Thank you! I've been having severe night time panic for a while now. I'll wake up in the middle of the night with horrible pressure/pain in my stomach/chest area--or nausea and then super rapid heart rate. I'll get to the E.R. and everything will be fine with my heart--I'll just be having Inappropriate Sinus Tach 120-180 bpm's. Finally had a doc diagnose Gerd, haven't picked up my Protonix scrip yet, because it's middle of the night and again pounding heart and stomach. I "google" heart and GERD and get your explanation of inflamed nodes in the esophagus! I think I know what's going on! Thank you so much! Been so afraid it's my heart--I think it's my esophagus!
