General & Family Physician Dr. Nsah Bernard's  Response
Hello,

Thanks for posting on HCM,

Well your acid reflux may not be related to the twitching of your arms but rather due to gastritis or GERD which might require that you receive some specific treatment for that. You might be required to see a doctor or a gastroenterologist for evaluation to determine the cause so as to provide specific treatment.
Twitching or weakness of your left arm could be due to a nerve problem. I do not think it is MS based only on this. You could just be feeling a little anxious and that could manifest with a twitch. Idiopathic muscle twitching is very common and could signify nothing. Just stay calm and try to do some little arm exercises (stretching for example).

Hope this helps

I have always had acid reflux, It has been getting worse over the past few year and I have an appointment schedule for next month, but I m not sure if I should be seen sooner. I almost all the time have a stomach ache, and it feels worse in the morning. Symptoms:Nausea, gas, constipation, diarrhea, pain in stomach, occasional warm sensation in stomach, excessive saliva, horseness, cough, fatigue, and my stomach will sometimes make weird sounds.I m just really afraid it s something bad, or if I will be fine to wait to see the gastroenterologist.

I have just returned to work following time off from a workers comp claim from an injury back in 2011, but was just recently taken off work this last December. I do not know exactly what is causing everything or if is from multiple issues. i will send one MRI for cervical spine and will try to find the lower lumbar diagnosis. My main concerns/symptoms are as follows: I wake up to stiffness and pain at times unbearable to the point of nausua/throwing up. that pain will mainly gererate from my neck . i get dizzy/ lightheaded now even my tongue and teeth hurt my legs almost always ache to the point that i want to cry at times, they feel like a bad tooth, a cavity as well as my arms sometimes feel as though cold air is going thru my bones. i itch a lot sometimes to the point of losing it.. also i do have bad teeth where i cannot even bite right, my jaw cracks and at times while my bite is so far off that i bite my tongue or lip... my teeth are very sensitive and weak as well, also my gums seem to be receeding?. always have acid reflux and possible ulcer and i have incontinence i wake up about 5-6 times a night....i am 50 yrs old. i better stop for now...also my memory is shot!! and my mind is in a fog most of the time cannot concentrate.

I was prescribed zantac 300 mg to take to treat some suspected acid reflux symptoms. however, it has caused a lot of stomach pain and nausea. I ve taken the pill with bread and crackers and plenty of water as online forums have recommended, and also tried taking 150 mg twice per day to see if smaller doses may help reduce problem, but to no avail. I know everyone reacts different, but are there acid reflux medications that work better for those with sensitive stomachs?

I believe I was infected with salmonella via a chicken salad sandwich on Thursday about 11am - and by 10pm I was experiencing explosive watery diarrhea and extreme chills with abdominal pain, wretching nonproductive vomiting (post Gastric Bypass 7yrs)....this continued until I had not urinated for 16 hours and had lost 14 pounds on the scale in 36 hours and was tachycardic 130bpm with a low bp 90/62...I went to ER, received 3 liters saline and urinated 50 cc, was sent home...I am now experiencing constant sweats with diarrhea slowing to every 3 hours. WBC , eisinophils below normal at er lab, other indicators of dehydration as expected...the sweats are a change - is this normal and what is the cause? or mechanism that is occuring in this infectious process?
