 

I feel that anxiety is getting the better of me. Do other people who have been diagnosed with acid reflux or similar issues get the same symptoms - I need to put my mind at ease.

 

Thanks,

 

Lewis

Yes. I'd call it a sudden attack. Starts as the pain, heart rate increase, sometimes light headed, have to stand up. Nothing is comfortable.

Thank you - I seem to have it after every meal - Might be more GERD related. I feel that I don't have to panic when it happens now - and I end up feeling okay, even though it is still very painful.

Yes, it can be scary. I am thinking when this hits what I am feeling is part of the esophagus pushing up through the hiatal. 

 

I usually drink a little baking soda with water, and seems to help it. Though I notice sometimes this will happen numerous times a day when it is happening at all if that makes sense.
