Hello and thanks for posting the Query
GERD itself explain all your symptoms. In my personal opinion you have to take precautions for GERD and reduce your anxiety or stress as much as possible. Stress is another cause for the symptoms.
Gastric emptying test gives you the answer of you other queries. Certain precautions you have to take are:
1. Avoid food that irritates your stomach.
2. Avoid alcohol, caffeine, aspirin, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications.
3. Eat small meals more frequently.
4. Avoid lying flat immediately following a meal. Walk or sit straight at least 30-45 minutes after every meals
5. Elevate the head of your bed.
6. Sleep on your left side.
7. Weight loss if you are overweight
8. Take antacids after meals and at bedtime:
9. Take a stomach acid-blocker like Ranitidine , Take a proton pump inhibitor medicine like Omeprazole
10. Take your medications as directed, Don't skip doses of your medication. This makes them less effective. Don't stop taking your medication just because you feel better.
11. Do regular exercise atleast 5 days per week.

Feel free to consult your doctor at any stage if your feel symptoms are worsen and medication not helping you.

Write back for any follow up query.

Best Wishes and get well soon.

Yes, I have a 13 yr old that has been vomiting and has had constipated/diarrhea for a month now. She has been seen by her physician and was prescribed Prilosec and miralax. She appears to be full of stool ( according to her x-ray). She is still having dull stabbing pain in her stomach and is still vomiting daily. She expresses vomiting is not always with nausea. I hope she will not need an endoscopy. I am wondering if it s GERD or IBS. Thanks for your response.

My friend just got out of the hospital, he was being treated for pneumonia and asthma. His complaints include the feeling of being choked, phlegm in the throat that s hard to expel and he has to drink water so some phlegm will come out and whenever he has the choking feeling, he also gets dizzy and increased heartbeat. Together with this, he also has hoarse voice right now, and loss of smell. He is 27 years old. He did endoscopy and the doctor found that thick mucus in his throat developed. He then prescribed Omeprazole and a nasal spray for the nose. However my friend is not very confident with the ENT doctor s diagnosis. With the choking feeling, he feels something is wrong. My question is, with the feeling of being choked and just generally different feeling , is he at risk for esophageal cancer? He smoked before (non-consistent in college), and very rarely drink alcohol.

Hi. Over the past month or so, any time I turn over to the other side in while in bed, my heart beats quickly, and I feel as though I just got finished running in a race; I have that exhausted feeling without the hard breathing. Also throughout the day, I have a shortness of breath and feel exhausted when doing anything like the laundry, making the bed, or cleaning. I have to sit down for about 10-15 minutes to rest. I also have GERD. I had an EKG, and that came back normal. I currently take 40 mg of Prilosec, and 100 mg of Zoloft. All of my bloodwork came back normal: WBC count RBC count, cholesterol, etc. I am scheduled to have a stress test, but I was wondering if it could be something else? Thank you!
