    Are you taking anything for the acid problem? Many times the medications can cause dizziness. Also, if you have anxiety, which I also do, dizziness can be a problem, not sure if it is in my head or not, but usually I can actually control the feelings of being off balance, slightly dizzy, by concentrating on other things. Anyway, just curious about what you are taking.

    Hi Rintz

    I also suffer from bouts of dizziness and take the same medication as you although I do not think that this is the cause. I just try and concentrate and hope it does not last too long. My GERD is also medically proven and I do my best to help control it with a reasonably sensible diet.

    All the best

    These are just music in my ears. Indeed I just assumed the giddy feeling is part of reflux. It used to be quite bad, but things have gotten better. It would grip me for quite a while and gradually lift. It is preceded by the reflux flare in the pit of the chest. On rare occasions there is some pain too. Blood pressure and heart rate could then go through the roof. On quite a number of times the gerd specialists felt like handing me to the cardio guys. I would remind them i came to them when the cardio docs had no clue too. To be honest, it's not a nice feeling.

    I can relate,

    Before I understood i had GERD I would get lightheaded, dizzy and occasionally heart palpitations after meals, particularly large meals. I've also been to cardiology and had tests done with no results.

    I remember reading something about inflammation of the esophagus/stomach + food can place pressure on a stimuli for these symptoms.
