Acid Reflux / GERD Message Board


Acid Reflux / GERD Board Index


Age: 25, Male, Normal weight.

I was cooking my meal, and accidentally added a lot of green mango chutney to it. It became a little too sour, but as I was getting late, ate the food anyway.

The next morning, I felt a burning feeling in throat while swallowing. Also there was the feeling that something was stuck in my esophagus. In the evening that day, I experienced my first heartburn in life. Have high acidity many times before but never something like acid reflux. Bought an Al-Mg liquid antacid to help me sleep.

I have been drinking ginger boiled in water before my first meal... and it works wonderfully. But by the evening (or after second meal), acid reflux returns. It is not severe like the first day, but it is still distracting and stressful. [B]This has been going on for 6 days.[/B] I have taken antacid 5-6 times only in the entire period ( trying to avoid it as much as possible.) Also chewing gum sometimes after meals.

What could be the possible reason? Could it be that my LES got damaged? or GERD or Hernia?

There are no Gastroenterologist in my area (small and remote town) and have to go nearly 200km to meet one. Can really use some help and encouragement. Feeling depressed and stressed. Thanks a ton.

You probably upset your stomach and that is why you are feeling this way. try to let your stomach heal for a bit. I don't know what kind of stuff you have there in India, but try an over the counter med like gaviscon or pepcid and see how you feel. If you do not get better in 1 week or more then try to see a doctor. Healing the stomach is what I would do.

Best of luck!
