I have osteoporosis but I still take medication for reflux, twice a day every day. I have used apple cider vinegar and it did help a lot. You need to talk to your doctor about medication. Good Luck!

I take Omeprazole twice daily, and soon know it if I haven't taken it, even tho' I mostly don't eat the trigger foods.

I suggest that you make an appointment to talk with your Dr and see what is going on. It would be beneficial for you to have a scope to see what is happening down there. Sometimes there are some very serious conditions which cause this, and you really don't want to leave them untreated if that is what you are looking at!

Apart from that, I often find eating a little bit yoghurt helps a lot. It has a soothing effect, but for me, the ones with passion-fruit or Apricot can aggravate it.

Good luck in finding a good resolution to this.

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...
