Brief Answer:
Need more details

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I would like to know your age, weight and occupation. Were you given triple therapy for H Pylori in the recent time.

This helps me to analyse you better and the stress levels you may have at the occupation. Stress acutely raises the symptoms. Dizziness is not common in GERD (Reflux disease).

Pantoprazole is known to cause dizziness in some. Also long term acidity symptoms can cause decreased absorption of iron and other nutrients which can cause anemia and weakness and thus the dizziness. For that I suggest you get serum ferritin levels checked along with Vit B12 checked.
For now you can have Syrup Sucral 15ml thrice a day after food.

However at this juncture Gastroenterologist specialists have the true experience to take any call.

Awaiting any better information available.

Brief Answer:
Serial BP and Heart rate measurements

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Though the breath test was negative a trial of triple therapy for H pylori can be tried. Along with it Sucralfate syrup which I said in my last reply should work for you.

However you shouild be cautious about your life style. Relook into it and make necessary changes like regular diet, stress relaxing techniques, proper medication for anxiety etc.

I would be interested in getting a serial BP measurements in this case when dizziness is a significant complaint.

Hope this helps
