Acid Reflux / GERD Message Board

Acid Reflux / GERD Board Index

My stomach seems to feel better after eating meals that would be considered unhealty (higher in fat and calories). Crazy right? Anyone else ever experience anything like this? I started having stomach issues back in August of last year after deciding to start eating better to lose weight. Since that time I've lost 48 lbs because I quit eating fast food, drinking sodas, and eating sweets. Instead I started eating a lot more fruits and veggies. After I changed my diet, I started experiencing stomach issues which have continued. I've recently been diagnosed with a hiatal hernia and acid reflux based on symptoms alone, no tests. Ironically though, I don't seem to have problems when I eat foods that are high in fat and calories. Could anyone think of a reason why this might occur? Also, I had my gallbladder removed, due to a gallstone, in December after having 3 gallbladder attacks in less than a month. Currently I'm experiencing a dull ache at my breastbone, my stomach is tender to the touch, burping, and some occasional tightness in my chest and throat. My doctor prescribed Carafate which I've been taking for almost 2 weeks as well as Prilosec. Still no noticable improvement yet.
