Please Help Me Kill My Acid Reflux

Recommended Posts

I'm not sure what you mean about soya? I don't eat it in any form, whether oil or lecithin or flour or TVP or whatever, and I don't eat anything that was made on shared lines or equipment or "may contain traces of" soya.

also, getting the hernia fixed is not an option until at least september 2012, barring emergency. besides, that is a MAJOR surgery that I don't want to go thru if I don't have to.

You mentioned that you ate ice cream about a month ago. Which brand / flavor was it?

In your signature you mention that you are attempting to avoid MSG. If you were completely soy-free, MSG consumption would not be an option.

Huh? MSG is usually manufactured with bacterial fermentation. Hydrolyzed soy protein always contains MSG but nothing I've ever read suggests that MSG always contains soy.

Protein-rich foods take a fair amount of stomach acid and enzymes to digest properly. Getting your acid checked sounds sensible.

Water was the absolute worst thing for my GERD, it got to the point where I had to swallow and re-swallow again and again just to get one mouthful down. Also having a tablespoon of vinegar when you have an attack. Not sure how effective it is but my DH swears by it and I have heard others say it works as well. Not malt obviously.

Yeah - sounds like you are malabsorpting something alright. Good luck with finding out what it is!

I checked the ice cream for soy ingredients, but as it had dairy that gave me symptoms, I don't see how that's an issue since I don't eat dairy anymore.

also, my diet is 100% MSG free right now just because of happenstance. I think the only msg I ever really got was at gluten-free restaurants or possibly in broths or something. I should change my signature maybe.

I did not state that MSG always contains soy. However, MSG could possibly be a source of soy. As a celiac, you know well enough that "usually manufactured" just isn't good enough.

Were mono / diglycerides in the ingredient list of your ice cream?

Are you sure what you are experiencing is acid reflux? I ask because that's what my doctor's keep telling me is my problem, but I'm beginning to believe it isn't. I have chronic urticaria (mostly just itchy skin), but I think I also experience it in my tongue/throat, and I believe it is irritated and flares every time I eat or drink anything. My tongue feels thick and I have stomach and chest pain. My esophagus also feels like there is a lump or squeezing in it. I'm still working on figuring it all out. The acid blockers either don't do anything or cause gas and more stomach pain. The reason I'm thinking you might have something similar is because you said you experience symptoms whenever you eat or drink. I don't really know. I'm just throwing out another idea for you to consider.

Have you ever had your gallbladder looked at? You can have a dysfunctioning gallbladder without having gall stones.

When I was malabsorbing terrible I started on creon. It is available by prescription. It is a pancreatic enzyme, but more potent that what you get over the counter. I took it for three months. Now I only take it if I get glutened somehow. It helps with the malabsorption I get that occurs with the glutening.
