Thank you for your query.
All your symptoms direct to possible GERD- gastro-esophagyeal-reflux disease. You have metabolic syndrome comprising impaired glucose tolerance, high BP, possible overweight ?? also. All these, along with alcohol intake, make one's protective lining of stomach and initial food tube inflammed. This creates lots of acidity causing stomach upset, abnormal bowel movements, loss of hunger, pain in upper abdomen, sometimes nauseating feeling, and also feeling as if one might have heart trouble.
Please take help of over the counter antacid as of now which include T Pantoprazole D 40 mg to be taken 40 minutes before you ingest anything twice a day. Also, squeez a lemon in soda water and drink it frequently. Do not have meat and egg for a couple of days but have ample of yogurt with plain bread and fresh fruits, but no fruit juice nor milk. If you smoke, it adds to the symptoms so please do not smoke for time being. Later you must find a way to stop smoking with professional help.
Get your ECG (EKG) also done to rule out any primary or parallel heart damage.
Once your symptoms settle, do get yourself examined by a good Gastroenterologist and Cardilogist to avoid such incidence again.
I hope this helps you. get back to me for any further query.

I went to a GI doc because I was having sharp/brief pain in the gallbladder area (this has happened sporadically for past 2 years) then I started getting odd bloating/full feeling in Dec with increased pain. Ultrasound showed gall bladder was fine (this was 3rd ultrasound), but liver was possibly slightly enlarged. My liver enzymes were slightly elevated-but next test came back normal and I don t have Hep C. Upon chatting with doc, she thought I might have acid reflux issues and gave me antacids-my symptoms actually got worse but it did help with what I had initially was wheezing at night (which is why she suspected acid reflux)-though now even that has returned. NOW I feel so full/bloated that it s actually hard to breathe or sit--after a meal or anytime really whether I ve eaten or not...I am so absolutely frustrated and feel that I m being made to do a food diary to see if something triggers it when anything triggers it and nothing s just continuous. As a note, this started in Dec and I started with antacid meds just in Jan...and the breathing issues have been about 2 weeks driving me mad and I m actually short of breath talking even at times...I talk talk talk to the doc and it s lets follow up in 6 weeks...6 weeks of trouble breathing or eating even? I m stunned...and work in the medical field myself...and I m just still stunned and not knowing what to do right now...
