Starting in July I have had these issues with eating and going to sleep. The issue is that I start getting heart palipitations and wake up while I try to go to sleep. This mostly happens around dinner time but I do notice it a little less during lunch. In August I had visited a cardiologist and had a ultrasound of the heart and everything was ok. The dr said it would eventually go away. In September I had an endoscopy done and the doctor said I had an inflamed stomach. The culture showed I had an infection and was given the two antibotics and prilosec. The doctor also said to continue to take Prilosec twice a day (with no end time). I've switched over to Nexium since I haven't had much luck on Prilosec and it has helped a little.
It is almost 2 months now and last night I ran out of Nexium so I took Prilosec and had the same issue. Last night I ate a fried chicken sandwhich as well as french fries and wass up until 2am. Then woke up at 6. I am not 100% convinced yet that Nexium is really helping as I have only been on it for about a week.
Is it possible that my stomach hasn't healed? Who would you suggest I visit next to see what could be causing this..an allergist another GI doctor? Are there specialists that are balanced in both?
This is really impacting my sleep and my ability to function. I've never had these issues up until this past July. I'm 37 170lbs and 6' if that helps. Blood pressure is around normal. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
My primary thinks this is all stress related.
