Hi just wondering if anybody suffers from similar symptoms, i suffer from what i think are palpitations but is it possible that acid can travel up towards the throat area it feels lile a thump or a strange beat in the middle of the chest and isnt always just after ive eaten, i also feel very full of air but don't really suffer any heartburn, i do get stomach ache but think its due to the trapped wind. Ive had lots of ecgs and an echo all fine ao far for my heart but it worries me everytime i feel this sensation these feelings come and go also i can go weeks with nothing and i also get air hunger occaaionally, any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

    Yes I get palpitations sometimes if my stomach is full of gas. I sort of have to push them down with the gas and they go away really weird! My worse symptom Is my lump in throat sensation though!

    Hi

    I have had the throat clearing and a cough for 8 years now and yes acid can travel to your throat as my teeth are also suffering now.

    I have pains in my stomach, feeling sick and just generally feeling like crap.

    I had an endoscopy which showed a hiatus hernia and ph test (which is awful) that showed I have high levels of acid.

    I am due to have an operation next week so keeping by my fingers crossed that it works.

    Hi Rachel, have you had investigation by a gastroenterologist? they will look for acid and also do a biopsy - ask them to check for Celiac Disease also. Your symptoms could be LPR. the acid can affect your ear, nose and throat.

      Even if they show no celiac desease that test will not show celiac gene or gluten sensitive which will have the same symptoms. I know because that is my case and for 2 years they told me it was reflux/LPR and now they have no idea. but they disregarded the reflux. They don't accept gluten sensitivity like a condition and at the same time they have no idea, I got myself a functuanal medicine spe but symptoms are not any better after 2 months so at this poont I'm actually worse. ;-

      Understand where you are com ing from. the biopsy for Celiac disease has to be taken from a few points in the small intestine, and an alert Gastroenterologist is what is needed. My husbands biopsy was atypical and even though he had had numerous blood tests to try and find out what his problem was, he still had to have the blood test to confirm anti bodies. Coeliac Disease can be a minefield to diagnose, but with a negative gene test at least you can rule it out. But having the gene doesn't mean you will get it, just be alert for it Gluten sensitivity is recognised in Australia. There is also another condition which is corrected/dealt with  by a low FODMAP diet the condition displays a lot of gut symptoms as well.

      Right, only 1 in 35 will get it so is not so bad but is better not to take that chance. In my case I'm totally grain free and I have not seen any difference in the symptoms I have which are not exactly the symptoms for this so right now I'm just a guinea pig because they have no idea where to move from here.  Now, they suspect my chest pain and rib-pain is from my back issues so they refered me to a spine specialist.  I'm also getting therapies from a chiro (vagus nerve and scholiosis) but so far no improvements. ;-(
