... is causing me to taste stomach acid in my mouth?

 

Does anyone have any idea on how i can get it to stop? I can go brush my teeth and it'll last about an hour or so then its back.

 

I should also add that its making my stomach upset as well.

I take 30 mg of prevacid everyday (per doctor)

Use an enzyme/probiotic after eating.

Avoid acid causing foods - eat more stuff on the alkaline scale.

Don't lay down for three hours after eating

Raise the head of your bed 6 to 8 inches or sleep in a recliner. 

 

It's still a battle, but these things help.

 

Take care, my friend.

That is why I was so sick with every pregnancy.  I understand now.  Do you have low gastric acid?

Can they test for low gastric acid?

I read an awesome book called Why Stomach Acid is Good for You and highly recommend it!!  There is a test called a Heidelberg Capsule Test that can measure stomach acid.  More often than not acid reflux is caused by low stomach acid rather than too much stomach acid.  There's an interesting study discussed in the book relating low stomach acid to increased prevailance for asthma.  Here's a link to the book if you're interested http://www.amazon.com/Why-Stomach-Acid-Good-You/dp/0871319314/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1375325213&sr=8-1&keywords=why+stomach+acid+is+good+for+you

 

Totally worth the read!

It depends on what you are eating.  I had to stop eating apples because they were causing me problems.  I would be careful about taking medicine because there was just a news report about a husband who received medicine for acid reflux and he thought he was good to go until he ended up with esophageal cancer after taking the medicine for a few years.  I think medicine is just like a band aid, as are all other medicines.  You probably should select a handful of foods to eat everyday and then introduce a new food item until you can see what triggers your acid reflux.  There is a pill out there for everything, but I think it all has to do with what we put in our body.  People just think it's easier to pop a pill which can cause other medical problems instead of taking the time to figure out what's causing their problem.  Good luck!

I have had no problems since going gluten-free, and giving up sugar for a few months. I can now eat fruit but not processed sugars.

I hope you get some relief, I had it years and remember how horrible it is.

    • First, do you have celiac disease?  I assume you do.  Have you recently had a celiac antibodies follow-up blood test panel to see if gluten has been actually getting into your diet by accident or through cross contamination?  If you haven't had the test, you should ask your doctor for one.  You could also also ask for a follow-up endoscopy to see if you intestines have truly healed.  This will rule out if gluten is really the problem.    If gluten is not the problem, then your doctor needs to check you for other issues, like SIBO. There is a test to check for SIBO.  Has this been done?   Once a celiac, always a celiac.  There is no cure for celiac disease except to remain on a gluten free diet for life.    
    • I am so confused right now.... 6 years ago I went on gluten free diet... after being on it for the first yr I was 100%better up until 5 months ago in got the "flu" the doctors told me to cut out dairy sonic did and my diarrhea  became better but not completely gone would not have it every day tho. I went to the gi doctor and they said to cut out fructose and dairy and keep gluten out... yesterday I went to the dietitian to see what I can eat and she gave me the list for fructose... she said it should have been on a antibiotic for sibo.... eventually I will be able to add dairy back and maybe gluten.... I said how can I add gluten back when this was my first problem... she goes well through fructose goes hand in hand with it... I said with gluten I vomit and am sick for weeks.... fructose isn't that bad I vomit sometimes but I'm not sick for weeks.... I'm just confused on really what is going on and was wondering if you or someone you know had sibo from gluten and or fructose and how Is this all related?
    • I see no one has responded to your query.  Unfortunately I have yet to try making a pie crust.  It was something I never mastered before going gluten free.  Have you looked on Pinterest?  You might find something there.
    • I honestly feel like both doctors think it's all in my head even though there is proof.  Yeah there was a point when I felt crazy.  That was when I was being shuffled from dr to dr being given individual diagnoses of my problems.  None of those diagnoses ever made me get better.  Seriously I was diagnosed with heart palpitations, neurocardiogenic syncope, I was given a butt load of steroids because a dr felt like I was producing too much adrenaline, freaking had a few tell me I was depressed, and the good ol IBS.  It seemed most wanted to push pills.  It's all just ridiculous!
    • I can't believe your doctors!!! You have a daughter who is dx'd already! Yet the ped doesn't want to test your other kids unless you have a dx????!!! Are you kidding me???!!! That's absurd!!! They have a first degree relative who has been dx'd with celiac already. There is no need to wait to see what you turn out to be!! And then, and then, and then....don't even get me started on your doctor!!! Does he have brain damage? Oh this is insane & ridiculous!  I have never heard of a disease that doctors are so unwilling to consider or test for OR to diagnose as this one! Usually they are hot to trot to make a dx but say the word celiac & they shake in their boots. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
