Recommended Posts

For those of you who may have acid reflux with celiac disease, do you get it so bad it feels more like you are having a heart attack? I have attacks like this now and then. I'm on perscription prilosec 40mg. 1x daily. I had a stress test 3 yrs. ago. Didn't show anything. Just had another attack Sun. p.m. and should maybe gone to the E.R. but didn't. Went to my cardiologist today though. Set up another test. So I guess I wonder has anyone with celiac have any heart problems stemming from celiac? Thanks, Sister golden hair

I am 45 yrs old. I have had lots of problems since I was 7 or 8. I have had acid reflux maybe atotal of 10 times that I can remember but I can remmeber having what I thought were heart attacks from the age of 17. Everytime i've gone to the er they told me it was either stress or anxiety.

Since I have been gluten free for nearly a year haven't had any of those symptoms until the day after the New Year. We took my mom out to Golden Corral for New Years Day dinner. Was very careful in what I ordered, or so I thought.

That evening I felt fine but the next morning I didn't feel so good. It progressively got worse to the point I couldn't breath, my left arm felt kind of tingly, Dizzy, etc. Finally I couldn't take it anymore and asked my sweetie to take me to the ER. It was bad. Anyway, they checked my heart, my blood pressure, my gallbladder, my blood sugar, even ran a cat scan for blood clots in my lungs. Everything was normal. I told the er doc about my gluten free status and that I had gone to Golden Corral the night before. Thank goodness he was Celiac educated, because he told me I had a classic symptom of getting glutened. He hgave me an IV with Pepsid and 3 tablespoons of Mylanta. I quit hurting within 10 minutes. I went home an hour later with no pain at all. I felt like crap the next day plus my chest felt bruised, like I had been hit. But other than that was ok.

I used to have reflux so bad I'd be in tears! It was painful to eat, painful to drink, and painful to breathe!

Since being gluten free though, it hardly bothers me ever. And I have a hiatal hernia. now all I get is hiccups.
