This can last for a few minutes or be constant throughout the day ( brain fog). I’m probably on the anxious side, however, this continues. It also worsens if I stand up or rise quickly. Given the testing that has already been completed, I’m not sure what else I can do. My diet is healthy and I stay hydrated throughout the day. I’m a otherwise healthy and fit 38 y/o male. My blood pressure does run high normal. I take zantac daily for GERD. This drives my crazy…any suggestions.
Although all your heart tests came back as normal, has anybody checked your blood pressure & pulse after standing up quickly?
Although rare, has POTS been considered in your case? While your symtpms don’t sound severe enough, you can read more here:
Also, has GERD been proven in your case? Zantac side effects include :
- Fast heart rate (tachycardia)
- Slow heart rate (bradycardia)
- Abnormal heart rhythms (arrhythmias)
If you still need to take it, maybe you should have an UGI endoscopy to make sure your esophagus is still OK.
Hope this helps,
