Hello,

All your symptoms are due to heartburn.
Take antacids and ginger tea or supplement to ease the symptoms.
Avoid caffeinated drinks, oily/spicy foods. Have dinner 4 hours before going to bed.
Sleep with raised head to ease heartburn.

If still, no improvement should see a gastroenterologist for further evaluation and most specific treatment.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Albana Sejdini, General & Family Physician

My husband is 55. Recently been having rapid heart rate, exhaustion and bad heartburn /reflux. He is beginning to get very concerned and works himself up even more wondering if it could be a heart issue. He won t admit it but sometimes seems to have a little confusion going on as well. Any advice you can offer would be much appreciated.

I feel kind of silly asking this, but my heart rate (resting) has been elevated all day -- ranging from 107 early am, up and down from 130 - 180 most of the day. I ve been having episodes like this for several months, but not this bad or long lasting. I guess I m just not sure what to do. Bp avgs 120/78 - 130/88.
