Palpitations Accompanied By Excessive Sweating, Weakness And Dizziness With A History Of Gerd?
Good evening … r nLately I am always sweating (even though I don’t do anything) headaches, no energy, weakness, before I felt that my heart was beating abnormally (when I finished my activity), what kind of disease do you have? r nSome time ago I was diagnosed with GERD, but isn’t it a digestive disease ?? Does it have anything to do with how I feel now ???
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease) is indeed a disorder that occurs in the digestive tract, specifically the esophagus. Even so, the symptoms that appear can vary, including because they affect the function of other organs.
In people with GERD, the valve that normally limits the lower part of the esophagus to the stomach is incompetent, so it fails to close properly after the bolus of food passes through the esophagus. This condition causes acid from the stomach to reflux (back flow) into the esophagus and trigger irritation. The main symptom experienced by people with GERD is discomfort, which mainly appears around the gut, chest, and throat. This discomfort can be in the form of shortness of breath, stinging, heat, pain, propping up, phlegm, nausea, and so on. Due to this series of complaints, appetite can be reduced. In the end, inadequate nutritional intake can cause you to experience weakness, dizziness, and lack of energy. Furthermore, the discomfort you experience can cause the body to produce many stress hormones. One of the effects of this hormone is to increase the work of the heart and lungs. As a result, your heart rate and breathing can become faster and stronger as you experience.
However, not only GERD can raise your complaints at this time. Several other factors, such as thyroid gland disorders, anemia, hypoglycemia, viral or bacterial infections, excessive anxiety disorders, drug side effects, heart attacks, etc. can also trigger discomfort as you experience.
If the complaint feels quite burdensome for you, try to see a doctor directly. If a genuine complaint is triggered by GERD, you may be referred to an internal medicine specialist for further treatment. To treat GERD, the doctor can give you several types of drugs, to perform surgery if there is an underlying anatomical abnormality (such as a hiatal hernia).
In the meantime, all you need to do is:
Avoid consumption of foods and drinks that often trigger GERD, for example fatty foods, fried foods, coffee, tea, chocolate, mint, onions, alcohol
Do not smoke
Keep your weight so you are not too fat
Stay away from stress
Give a break between eating and sleeping (lying down) at least 3 hours
Don't eat too much at night
Elevate your bed, from waist to head, while sleeping
Get regular sleep
Avoid taking drugs carelessly
Hope it helps ..
