Hi. I am looking for people to talk with not websites. I have read all the mayo clinic stuff plus most research.
Acid reflux and asthma
I have had severe acid reflux for years. I take Nexium, and with a few exceptions avoid all citrus foods, coffee, spicy and fried foods. Cheat and eat chocolate maybe twice a week. Do not drink liquor, an occasional champagne. Never smoked.
Have had ulcers and an esophagus motility problem . Now also taking Sucralfate tablets that I mix with water. Less expensive than liquid form to coat my stomach one-half hour before taking Nexium before meals.
I am experiencing very loose bowel movements very shortly after eating.
I eat Greek Yogurt, drink Dan Active, and today started taking ALIGN,
a pro-biotic. Hope this helps curtail bowel movements. I can only take Tylenol for any kind of pain or I develop Ulcers .

I would try a natural aloe juice…..
I had all the similiar problems for over a year. It came down to 2 things: I had a non functioning gall bladder that was found on a hydascan then surgery to remove it, also a gluten intolerance. After changing my diet and surgery I am 90% better. I am using digestive supplements to manage not having a gall bladder and that is still a work in progress. The reflux meds did not work for me.
Have you ever been screened for Celiac disease.? Your symptoms are common celiac symptoms . Your family Dr or a GI Dr could order the celiac panel blood tests.
They tell me that reflux is one of my causes for pneumonia and ashma
I never thought of that. Does it work for you?
