I would insist that this might be due to heart disease
. THere is no way for acid reflux
to cause numbness in left hand and irregular heart beat.
Regular ECG can not visualise it, thet is why heart ultrasound
and Holters 24 hours ECG can definitelly rule it out.
Of course your symptoms can be caused by gastric reflux
disease. Usually all tests are negative with this condition (hope that Helicobacter Pylori
test were performed with upper GI endoscopy).
If you are completelly certain that this is only GERD here are some rules witch can help with the symptoms:
- you should take Omeprasole 40 mg(or Pantoprasole 40 mg, however in some cases it is less efective than Omeprasole) once a day in the morning before any meal during the month or so
- avoid coffee, fatty foods, fruit juices, soft drinks
- drink more water
- do not bunk down after a meal
- the last meal should be 2 hours before sleeping
One more thing, GERD is very often associated with asthma. There for, you should have it checked as well with blow test.
Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions.
