Acid Reflux / GERD Message Board

Acid Reflux / GERD Board Index

Hi everyone,

I've read through several posts on here and everyone is very helpful. It's nice to know I'm not alone with all these GERD problems!

One thing I haven't seen too much of is whether exercise is good to treat GERD or not? I used to work out 4-5 times per week... running outside, on my treadmill, plus weight lifting. A couple of months ago I started having dizzy spells/vertigo, went to see an ENT, was diagnosed with BPPV (benign paroxymal positional vertigo). The dizziness has gotten better but I now have horrible acid reflux, to the point where the acid comes up my throat and I gag/dry heave but do not vomit. I've been on Aciphex for a couple of days now and I take Mylanta also. The nausea and sore throat is better but I still have horrible burning. Through all of this I have pretty much quit exercising. I lay around and watch TV, read books, etc. more than anything because of all the nausea.

I want to jump back on my treadmill or at least go outside to walk but I'm scared it will make the GERD worse. The burning is absolutely awful as I'm sure you all know, as well as I have horrible mucus in the back of my throat. No fun!

Also, what do you guys think of drinking hot Ginger or Chamomille Tea (no caffeinated)? I've heard this can be helpful but I tried it this morning with Ginger Tea and my mucus production was worse.

Thanks for any advice you can give. :wave:
