Hello. Thanks for puttinh your query in HCM. I am a Gastroenterologist.

I will advise you to take a proton pump inhibitor like rabeprazole and a prokinetic agent like domperidone before breakfast. And tablet famotidine 40mg od after dinner. I found this combination very useful in my patients with this diagnosis.

Also avoid spicy and fatty meals. Dont take tea or coffee.

Brief Answer:
You should take medicines for 6 to 8 weeks

Detailed Answer:
Welcome back

Palpitations can occur if there is acid reflux so it is associated with reflux only.
To relieve this you may take 2-3 tsf of antacid which is to be taken after meals

You should take medicines for 6 to 8 weeks

I dont think there is any requirement of digestive enzymes. take the above medicines and observe your symptoms. If no relief then again we can discuss

Wish you a good health

I am 56 years old and about 50 pounds overweight. I have had problems with acid reflux which seems to be under control now with medication. Three days ago I started having a fluttering feeling just below my sterum area. It has continued off and on now for 3 days. It is not painful, and I am pretty sure it is not my heart. I started a healthy lowfat diet and have been walking approximately 40 minutes a day for at least 5 days a week for the last 3 months. I have lost 12 pounds. I have been feeling better and more energetic, until these flutterings ( or spasms) started. They just a nuisance;but , I do wonder what they are and wherther or not I should see a doctor. Over the last couple of years, my family doctor has sent me to a cardiologist and gastro specialists who determined my heart was fine, and that I had acid reflux.
