Hello doctor,

I am a 53-year-old female. I have dizziness and nausea, light-headed like jet lag, weak knees, spasms in arms and legs from time to time, and always hungry. Appetite is normal, no colds, no cough, and no fever. My blood pressure is 150/82. Sleep is normal but I always feel like lacking sleep. I burp frequently, had heartburn on the first day, then stomach cramps. I am previously diagnosed with GERD. Currently, I am taking antacid three times a day after eating. I am experiencing all these symptoms for three days now.
