Dizzy Dame Posted November 26, 2005 Report Share Posted November 26, 2005 Hi all, I know that Dysautonomia affects the GI tract. I think I'm beginning to expierence the wrath! For the past two weeks, any time I lay down for more than 30 seconds, I get searing heartburn. I mean I can't sleep at night! It's beginning to hurt to swallow food too!I had a few questions:1. Could this a sign that my gallbladder needs special attention?2. Can heartburn do real damage?3. Can anyone guess how quickly I need to get to a doctor?I ask the third question because my internist is on vacation for the next two weeks, so I'd have to go see a different doctor, or go to urgent care. If I need to take this heartburn seriously, I don't mind seeing someone else, but if this is no big deal, I'd rather wait. Also, do any of you have home remedies for heartburn?Thanks in advance,Lauren Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
