Why does my Blood Pressure spike while going through episode of Acid Reflux?

    I was about to go to the emergency room because my BP spiked while my acid reflux was acting up. I felt a weird sensation in my chest and head; I felt really bad. Just when I was about to leave I decided to ride it out and it subsided a bit.
    My BP is 130/87 now and I feel good. I'm currently taking Prilosec but they say it takes 4 days to kick in so maybe that's why it didn't work. I actually had to take some Tums to keep the acid reflux down. I'll be visiting a Gastroenterologist very soon. Has anyone elses BP skyrocketed while they was having an episode of acid reflux and what did you do to control it? What is the cause? This all seems strange.
