My acid reflux was really bothering me yesterday so I googled vagal nerve because I've read that it can affect acid reflux and the heart. I wondered what the connection was. I found out that if the vagal nerve is damaged, or irritated it can cause arrythmias, acid reflux due to digestion problems, CHOKING,and swallowing problems all of which I have. So I thought about going to a neurologist but decided....what would they tell me? They'd either say I had a problem or not or put me on some med or tell me to just live with it. So I guess there's no point in getting help. I choose to just live with it and in the mean time, I'll research things that can be done naturally like losing weight. I'm sure my weight might be irritating the vagal nerve. So this is a great motivator to do what I have to do.
