I HAD A SEVERE GERD REACTION IN THAT I EXPERIENCED A SEVERE BURNING SENSATION IN MY CHEST AND VOMITING. I AM ALSO DIABETIC AND I BLACKED OUT BRIEFLY AT THE SAME TIME. I WENT TO THE EMERGENCY ROOM AND WAS GIVEN A CAT SCAN AND AN EKG; THE RESULTS WERE NORMAL. MY BLOOD SUGAR LEVEL TWO HOURS AFTER THE INCIDENT WAS VVERY HIGH FOR ME - 166. COULD MY BLOOD SUGAR HAVE CAUSED ME TO BLACK OUT?

Hello.

It would be really difficult if not impossible for any of us to speculate what caused you to black out. Everyone is unique and what may cause severe symptoms in one person may not affect another at all.

I am presuming you are medication for both the Diabetes and GERD. You need to pursue all this with your primary doctor.

I pray you can get answers, proper treatment and relief soon.
