JnkMnky,
I have the burning in my throat when I get heartburn. I don't have the actual food coming back up in my mouth or anything. I went off prilosec for a month without a problem. Then got careless about caffeine, mainly had coffee two days in a row and I was miserable. So this is my worst trigger. I am on prilosec again for three days, but gave up the coffee again and so I am hoping to go off the prilosec tomorrow again. I just need to follow the diet that is best for me.
Hope you get some relief. I can feel your pain. It is a miserable thing to have.
Monica


My problem is that I've been on the prilosec for so long( 2 1/2 months ), that a rebound effect is very likely. I tried to go off it while my husband was home and WHOA! I couldn't take the pain. I took a pill by 1pm on the second day. Plus, I burped constantly. I opened my mouth to talk and burps came out. It wasn't a small deal. It was like constant. So, I am off coffee, past the headache stage, and ready to go tomorrow for the big quit. I'm really nervous about how bad it will be because I was hunched over, gripping my chest after only one day off the prilosec! :unsure: I relate to that "heart attack" feeling.

Can you take Tums? Do they contain gluten? Or Mylanta?

Maybe the baby reflux diet (half as much twice as often) might help?

And stay away from citrus , tomato sauce, and other acidic or spicy foods for a while! I wonder if rice can help with the acid?

Good luck--let us know how it's going!

Thanks fiddle... the GI told me to get a few bottles of mylanta and prepare for the worst. Tums doesn't help me much at all. He said to expect it to be pretty bad for at least the couple first days... by the FIFTH :o day to expect it to be better IF it's going to get better!!! double yikes! :o :o

Jnkmnky,
I don't know why, but Tums and Rolaids makes mine worse, I believe. I don't understand it at all. I think I do need to stay away from high fat, dairy and mainly coffee and diet soda. I don't know why Mt. Dew doesn't bother me. So strange. I don't like all the sugar in them though, so I really just need to give all my addictions up. I was on Prilosec for a month and tried to go off of it once or twice in there, but couldn't. THen I quit it after a month and I wasn't drinking coffee and I was fine for like three weeks. Drank coffee two days and it was back again. Very annoying. I don't have it as bad as you do I guess. I have been on Prilosec for four days again, but I am planning on going off now that I quit coffee.
I really believe though that not eating the foods that give us troubles can help it, if not cure it. Just being committed to it is hard for me. There are already so many things I can't have.

Well, I'm commited to going coffee free. I did it once for like three years, so I know I can do it. I AM doing it right now... just that I really like the stuff. Well, it's no longer a choice when the consequence is inability to function, I guess. Being gluten free, mostly dairy free, coffee and soda free... well, it's all for the best. The burps have already started. Everytime I MOVE.. seriously. :( At least it hasn't started hurting! :)

Could exercise help? Maybe it would help foods--and acid-- move faster through the system?
