Acid Reflux / GERD Message Board


Acid Reflux / GERD Board Index


Hi,

About 2 months ago my sister convinced me to start taking apple cider vinegar because its so good for you and clears you skin and etc etc....
Anyway, I took it but I took far too much over a 3 day period for my delicate little system. It should be said that prior to this I have never had any problems with reflux or heartburn or acidity in the stomach. On the third day, my stomach became bloated, like I'd just had a thanksgiving dinner. And every day since then it has been constanly bloated. I wake up in the morning and I look like Demi Moore on the cover of Vanity Fair holding her pregnant belly - and Im a male, with a usually flat stomach. I saw my doctor and was tested for h. pylori (negative) and then had a stomach x ray done, where they make you drink this white liquid and then take all these shots of your tummy in various positions. The test came back stating that I had an normal esophagus and stomach but "swelling of the folds in the duodenal cap of mild degree, consistent with mild duodentitis". My doctor told me to take pantoloc once a day in the morning and that eventually, meaning anywhere between 3 weeks and 3 months, the bloating would go away.
Now, since most of the people here are pretty well versed in this area, I just wanted to run this by you and see if it made sense to you. Because I have been taking pantoloc for one month now and have not seen the slightest change at all in my stomach, it is still just constantly bloated (I think distended or inflamed is a better word). I don't have any other symptoms other than some very mild pain to the right of left of my belly button every once in a rare while. I'd like to believe that if I continue to just faithfully take these pantoloc pills this will go away but my body doesn't seem to be telling me that. It feels like there is something going on in there that needs more than pantoloc. I also eat well, avoid acidic foods etc....
Anyone have any advice or smililar situations? I would really appreciate whatevever you have to offer!
Best to all of you!

Alex
