GERD Strikes Again

Tuesday, February 21, 2012

If there was any doubt that my medication had been helping with my reflux, that doubt has been completely blown away. I forgot to take my pill for the first time last night and was hit with a huge wave of reflux. I'm still feeling the effects of it today and have only been able to eat a container of yogurt. I just hope my body doesn't go into starvation mode so soon. I had been doing so well. emoticon

    What med are you on? I sometimes can go for a good while without taking mine, then something that I least expect to....
    will throw me off again.

    Yesterday after dinner I 2 little one inch cubes of fresh pineapple and that threw my tum into spazzes.........

    I can so sympathize with you.....one thought, I try to eat
    somewhat non-acidic(no tomatoes-etc) foods for dinner, if I
    am dead set on having a couple Enchiladas, I have them for lunch.
    This seems to help.

    One other thing.....my husband read somewhere,,,,,that if your
    reflux is acting up, eat like a 1/4 of an apple. I have tried
    this twice, and it did work without the Nexium or Zantac....
    Don't know if it works for everyone, but eating 1/4 of an apple
    is better for you than meds............

    If you try it, and it works, would you let me know??? He keeps
    apples on hand all the time now just in case.....for me.....I
    just didn't think about it because we had a different problem
    to deal with last night...
