I had acid reflux so bad for over 12 years. My entire GI tract burned from mouth to rectum. Not kidding.
I would "spill acid" back up into my throat which felt closed and burning like mad. I did not want to eat
at one point and even water hurt.
No meds helped.
I can report to you that it is GONE!!!! but it took awhile (maybe 10 months? and I had to be patient)
and now, I am 2.5 years post DX and have no GERD symptoms whatsoever.
(neither does my Mom, who also took meds for GERD for many years and has been gluten-free for 2 years)
Hang in there!

Misdiagnosed for 25+ years; Finally Diagnosed with Celiac 11/01/10. Double DQ2 genes. This thing tried to kill me. I view Celiac as a fire breathing dragon --and I have run my sword right through his throat. I. Win.
reflux wasnt something id complained to the doc about, but it was the only thing that was found at my endoscopy. i decided to go gluten and dairy free rather than take meds for it. i didnt have reflux again from that day on ( except for a strawberry smoothie- me and strawberries dont get on lol)
mine wasnt bad though so probably you,ll have to wait a bit longer to heal- but im sure you will. good luck x
I was diagnosed with acid reflux in my teens and it got to a point were I couldn't eat or drink anything but water without horrible pain!! It had caused sores on my esophagus. I've no reflux on GFD until last night whenI know I got CC.
Vegetarian, Gluten Free diet since 03/2013, sensitivity to raw onions, soy, allergic to Cinnamon
Mostly went for me, but I had to really cut down on sugar including fruit for a few months first.
Looks positive for you, good luck
