Acid Reflux
0

5 posts in this topic

I've been gluten-free since Sept 28th and I know I'm not getting glutened. When I went gluten-free I felt 100times better for a long time but the last few weeks it is like I'm back to square one again with awful acid reflux. I'm getting more tests on thursday and my doc recommends doing a new colonoscopy and endoscopy after Christmas. I'm on protonix for now, but he thinks there is a possability for refractory sprue (lets pray not)...any one else go through this?

Hugs

The only time I ever had a heartburn type of thing is when I tried roasted pumpkin seeds. Those darn things gave me a hard time for the next 24-36 hours. I wouldn't call it reflux though, just a burning type of feeling. Anyway, I suppose it might be a new food you've introduced.

Seems to me that "acid reflux" used to be called heartburn, which is commonly caused by indigestion. Apparently, when the acid in the stomach is diluted too much, food sorta sits there. Remember that stomach acid is supposed to be very strong - enough to dissolve your own hand in about three minutes!

One thing that many have found to give relief is apple cider vinegar. I know it doesn't seem like the sort of thing to take for heartburn, but I've read numerous testimonials on it. It seems it will help bring up the acid level in the stomach, aiding digestion, thus solving heartburn caused by indigestion. Google will turn up various articles on how much to use, but from what I read it must be the real thing, not the flavored vinegar. It also happenes to be naturally gluten-free too :)

So, by taking antacid, you are basically defeating the natural process, and the relief comes only when there isn't enough acid left to do anything. That's probably why people who take it end up using it all day too.

Hope this helps you.

I've noticed that certain types of gluten-free breads give me really bad heartburn. Have you been able to tie it to a certain food type, or is it everything? I haven't been able to tie mine to any particular grain, as all of the gluten-free breadstuffs use so many different flours. If I crave baked goods I know I'll be going for the gluten-free antacids later.

Honestly, my GI and I think it is probably from contaminated Zelnorm. It started when I switched Pharmacies and had nothing but problems there (The pharmacist even read ingrediants to me and asked ME if it contained Gluten). Beware of Carteret NJ Walgreens if your celiac. This was the first time I ever got Zelnorm outside the manufactures presealed container and that is when my problems started....I stopped taking the zelnorm and I'm starting to feel better. Hopefully that is it. I'm never going to that pharmacy again! There was no need for them to take it out of the pre sealed manufacturers container when it is already in a 30 day supply from Novartis (the drug maker)...I guess they wanted to contaminate it with their wheat talc covered latex gloves. I hate people who have no clue about gluten and touch my stuff! I just hope I get better now.

Hugs

    • hey i've been vegetarian for 8 years and gluten free for almost a year. its difficult since they are kind of opposites. i actually just noticed the advertisemnts from the cancer counil here is australia now has meat listed next to alchol, cigarettes and the sun. a few years ago when i read about it, it seemed hot dogs and super processed meats like salami were the only issue. which i only remember when i see a sausage sizzle to raise money for cancer lol  but it surprised me that now the guidelines are including red meat as well and smaller amounts. https://www.cancercouncil.com.au/1752/cancer-prevention/diet-exercise/nutrition-diet/other-foods-nutrients/meat-and-cancer-3/ so i would reccomend easing into it and slowly replace meat with alternatives to make sure you are getting enough protein etc get your iron and b12 levels checked every now and then. buffalo cauliflower and eggplant schnitzels are two of my favorites. you can also make alot of cheeses and sauces out of nuts and tofu. i also eat alot of falafel, hommus and tahini. i can send you some links to recipes if you like
    • I'm going to guess the additive effect of a few months of mystery CC glutenings (since resolved), plus heavy training load. The last time I had my antibodies/iron checked in Feb 2016, both were good. Since diagnosis to that point, I'd been taking iron supplements only sporadically, but stopped altogether at that point as my ferritin was quite high (hemochromatosis runs in my family, so some concern about taking too much iron). Unfortunately, my DH is only speculative - I've seen a dermatologist in an attempt to get it biopsied/prescribed Dapsone, but she was convinced it had to be acne as it "did not look exactly like in her textbook." My protestations that this was because it she was looking at the remains of a rash that I'd picked the heck out of were sadly ignored. I do have a GI appointment coming up in a few weeks though.
    • I'd love to visit! I'm half Irish and half English and would so adore to see Ireland. I loved England when I visited a million years ago. People were so kind.
    • Whatever you do,  run to the store now and eat donuts and bagels. Because I think when your endoscopy is done and over with you're not going to see them again. There are a lot of really good gluten-free cookies, cupcakes, brownies, etc.  Donuts and bagels... not so much. Hope you feel better soon after you get some answers! 
    • Thank you! Im going to check them out now
