Gluten Problem Or Acid Reflux?
Posted 29 April 2012 - 07:20 AM
Two years ago I started a gluten free diet (or nearly) and that helped with the severe constipation and nausea. Then about a year ago, I started drinking Kroger decaffeinated coffee and that seemed to cause stomach aches. Also, I take a little Ambien at night and I'm wondering if that is causing me to fall asleep with an upset stomach, making the acid reflux worse.
I had a scope test and two swollen nodules and am on a month's worth of Omeprazole before another scope test.
Has anyone else been confused between gluten and acid reflux?
I would be thrilled to know I'm not just plain dumb!

When I used to eat gluten and now if I eat dairy when I bend over acid runs back.
Not good. If I stay away from them I'm fine.

You mentioned coffee sets it off. Do other drinks with caffeine do the same? Caffeine can cause problems for those who have reflux...along with acidic foods, etc.

You could have GERD for sure, but it may be caused by gluten . . . I wish my doctor had thought to find the cause rather then just treat the symptoms.
