Dear,

All the symptoms you are experiencing can be because of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD).

GERD is known phenomenon in pregnancy. Increased progesterone secretion during pregnancy relaxes the esophageal sphincter and leads to symptoms of GERD (sternal pain, epigastric pain, nausea, uneasiness).

Magnesium or Vitamin D deficiency cannot lead to these symptoms.

You should see gynecologist, enlist your symptoms and start doxyalamine succinate under his/her care.

All the best

Thank you for your answer , I forgot to mention that the palpitations only happen at night and that the pain on my sternum is really XXXXXXX right in the middle and really ache but even if I just eat pasta (without sauce) and goes away again the first time was really painful but this time was less painful I've got no bp problem not smoking or over indulging myself so hope it can't be heart realated

Hi,

It does not look like you are having heart problem. The symptoms of palpitations in the night and pain on the sternum may be secondary to GERD. To confirm about the diagnosis, it is very important to be physically examined by a doctor. Please visit your gynecologist and get yourself started on medications as previously advised.
