stomach knots + lightheadedness

Posted By Jesse on September 10, 1998 at 21:46:58:







I'm 25 years old.  Two weeks ago after a few days of feeling lightheaded I went through a very difficult night of severe stomach discomfort, like my stomach was in knots.  My heart was pounding, I didn't sleep all night and I felt weak and shaky.  I went to the emergency room where they took x-rays and some blood tests.  They diagnosed me with constipation and told me to get some laxatives.  After four more days of these symptoms I went to a Doctor who prescribed Zantac.  I still have the lightheadedness/spacey feeling most of the time but not as severe.  My stomach still goes into knots at night when I'm trying to sleep.  I feel weird, like after a hangover.  The Zantac helps the burning but food still comes up into my esophogus.  I've lost seven pounds in the last few weeks.
