I've been having these symptoms for about a week now... does anyone have a suggestion as to what could be wrong? had my blood pressure done and it was 100/80 which is normal... don't know what is going on an it is starting to affect my work. the headaches have been going on for about two weeks, the light headedness started on friday, i can be sitting at my desk and start to feel light headed... couldnt get off my bed on friday cause every time i stood up i nearly fell over... the heartburn started last week wednesday, after i threw up and is accompanied by constant nausea... i am generally a very healthy and fit person but this is really bothering me and doesn't seem to be getting any better... can anyone help?

Hi
Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
In all probability, your symptoms are due to acidity, gastric reflux, with or without H pylori infection. You need to get a carbon urea breath test to rule out this infection. It could also be hiatal hernia. Treatment is a combination of drugs to reduce the acid and lifestyle changes. You will need to take a combination of medications (under medical supervision) like a proton pump inhibitor such as omeprazole, lansoprazole or pantoprazole empty stomach in the morning and an antacid gel after meals for complete relief.
Life style changes that will help include: Avoid heavy meals and eat frequent small meals. Avoid too much of caffeine, tea, smoking, fried food and drinks both alcoholic and non alcoholic fuzzy ones. Avoid heavy exercises within 4 hours of a heavy meal. Raise the head end of the bed by pillows to 30 degrees. Avoid lying down for least 2 hours after food. Maybe these tips will help you.
Please consult your PCP for primary examination and see a gastroenterologist.
Take care!
