I have acid reflux, I got out of bed and blacked out?

I have acid reflux and my dad and brother have it. When my sinuses are bad it’s always worse. Well it’s been bad this past week and my son had baseball games out in this heat. Water taste bad when sinuses are draining so I know I didn’t drink enough water. I woke up after being a sleep for about a hour and my acid reflux was bad. Tummy was hurting and felt like needed to throw up. When I set up I started sweating bad and got light headed. I got out of bed trying to get my Meds and blacked out for a sec. fell on floor. Got right up and got some Meds used bathroom and was able to go to sleep. Reflux is bothering me still but know more than normal. I havjet got enough sleep in last few weeks ether

  1. Hi..
    Thanks for the query..

    It looks like severe acid reflux and many a times it is more bothering when you sleep as due to the posture the acid tend to easily flow upward..
    So along with medication some lifestyle and diet modifications can help..I would suggest you to consult a Gastroenterologist and get evaluated and a thorough clinical evaluation
    and investigations like upper G.I Endoscopy can help in diagnosis and treatment can be done

    Also I would like to add that if the symptoms of blackout and fainting occurs again it is better to get evaluated and an ear examination and MRI SCAN should be done..

    All the best..

    You can be advised to take Proton Pump Inhibitors like Omeprazole or Pantoprazole..
    Take antacids like Milk of magnesia..
    Avoid spicy food and drink plenty of water..
    Always take walk after meals and take your dinner atleast 2 hours before sleep..
    Try loosing weight if you are obese..
    You should sleep with head slightly raised as compared to feet..
