Possible triggers include eating large and late meals, caffeine, alcohol, fatty meals, NSAIDs [non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen] and other medications.” Exercise, relaxation techniques, psychological therapies and acupuncture may help, but evidence is hard to come by because it hasn’t been a research priority, says Ford. Special diets, such as ones low in short-chain carbohydrate Fodmaps (fermentable, oligo-, di-, mono-saccharides and polyols) that can help people with irritable bowel syndrome, need further research to see whether they will help those with dyspepsia.
Indigestion (confusingly called “heartburn”) typically starts in the upper abdomen and moves up behind your breastbone. It gets worse when you lie down or bend over because that causes stomach acid to reflux up into the oesophagus. You get a sour taste in your mouth if the acid reaches that far.
I’ve been wondering for awhile if I have acid reflux. whenever I ate greasy foods I would have bad gas to the point my stomach hurts and constant burping and nausea. I had gone to the doctor recently for my stomach issue and prescribed to me omeprazole 20mg for acid reflux.
Previously I was having a terrible time with bowel movement being loose, thin or wet with undigested food. I gained about 60lbs over two years and had no energy, brain fog, arthritic like pain especially in me feet and knees. I was depressed, not sleeping well and tired all the time. I was taking Aleve and Zantac for pain and acid reflux.
Should You Try Gut-Directed Hypnotherapy for IBS?
Problem is that my number one symptom prior to dietary changes was heartburn so it’s confusing what is causing what. Doctor wanted to put me on PPIs (I think they treat everyone with PPIs), but I asked if I can try lifestyle changes and things like apple cider vinegar. I started using a wedge pillow, don’t eat 3 hours before sleep, smaller meals, etc., but still I am bloated like never before. When I have dinner at 7pm I still feel full when I wake up the next morning.
I’ve been doing reasearch and started taking this supplement. I assume I have low stomach acid (leaky gut, food sensitivities, gas, bloating, years of antibiotic usage up until my 30s, 10+ years on the pill, etc). I’ve talked about GERD / heartburn before but I want to give you a quick summary.
The bloating sensation, nausea and headache started almost instantly and lasted throughout the night and have not subsided even in the morning. I woke up wanting to throw up but simply couldn’t so now I can’t go to work and sitting at home feeling miserable. Summary People who experience bloating often have increased sensitivity to food in the stomach.
It’s genetic, and may be the cause of my Restless Legs Syndrome, Peripheral Neuropathy, and my son’s high fat buildup around his cardiac arteries and his liver problems. Theres so many different opinions about what could cure acid reflux – my doctor only seams to know surgery or PPI’s, apple cider vinegar seams to be another popular aid, so it is difficult to really decide what to do.
My daughter was recently diagnosed with gastroparesis. I’m not convinced that’s the true culprit of her symptoms. I have been to two doctors that won’t give my thoughts of low stomach acid any validity. I was told by
Or it just feels like it is sitting in my esophagus. But i have never ever felt a burn – like acid or bile is in the my throat, chest, etc. totally pain free. Can people have reflux/GERD with out it burning in their chest and throat? I am very careful to not over eat as well. I notice it is not anywhere near as bad if i am eating a no grain meal, versus a meal with starch/grains.
