Hi doctor,

There is heaviness in the body always. I feel like bursting whenever I lay down. I am grinding teeth, have dizziness, and gastrointestinal reflux.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

The bursting and acid reflux problem can be connected to each other. But dizziness might not be due to acid reflux. For acid reflux, you need to take Pantoprazole like antacid for a week. Avoid the intake of excess spicy foods. Head should be elevated by putting a pillow when going to sleep. It is advisable to go to bed two hours after taking the meal.

For dizziness, your blood pressure and sugar level should be checked first. You need to get checked your detailed otological evaluation for primary workup. Beta Histidine can be taken for dizziness. The anemia also can be causative sometimes, so rule out it by CBC.
