Does Gerd Get Any Better?
0

16 posts in this topic

I had GERD symptoms (heart burn, sore throat) everyday before being diagnosed with Celiac's disease.

I have been gluten-free for just over a month and now only get it after sports. For example, if I play basketball I have Heart burn and a sore throat for 1-2 days after.

Is this common and If so, did your GERD get better with time?

12+ years of "GERD", and a lifetime of "IBS", "colitits", "gastroenteritis" and a crazy burning GI tract from my mouth to you know where....all gone!

 

Give it time, hon. Hang in there!

Yep, mine is far more manageable now. Instead of day to day, maybe once a week or so? If that.

Definitely but you may still have to manage it a little. Don't eat too much at one time, watch the fatty food and the spicey food....or too much acidic food (coffee, etc.). These days for me too much coffee on an empty stomach or a bad mixture like wine & nachos will give me reflux ! Dairy can get me too, everyone is different. Adding intense exercise on to an already grumpy stomach just makes it worse !

Yes, it does. For me, symptoms fell off (and appeared) in phases. Healing happened the same way. One day, it's just gone...

Well, thank you for the replies; it all sounds very positive! I guess I will have to be a bit more careful about what I eat and exercise some good old fashion patience. Hopefully I don't have to give up my coffee, but I may have to skip it when it plays up.

I noticed I had to skip crunches or anything that put upward pressure on my esophagus during a GERD episode (week or so). If you do anything like that, perhaps skip that for a week and see what happens?

thanks for starting this thread!  I'm a little over a month gluten-free as well, and I've noticed my GERD getting better.  I've recently tried a little more strenuous exercising after a long hiatus from it.  I stopped because exercise no longer made me energetic, but actually made me more tired and sore, but not a good post-workout sore  :(   I'm happy to say that I'm now slowly getting back to that good post-workout sore, but I have noticed the GERD seems to act up after my workout is over.  I'm hoping in time my body adjusts just like the other posters  :rolleyes:

It's good I know this is pretty common. Since we have been gluten-free for relatively the same amount of time, how bout we do an update post in a month or 2. I'd be keen to see how we progress.

Mine did get better going gluten-free (took about 4 months to be completely resolved). Now, that's one of the ways I know if I've been CC'd or accidentally glutened (along with some other not so nice GI sx), it comes back.

It took 3 years for my GERD to go away completely. I had to avoid all acidic foods during that time as they would set it off. I still get it sometimes when i get gutened. But mostly I can eat what I want that is acidic, though if I get glutened best to stay away from the acidic stuff. So it can take a lot of time, but worth it to feel better.

Oh yeah.... dittos on most of these posts! GERD, IBS, colitis, diagnosis, just like Irish Heart (HI Irish... long time no see! ) ... and for me, going gluten free, and dairy free (dairy probably had a bigger impact on stopping GERD) along with eliminating coffee, citrus (orange juice, lemonade, etc) and also eliminating pork, which I was surprised to learn that I'm allergic to... all of those things made a HUGE difference. In fact I would say .... if I have GERD symptoms once or twice a year, that would surprise me. Its essentially a thing of the past for me, but I am VERY vigilant about eating only things I have tested and I know don't make me sick in any form. My blood tests were all out of whack when I was diagnosed... including having high levels of eosinophils (eosinophilic esophagitis) which they found correlated to Celiac Disease in I believe it was a study in Netherlands. It was something close to 50% of 405 kids tested had BOTH!  Anyway... like I said, almost all my blood tests were out of whack when I was diagnosed, and six months later.... ALL NORMAL!!!!!!!! .... ANd STILL normal! Keep in mind... I was SO SICK of being sick that I literally did not put ANYTHING in my mouth that I knew would make me sick. If I did get sick a reviewed what I ate, until I could eliminate the problematic food. A lot of people don't think they need to do this, and suffer instead. I wasn't willing to suffer anymore once I learned that food could make me so sick (ei: gluten). For me that opened up the though process of... okay if gluten can make me so sick...what if something else is also making me sick.  In my case, it turned out to be true on many fronts. Along with gluten and dairy intolerances, I have multiple food allergies, ranging from apples, peaches, cherries, melons, celery, carrots, shellfish, and pork...to name a few. I also found out that High Fructose Corn Syrup is the devil!  That makes me sick too... and I avoid it at all costs, along with food dyes, preservatives, and any "itol" fake foods, like sorbitol (doctors orders). Anyway, long story short, YES you will get better, but there is no magic bullet. It takes time and persistence, to figure out what your body is reacting to. Once you figure that out, you will no longer have GERD. :) I'm living proof of that.  Best wishes to you!

Ms.Curious! Hey there! so good to "see" you again. I have often wondered how you are doing! Glad to hear you're doing so well! :)

I love healing stories!!!

 

Sabin,

Her post just reminded me that my also G F Mom, who was on 2 different GERD meds dumped her big glass of milk that she had every single night of her life with dinner (I know, what 85 year old still drinks a big honking glass of milk, right? She just really liked it and her bones are stronger than mine) :D

 

She finally listened to her daughter and went without it --just to try it--and within 2 weeks, she stopped the GERD, chest pain  and constant burping she had (every single night of her life.)  1 +1 =2  No need for drugs.

I looked like a genius! LOL

 

She (and I) both drink So Delicious Coconut milk instead. Twice the calcium and well, it's so delicious. 

 

We can both eat ice cream and all other dairy products now--without a single problem.

It's worth a try to temporarily avoid it.

Same here! It's the first sign of an accidental glutening for me!

 

Also, wine before bed... not so good.

    • Oat Flour making me sick?
      I wouldn't be afraid to use a stainless steel pot that other things had been cooked in AS LONG AS YOU WASH THEM VERY WELL before making her food.
    • to biopsy or not?
      You are MOST welcome! No problem with making these recipes. If you just follow the directions they lay out, you will be absolutely fine! BTW, I chose to make everything using the flour blend they give you the recipe for. It really is better than the pre-made flours you can buy. To make things easier, I make a double batch of the flour blend and put it in a BIG tupperware (plastic) container & keep in the fridge. That way when I go to make anything I just scoop out the amount I need. Secondly, get yourself a cheap little kitchen scale. I got this one & it works great. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007TCFE0I?psc=1 Mine doesn't have the removable glass or the kitchen timer but otherwise is just like this one. This one is more like the one I got http://www.amazon.com/Ozeri-Digital-Kitchen-Capacity-Elegant/dp/B002IR6OP8 Weighing out your ingredients makes a huge difference & really it's so much easier than measuring everything in measuring cups. As far as the coffee cake recipe..... I changed it a little bit so it would be like a gluten coffee cake I used to make & we loved. It turns out a little more healthy as well with dried fruit I put in it. I didn't make the topping that they do. These are the changes I made. In the batter, instead of the 1 Tblsp. of cinnamon I used 1 teaspoon. In the batter, I added dried apricots & raisins --- I do it by feel so I will say about 1/2 cup of each maybe a tad more.  My Topping: Then in a separate bowl I put about 1.5 teaspoons of cinnamon, about 3/4 cup of dark brown sugar, and some melted butter. Mix the dry ingredients & pour the butter in mixing the mixture with your fingers. You want the mixture crumbly yet moist. Put the batter in the oven for 5 min. & then take out & crumble the topping on top, then it all goes back in the oven & bake according to directions in the recipe. You could add nuts, dried dates, any dried fruits or nuts you like!   Finally, you owe it to yourself to get some really good pans. This for loaves of bread as gluten free bread requires the extra height & support these pans give. You won't have to use parchment paper or make the tin foil collar which is a pita. http://www.kingarthurflour.com/shop/items/bread-loaf-pan-9-x-4-x-4 These are great for making the dinner roll recipe into burger buns: http://www.kingarthurflour.com/shop/items/individual-pie-and-burger-bun-pan
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      Actually, there is a place I could complain to about how my request to amend my record was handled. zthey really messed up onthis one. I think this doctor was too careless to set a HIPPA policy in place or doesn't pay attention to generic forms included to fill out with new patient forms. I'm debating whether or not to file a complaint. If the doctor adds derogatory remarks to my report, I will definitely file a complaint. I really should file a complaint for all the patients who are mistreated, but I don't need more stress in my life. I have found doctors like her create stress or sometimes it's best to say goodbye without further contact. Can I Appeal if a Covered Entity Refuses to Make an Amendment? Maybe. An institution must accept complaints about its health privacy policies and practices. Filing a complaint with an institution may not be the equivalent of filing an appeal of a denial of a request for amendment, but it may help if it forces someone new at the covered entity to review your request. However, some institutions may accept formal appeals. Consult the institution’s notice of privacy practices to see if there is an appeal method for a denial of a request for amendment. Talk to the privacy officer at the covered entity to see if you can obtain help. You can also complain to the Secretary of the federal Department of Health and Human Services about how your request was handled. The Department’s Office of Civil Rights processes complaints. You can find information about the process at http://www.hhs.gov/ocr/privacy/hipaa/complaints/index.html. You have another alternative. When a covered entity denies your request for amendment, it must tell you that you can request the covered entity to provide a copy of your request for amendment with any subsequent disclosure of the disputed information. In some instances, it may be important to make the request. Remember that the covered entity is not required to tell others about the dispute unless you ask.    
    • Johnny Carinos
      According to Johnny Carino's' gluten free menu, the potato soup is safe to eat. However, their allergen guide says the soup has wheat. Anybody know which is right? I contacted my local restaurant and sent an email to the email address listed on their website. However, my local place did not know, and no one has responded to my emails yet. I would love to try this restaurant, but now I am worried if it is safe.  allergen guide http://pmgdata.s3.amazonaws.com/menu/75327/pdf/allergy_info_guide_7-21-13_8731.pdf   gluten free menu http://glutenfreeguidehq.com/johnny-carinos-gluten-free-menu/

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
