This is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.

Expert:  Dr. David replied 4 months ago.

I am sorry you are having these issues.

I would avoid peppermint type antacids as peppermint can relax your GE sphincter muscle and cause more acid reflux to come up your esophagus.

what is your height and weight?

I am sorry you are having lots of gut discomfort

what do you eat normally? you may have to avoid gluten and milk and eat healthier for your bowels to feel better.

have you tried any pepto bismal or zantac stomach acid reducing pills? these could help your abdominal discomforts.

Expert:  Dr. David replied 4 months ago.

the only way to know if you have heart failure is to see a doctor for more testing.

heart failure would cause swelling in your legs and ankles and fluid back up in your chest which can cause shortness of breath

a heart ultrasound cardiac echocardiogram can see if your heart is beating properly or if fluid is backing up causing heart failure.

you should avoid salt in your diet and extra fluids in your diet if you have a history of heart failure
