Acid Reflux and its Symptoms

Posted by mwarenski @mwarenski, Feb 13, 2017

Does anyone have a variety of symptoms associated with Acid Reflux that are chronic? Such as chest pain, back pain, weird tastes, etc.? Please tell me your symptoms. A little worried here…thinking it may be something more serious.

I had severe acid reflux for years and was on PPI's for 20 years. There is a lot of evidence now how bad these drugs are for us! I have posted how I got rid of mine. I had Lynx surgery but still had to take PPI's twice a day. Until I read about fructose malabsorption and stopped eating all fruit, some vegetables and all sugars of every kind, did I finally get off meds for good. I wouldn't have needed the surgery had I known this before the surgery. I have posted in this thread about the diet. Yes it's easier to take a pill or have surgery then cut out foods we love but when your start to feel better and find other foods that work it's worth it!

I read different online sites by googling enzymes/FODMAP and found information on replacement enzymes. One was Monash University's – FODMAP site and also a few other sites for recommendations. After reading different recommendations that were out there, I went on Amazon's site to look at the cost for these enzymes. Then I read the reviews, both positive and negative reviews. The enzymes that were recommended were very costly but in some of the reviews there were recommendations for other enzymes. One of the products was the one I selected, 'NOW Super Enzymes'. I read what enzymes were in this product and compared them to the more expensive brands. I decided that I would try one bottle for about $10, (90 tablets) – in case I want to cut them in 1/2). If they didn't work, I was willing to try the more expensive ones. I can't believe the difference they have made for me. I just hope that I do not become allergic to any of the ingredients in this product.
I wish you luck and hope that you will also find success in your quest for a solution!

Hopefully this medication will work for you. It made my symptoms worse! I had to get off of it as well as omeprazole and Pepcid. Once I stop the PPI’s Believe it or not my stomach got better no heartburn no lump in my throat. I get mild heartburn now but that’s due to my Gastro paresis and I manage it with gaviscon

If you're on PPI's for more than the recommended 14 days will have rebound when trying to get off!!

That’s interesting

They are not easy coming off of them and after reading reports of how bad they are for you, I tried to come off of them. The first time I came off of them I had to open the capsule and pour off 1/2 of the beads, then slowly but surely I cut back, and back by 1/2 until I was finally off of them. After being off of them for about 1 year, I had to go back on them, but after about 2-3 days on them I had a terrible reaction to them and fortunately was able to stop cold turkey at that point. They never worked for me and I will never go back on them.
