Acid reflux

Posted by artist28374 @artist28374, Jul 7, 2011

Anyone out there? I have this bad. But also have been throwing up and diarrhea. Am trying to find out what causes the second situation. Thanks. T in Pinehurst NV

Hi. I am looking for people to talk with not websites. I have read all the mayo clinic stuff plus most research.

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 .

Good luck

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.

Yes, it does wonders for acid reflux, indigestion, ulcers…..anything digestive. It also boosts your immune system and is great for colon health. Be sure you are getting an Aloe Juice that uses whole leaf and removes aloin, that is a laxative that is naturally in an aloe leaf…..
