'Gastroesophageal reflux disease, or GERD, is a digestive disorder that affects the lower esophageal sphincter (LES), the ring of muscle between the esophagus and stomach. Many people, including pregnant women, suffer from heartburn or acid indigestion caused by GERD

Does anyone else have a problem with gas and acid reflux making their heart race and chest ache?

Does anyone else have a problem with gas and acid reflux making their heart race and chest ache? For the last few hours my chest is hurting and my heart is racing and at the same time i'm burping.

First do you have a weak immune system? Second have you taking any antibiotics? If so I would suggest getting a blood test for a chronic yeast infection. Don't let the Dr's talk you out of it or if they say they have never heard of it look it up on line. It's yeast that has gotten into the blood stream. I was positive and once treated with anti fungal med the pressure and heartburn in my chest went away. I had endoscopy just a couple month prior to asking for the blood test ( FB peep suggested the test) the grastro not only didn't help but said he found nothing wrong and told me to just keep taking the PPI's. So glad I had the blood test done. I still take meds for acid reflux ( if I don't watch what I eat) but wow so much better now.

I just had blood work done about two weeks ago and all they could find was that my b12 and viamin D was low. I'm on antibiotics now for a sinus infection and my immune systems seems fine except for the vitamin thing i just said.

Tonya Cress Just reg blood work does not test for chronic yeast. http://www.cdc.gov/.../candidiasis/invasive/index.html http://blood.ygoy.com/2010/10/21/blood-yeast-infections/ It's a simple blood test so I would at least rule out the possibility that it may be the problem.

Lynn Blanton Dietz my doc suggested I take antifungal tabs for a few week I only took for a couple but my reflux greatly improved when I did it I also started digestive enzymes at the same time so I'm not sure which helped me the most at that time.

Miriam Mustafa-Ragoobir If you were positive then most likely it was the anti fungal med. Just my opinion but just taking it a few days the problem will reoccur due to you may not have completely gotten it under control and symptoms might re appear. I took it for 20 days. After 2 weeks the pressure eased in my chest and reflux got better. I recently got sick and took 10 days of antibiotic and yep a month later I was suffering again. Now Dr has me taking the anti fungal med again and 3 days now on it and I'm starting to feel better but I'm going to take the whole 20 days just in case.

Lynn Blanton Dietz may I ask what meds you're taking and how much?

Miriam Mustafa-Ragoobir
Fungus is harder to get rid of than bacterial infections I'm going to try doing it the way the doc said

Here in Trinidad I doubt we have tests for systemic Candidiasis

Lynn Blanton Dietz you might have mentioned before but what tests exactly did you have? I'm looking for a new doctor.

Lynn Blanton Dietz Amarie Mc Blood Test
An Anti-Candida Antibodies, or Candida Immune Complexes test. There are 3 antibodies that should be tested to measure your immune system’s response to Candida – IgG, IgA, and IgM. High levels of these antibodies indicate that an overgrowth of Candida is present.

Miriam Mustafa-Ragoobir : here are the codes they use in the use for the lab test: Blood Test

I get trapped gas and its painful

Briggetta Mey
Oh yes I get that plenty times. Doctor diagnosed panic attacks but it is actually the air that pushes your lungs upwards and I find that as soon as I can get to burp the better I feel.

Kristi Smith
Yes . My heart starts racing , but then I will burp and it's starts slowing back down .
