I have been having this problem going on for the past month or so not all the time but once or twice a week. I drive a truck locally and i have narrowed it down to when i fell the worst. After i eat a meal about an hour or so later i just fell not my self and spaced out. when I felt the worst I went into a drug store that was close by to check my blood pressure and it was 185/89 with a pulse of 120. that scared me so i called EMS and they took me to the hospital and said that i was more than likely dehydrated and gave me fluids . The ER doctor said that i had heart palpitations. All blood work and EKG was good no signs of blockage or heart attack. once I got home I stopped drinking caffeine thinking that that could have been a problem. that was the wrong thing to do because I suffered caffeine withdraws. So Its been a week now and I am still getting nervous and having indigestion with burping and bowl movements , slit muscle pain in back and chest about an hour after meals. Not sure whats going on If any one has any input it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks and if you have any question i will answer.

  • If it was me, I would suggest keeping a food log of what you eat when this happens. Also, I probably would get a follow up opinion and tests to just 'make sure' all is well cardiac wise (never too safe). It sounds similar to peptic ulcer/ gallbladder/ acid reflux minus the high blood pressure/heart rate. Do you know your normal range for your blood pressure/heart rate? It could be due to being in an ER and pain. Also, I would request a copy of my records from the ER and take them to a good internal medicine MD. I have been a nurse for almost ten years; Believe me, you want to get a second opinion or at least research it all yourself. I know that sounds awful, but better safe than sorry. Try not to freak out though! I'm sure you will be fine:) Post updates.

  • Hi,What is your age,and are you overweight and what is your diet,generally speaking?Also,what are you eating and drinking prior to the commencement of these symptoms-eg:carbohydrates,protein,cakes etc.....Have you had your cholesterol levels checked?Do you smoke or have a family history of Diabetes?Have you ever had gastrointestinal surgery or do you have fructose intolerance that you are aware of?The heart palpitations,nervousness and some other symptoms could possibly be due to releasing too much Epinephrine after meals.The other symptoms suggest you could possibly have either Gastric Dumping syndrome,with or without reactive Hypoglycaemia, the burping may possibly be due to H Pylori infection,excessive air swallowing or stress.

  • Get a stool sample, check for a parasite called blastocystis huminus. It was the cause of my nightmare. Good luck

  • I am not a doctor, but have seen hundreds.I suggest you get a stool sample for blastocystis huminus, some people have no side effects some have all, I did and it took a self diagnostic through some other sites like this. i lost thirty five pounds had numerous tests and nothing until I asked them to check for a parasite. Good luck.
