For the past 4 yrs i've been experiencing what I call "stomach spasms" they now seem to be more frequent as they were a couple of yrs ago when my father was dying of cancer. What happends is these spasms will suddenly come i will feel a "sensation" in my stomach that goes down to my grion area my heart will go very very fast and i feel like i'm going to black out. My heart feels like its pounding in my head it will last about a minute then i'll be very tired after these episodes. I have acid reflux and take nexium for it but its so expensive i was only taking it every few days i now take it everyday. These "spasms" seem to come when i'm holding my stomach muscles tight but i'm not realizing it also is it ok to eat crackers in the middle of the night? I know this sounds stupid but the acid reflux makes my stomach ache if its very empty in the night as i don't eat past 6pm and seems i'm hungry in the night. I've been sent for heart tests and have worn a heart monitor but they never catch what i'm expereincing at all, its very frustrating and i feel like i'm going to die when these episodes happen as i also run out of breath.
