I joined SP a while ago and have lost about 40# so far, just using the trackers and not posting. But my acid reflux is much much worse now despite losing weight and eating healthier foods. Thought it was the increased fiber but I'm surprised I haven't adjusted to it. Now I'm in so much pain that it's really getting to me and I need to reach out. I took Prilosec for years, which helped some. I've stopped taking it since reading about it possibly contributing to osteoporosis. So these days it's just tums, ranitidine and ginger tea, which just aren't helping much. I've read the lists of foods to avoid--yikes, I've just barely stopped eating all the junk food, it's very hard to imagine eliminating all those other foods! I've read about using apple cider vinegar as a remedy but want more info before trying it.
I hope that I'll meet some folks here who can relate and who have tips for managing the pain. I also hope to learn more about the disease and different ways of treating it.
So hi. Glad to be here...
