Heartburn Every Morning

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I have been gluten free for over a week now. I am feeling better. Surprisingly I have noticed my mood is better! Anyway, I went gluten free in an attempt to stop GERD and further damage to my esophagus (I have barrett's). I have heartburn EVERY morning. Never during the day, on when I awake in the morning do I have terrible burning in my esophagus. It has become increasingly worse over the years... I have to get this under control before it does serious damage. I am continuing to go gluten free, however, I am not sure that going gluten free is the answer to this problem.

Has anyone had heartburn every morning? I have tried everything tip in the book (don't eat too late, lift up bed, change diet etc...) nothing works.... Any other ideas?

GERD or reflux is caused by inappropriate opening of the lower esophageal sphincter, rather than too much stomach acid. Food allergies, gluten intolerance and other causes of malabsorption in the intestines can slow the digestive process and influence reflux. However, certain foods, beverages and drugs can also relax the LES. Those substances include:

alcohol

caffeine

chocolate

mints, esp. peppermint

sugar

onions

fats

nictotine

NSAIDS

bronchodilators

beta-blockers

diazepam

nitrares

demerol

Other foods and drugs can irritate an already inflamed (by GERD) esophagus. Those include:

citurs fruits and juice

tomato based foods

spicy foods

coffee

carbonated drinks

aspirin

NSAIDS

tetracycline

Quinidine

potassium chloride tablets

iron salts

If you only get symptoms when you wake up, consider what you eat/drink/take the night before. However, I've found that reflux can be a delayed reaction to what I ate the previous day. Consider cutting out any of those LES relaxer substances.

My husband went through a bad heartburn stage where he woke up with it every morning. He doesn't have any gluten issues at all, but tomatoes and large amounts of dairy trigger it for him, as well as peppermint tea, due to its relaxing effect on the stomach muscles.

I know you mentioned sleeping in an elevated bed, but we found laying on your left side vs. your right can also be helpful. You may have already tried all this, but in case you haven't...

Hello all,

Thank you for your replies. Unfortunatly I have tried all of the above and none have worked. The doctor kind of blows it off and says to keep taking prilosec and eat some food when I get up (which does help it to go away quickly) however, I can't stop thinking about the damage that is being done while I am asleep.... I have an appointment at the end of the month to see what can be done, but I would rather do as natural as I can, as drugs and proceedures usually have side effects/consequinces....

Do you smoke or use tabacco in any form? Drink alcohol? Have you been able to link this to foods or spice like tomatoes, green peppers, lemonade, oregano? Do you try not to eat anything after 7 pm?

I don't have morning reflux but I can have very bad ones during the day. Here is what helped me. I take in the morning first thing two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar (organic unfiltered with the mother) with double the amount of water...some people add half teaspoon of baking soda. Maybe since you already have another condition you could dilute a bit more adding more water at the beginning...better research it yourself on reflux and acv and decide if that something good for you.

Edited....just realized the topic was heartburn and not reflux. I think acv might still help but google it.
