I'm self diagnosed (been to so many doctors and same answer I'm fine and it's all in my head). Anyways, bc I have pretty bulky stools filled with undigested food. I've been researching and apparently it's due to either low stomach acid or an enzyme problem. Well, I've been taking 2 enzymes with each meal and it hasn't helped. I still have SO much belching and my stools haven't gotten any better. Well, I took 1 capsule of betaine acid with pepsin with my dinner and I haven't felt any burning. Is it safe to say that I need to up my dose? I do have an appointment with my GI doc on Wednesday but I don't know how seriously my doc will take me since he says he's certain I have IBS with just food intolerances. Well...... why the undigested food then? And the freaking weight loss!!!!! Anyways anyone have good results with betaine? For the first time in my life I suffered from severe GERD with esophageal spasms that felt like I was having a heart attack. And that was when my stools started getting bulky and my anxiety and severe fatigue started. Well... my fatigue is gone along with my anxiety but I still have GERD with shortness of breath with chest pain. So... my digestion is still horrible. So... I'd like to know if you guys have any experience with betaine pills and if they've helped.
