am waiting to have an endoscopy (my doc wants to rule out any heart problems cause i ahve wheezing and shortness of breath when symptoms are bad) anyway he put me on a prescription PPI , not helping much- seems to help as much as the acid blockers(otc) but i got slightly dizzy after i eat but when i started taking the ppi i was really dizzy and not just after i ate- i stopped it for 3 days and i still get dizzy and unbalanced after i eat but goes away in an hour- i also am dizzy when i wake up in the morning- does anyone else have this side effect or ive ehad can be a result of the reflux/gastrtits

    Hi Matt,

    Check your PPI - dizziness can be a side effect - I didn't realise mine was making me feel dizzy until I came off them. They can make you incredibly tired too! Takes them a few days to get out of your system.

    Dizziness can be a symptom of taking acid reducers. On another note, reflux and dehydration can go hand in hand. Drink plenty of water, you could just be dehydrated. Eat fruits and veg, lay off the processed foods. Hope you get better soon.

    replying to myself- lolwas supposed to get an endoscopy but havent yet, but i feel like i have all symptoms of hiatel hernia- i kept on a low acid diet and took otc acid blockers for a year almost and it slowly went away - im so happy im back to my regular well being - sometimes i get symptoms but mild now , havent taken a pill in over a month now i still watch what i eaat and dont indulge a lot of food or quickly- i wonder if this is gastritis and it is cured or if my hernia somehow got smaller or lining went back in my stomach?/ im just happy- i mean i had terrible symptoms- shortness of breath , and dehydrated when i had acute attacks, aslo dizzy even without the blockers- constant burping, sour stomack, excess saliva(to neutralize acid) bad metal or blood taste in my mouth-

    Ppis take 2 weeks to get out of system according to my doc. I got tingling in fingers when I was on ppis I thing this was due to vitamin absorption. This caused me to become anxious lol. My docs solution was anti depressants. But I came off the Ppis after seeing a different doc with another opinion. Personally I don't like ppis
