Reflux as related to the heart

Posted By ed on October 20, 1998 at 08:15:11:







I have been diagnosed with reflux into my esophagus. When it occurs
I develope a rapid heart beat, "chest pain and tightness", and high
blood pressure for a short period of time. I feel my doctor is very
competant, but just wanted to ask if these symptoms are "common"
with acid reflux. I feel as if I am having "The big one" when this
occurs. I would appreciate any opinions you have on this.
Thank you.
Ed C.
