Acid Reflux

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

    • Hi Stephanie, I'm also from the UK, I've found this site more helpful than anything we have!  As already mentioned above, in my experience it could depend on what and where you were drinking. Gluten free food and drink isn't always (not usually) 100% gluten free as you may know, maybe you have become more sensitive to even a trace of gluten that is probably in gluten free food/drink. Is it possible you have a problem with corn, particularly high fructose corn syrup that is in a lot of alcoholic drinks? This was a big problem for me and the only alcoholic drinks I can tolerate are William Chase vodka and gin. I contacted the company last year and all their drinks are 100% gluten and corn free, made the old fashioned way with no additives, so maybe try their products if you like the occasional drink and see how you get on. If you drink out, not many pubs sell their products but I know Wetherspoons do and smaller wine bars may too. l was never a spirit drinker but I must say their products are absolutely lovely! Very easy on a compromised gut too considering it's alcohol. I second the suggestion on seeing a natural health practitioner. I've recently started seeing a medical herbalist, as I've got nowhere with my now many food intolerances since going gluten free last year and I've noticed a difference in my health already. 
    • Sorry for the very late reply and thanks for the replies, I didn't get a notification of any. In case anyone else comes across this and has been wondering the same as I was, I did try a vegetable broth and I did react to it in the same way as if I'd eaten the vegetables.  As for the candida, I've been using coconut oil and am seeing a medical herbalist for this and leaky gut. It's only been a few weeks but I've noticed an improvement all round.
    • What did you drink and where did you drink it?   NOTE if you drink something at a bar using their glasses your asking for trouble BEER IS EVERYWHERE in most bars and a CC hell.   If it was at home and a non grain based liqour then I would be really concerned that it might just be alcohol. I personally can not really drink much of anything any more. I love rum, and I cook with it sometimes in sautes. I also have rum extract/butter rum extract/and rum emulsion I use in shakes, homemade keto pudding/ mixed into dishes. and even add some to drink to give it a rum flavor lol.
    • I can only think of two things, 1 something you put on your potato was contaminated like the butter container could have crumbs in it or something like that as mentioned before, and you could be having a reaction to dairy or what ever was put in it.......IF it was just plain potato and you reacted with bloating and cramping you might have a carb issues, tad rare and most associated with additional auto immune diseases but could be in which case a diet of fats and protein would be your answer much like it is for me now days. What all have you eaten in the privous 8 hours including beverages, condiments, spices and foods?
    • They are gluten-free.  Did you use butter that might have gluten crumbs on it?  For me , it takes more than 2 hours to feel the effect of gluten- maybe something you ate before?  Maybe  stomach virus?
