Acid Reflux / GERD Board Index

This is all new to me too. My doc says I have acid refluc chest pain, but lots of belching...acid up into my throat and burning...tight sensation n my throat at times.

I too eat a very, very bland diet...I have IBS too, so this helps out at both ends!!! My stomach gurgles too..mainly at night when my tummy is empty...I swear my husband can hear it, it is so loud.

I don't eat fatty, spicy, fast or fried chocolate (uhmmm!! halloween candy) , alcohol and don't smoke. I already take 2 meds for high BP, don't want any other meds in my body...I have anxiety too...makes everything in my life worse..panic is a terrible thing.

So, I decided to try ACV (apple cider vinegar) tastes bad...I take 1 TBL w/honey in a glass of water before each meal..drink a glass behind that to rinse my works for me...much less acid up into the throat at all..stomach feel pretty calm...I did have a sour, queasy stomach throughout the day and it would wake me up at night...I still get that on occasion, but much, much better.

I think mine is from anxiety, Toprol-xl (beta-blocker) and with having lower back problems I took Naproxen (alleve) for one month and then Ibuprofen for another month and was also taking an aspirin a day...I stopped all the anti-inflammatory meds and starting taking a ACV just about 2 1/2 weeks ago...have felt much better.

My doc said come back in 2 months if not gone or much better...I don't know how long it takes to damage the esophagus or throat.
