After a meal if i bend down or burp, etc. i will feel food coming back up my throat and sometimes wind up with throw up in my mouth. Or it just feels like it is sitting in my esophagus. But i have never ever felt a burn – like acid or bile is in the my throat, chest, etc. totally pain free. Can people have reflux/GERD with out it burning in their chest and throat?
So annoying that the doctor did nothing to find out what was wrong, just assumed I was the same as everyone else (who really aren’t the same) and put me on the dangerous “miracle pill” of omeprazole. Thank you for your help and for educating us on the truth. I expect that within the next week I will be balanced out and will no longer have to be scared of chocolate…though I will avoid being overindulgent of things that are not good for me. This sounds SO much like me.
Doctor mentioned doing a gastric emptying study to see if I have gastroparesis, but I have a very large deductible and that is expensive. I wonder if HCL tablets would help, but I am worried that it would make my inflamed esophagus worse in case I don’t have low stomach acid. I don’t know what to do anymore. I am starting to think I may have low stomach acid as antacids seem to make it worse.
Think You Have Low Stomach Acid? Here’s What to To
Leads me to believe that low acid is more likely to be causing the bloat than too much acid. I also think some research could be done into all the above and the occurence of pylori bacteria in the gut. Theresa, you should try going gluten free. Many people who think they have late onset lactose intolerance really have gluten intolerance that has disrupted their digestive system so much, they can no longer tolerate dairy.
The problem might be called hypochlorhydria – or low stomach acid. While your stomach is an organ that can withstand harsh treatment, you’re sure to notice as soon as it stops working. This article will go through the details of how to discover whether you have adequate stomach acid levels, and what you need to do to restore them if you don’t.
Best taken just before or directly after eating, the enzymes help to break down different food types and the betaine HCl. I was treated to a homemade chocolate experience that included a flight of chocolate, sipping chocolate and truffles that woke me up with a massive acid reflux attach and left me burping for 2 months.
I really don’t know what to do because the hospital in my town is horrible & last time i went there the doctor had no compassion & told me that this just happens & i will have to deal with it for the rest of my life. I asked her why my stomach would decide to produce too much acid now & she didn’t answer. I told her it happens all the time no matter what i eat or what im doing & she picked up on that & scheduled a stress test for me to see if i have the spasms when i run, but i told her no because it will happen out of nowhere so I’m not sure if i should even go.
I often get reflux after I eat. I also feel bloated and get a lot of gas. In general, I just don’t feel good after eating a meal. I’m tired of being another statistic and I’m determined to get my life back. I’ve been doing a lot of research about acid reflux and I’m reading more and more that it’s not having enough acid.
A lack of this mineral can contribute to hypochlorhydria. While everyday stress may not have much effect on the production of stomach acid, chronic stress can contribute to hypochlorhydria. This is where something known as the buffer capacity of the stomach steps in.
Problem now is, she’s passing really small stools, and they’re more difficult to pass. Wondering if low stomach acid could be the root of all these issues. Forgot to mention doc also thinks she might have gastroparesis. Stomach acid supports the digestion of meats (mainly protein) in the stomach. The milk issue likely had more to do with the inability to digest the milk sugar called lactose.
