Does the light sweats go with GERD

User Profile
I have severe reflux & since September I have noticed that off & on my skin gets moist & clammy! I read that it could be from GERD & my body trying to cool itself off from the heartburn. I went to the ER a month ago with chest pains & left arm & jaw pain & they did an EKG & cardiac lab work & said my heart is good that I have reflux. Does the light sweats go with that? I'm a 34 year old and I weigh 190 & am 5 ft 8.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. All your symptoms are due to acid reflux and until and unless it gets managed you will keep having these symptoms. Supportive care with antacids, prokinetics and diet lifestyle adjustment is mandatory here. Visit oru GERD health center for further guidance.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
