Acid Reflux / GERD Message Board

Acid Reflux / GERD Board Index

I have both GERD and IBS and my IBS *reads* as GERD all the time. I've basically determined that if I feel heartburn and yet have no acid coming up my throat and my voice is working fine (I'm a professional singer and genuine GERD makes my cords swell which I can hear when I'm singing), then it's IBS. My main IBS symptom is heartburn without reflux.

So I take Dexilant 60mg 2X a day like you but I also take Align (an over the counter probiotic) each morning which, after a month of making me feel like CRAP (nausea, etc. - really disgusting), actually helped greatly in reducing the heartburn feelings. Not completely but a HUGE difference. Seriously it took a MONTH before I noticed I was feeling better and then each week I've noticed improvements for the most part.

If you are still getting acid up your throat then this obviously is no help but I thought I'd put my experience out there in case you were similarly built. :-) best of luck.
