Reflux
0

12 posts in this topic

Hi everyone - has anyone experienced terrible reflux that went away once you went gluten-free?  And if so - how long did it take to go away?

I have had absolutely awful reflux for a long time and after going gluten-free, it has decreased A LOT.  Gets very bad when I am accidentally glutened but it just hasn't gone away completely yet. 

Just looking to see if this tends to be common with celiacs and/or NCGI patients.  I see my doctor next week but looking for some help.

Thank you!!

 

Sarah

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!

hi there,

 

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 GERD, but I didn't that my reflux was THAT bad... I found the gluten free diet helps my reflux though! But still have to avoid chocolate :/

Mine went away completely unless I eat gluten. It's one thing I have been very grateful for as this was a major issue I have had for many years.

I'm with Tanya.  I think I've only had this symptom on one or two occasions since going gluten-free.

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
