Acid Reflux / GERD Message Board


Acid Reflux / GERD Board Index


I have no gallbladder so my digestive system is messed up. My PCP is saying I might have Spinctor of the Oddi dysfunction or I may have acid reflux. I have been tested over 9 months ago for an endoscopy and had other tests and all they could find was mild non specific gastritis. I would feel really good for several months and then I might drink decaf coffee for several days and then boom I start belching and I get chest pains of belching stuck in my chest. I leave the decaf coffee alone. So I start prilosec and it goes away. It starts something in my stomach like nausea, belching and pain. I go for another two months feeling good and I start to drink decaf ice tea and lots of it. Boom my stomach starts to feel nausea, acid coming to my throat, going to the bathroom more, and this feeling would come and go throughout the day. As soon as stop the ice tea and take prilosec for two weeks the belching and nausea goes away and I return to normal. I don't take prilosec all year round only when I have flare up like I just described.

I am just wondering if this is really sphinctor of oddi because I eat foods with some fats and don't have flare ups but if I drink something that can cause acid it will give me problems over time. I thought when you have sphinctor of oddi you can't have any fat?? Can acid reflux do this or does it do this??? They seem to mimic each other. I am getting ready to see a specialist but this bugs me I feel like my stomach is a big mystery.

Coffee, caffeinated and decaffeinated are the worst offenders as they are highly acidic. They do provoke reflux. Your stomach/esophagus likely heals with the use of medication and the symptom goes away. You probably start producing too much acid as a consequence of drinking the coffee/tea which then starts the cycle all over again.
