Gluten Problem Or Acid Reflux?

Hi, I'm brand new here and have to say I hope somebody can identify with me! I'm 53 and only now discovered that I have an acid reflux problem! I have had chronic stomach issues all my life. As a newlywed, I would have to sit up in bed to burp in order not to throw up. I just thought it was the way I was.

Two years ago I started a gluten free diet (or nearly) and that helped with the severe constipation and nausea. Then about a year ago, I started drinking Kroger decaffeinated coffee and that seemed to cause stomach aches. Also, I take a little Ambien at night and I'm wondering if that is causing me to fall asleep with an upset stomach, making the acid reflux worse.

I had a scope test and two swollen nodules and am on a month's worth of Omeprazole before another scope test.

Has anyone else been confused between gluten and acid reflux?

I would be thrilled to know I'm not just plain dumb!

Hi there

When I used to eat gluten and now if I eat dairy when I bend over acid runs back.

Not good. If I stay away from them I'm fine.

The doctors misdiagnosed me with GERD problems versus Celiac. Took months and lots of different medicines (none of which worked) before they thought outside that box. If I get glutened I get the worst reflux symptoms and they last for about 24-36 hours.

You mentioned coffee sets it off. Do other drinks with caffeine do the same? Caffeine can cause problems for those who have reflux...along with acidic foods, etc.

I took meds for GERD for over a year (sometimes 2X a day) and the symptoms would still come and go . . . could not figure out a trigger food and the meds didn't really seem to help. Was told I would be taking them for life. When my son was diagnosed with Celiac, I got tested and had a positive blood test. I stopped eating gluten then stopped taking the GERD meds a week later. I have had ZERO GERD symptoms since then (except when I accidently ate gluten) It has been over a year.

You could have GERD for sure, but it may be caused by gluten . . . I wish my doctor had thought to find the cause rather then just treat the symptoms.

My whole search into what was wrong with me started with this "bubbling" I felt in my stomach. The doctor thought acid reflux but I never had that burning, something is moving up, feeling. To make a long story short, I tested negative for Celiac but after becoming VERY sick after two gluten challenges the doc and I settled on "gluten sensitive." The bubbling improved off gluten but is not gone. I happened to see an article on a new book called The Acid Reflux Solution (Dr. Jorge Rodriguez). I decided to order it. I only tried a couple of days of eating how the book described and I already felt much better. The bubbling was basically gone. The problem is, when I gave up gluten I thought, "at least I can still have my coffee and chocolate!" I am having a HARD time stopping those. However, now that I am more aware I do notice an acidic feeling after coffee. I am going to try it faithfully soon and see how I feel. I found the book easy to read. I am new to all this so there might be other books out there.

There is a link between Celaic and Eosinophilic Esophagitus. EoE has many of the same gi symptoms as Celiac, but add GERD like chest pain and vomitting. Diagnoses between child-adult is a difference in the total count of eosinophils found during an endoscopy with biopsy.

I agree. Dairy and gluten set me on fire. Not 100% gone when I am good but that could be because I tend to cheat like an idiot.

    • I asked for their two products yesterday,onion and garlic.Onion powder's package doesnt have starch or wheat on ingredient list but garlic powder has corn starch . I dont have any intolerance to corn by the way. They told me they add starch to two of their products so they are not gluten free. I dont understand why they would put on corn starch on list if it contains wheat starch.I sent another mail to them.  I had nausea last night and this morning but im not sure if it is because of powder or something else.  
    • Well endoscopy done this morning. Said that all looked normal no sign of celiac seen normal duodenal cap and preserved villi. but need to wait for biopsies. Report stated  mild antral gastritis with erythema found  but non specific. Seems like they took a lot of Biopsies. Report stated they took them from lower 3rd and middle 3rd of oesophagus,  the antrum of stomach and area in bulb and 1st,2nd and 3rd part of duodenum. So will wait and see two other children in recovery with us had visible damage on their scope so were told they have celiac disease. Dr review clinic not for two weeks. Thanks for everyone for listening we just want some answers now for her increasing fatigue. But maybe it's not celiac after all.     
    • Look at carreggenan. I am a super sensitive Celiac and have the same auto immune reaction to anything made with seaweed, “the wheat of the sea”, such as MSG, carrageenan, agar and sodium alginate. The food industry is putting it in everything, even so called Misbranded gluten free foods. Even some coconut milk brands now are using it as are nut milks. It is a cheap emulsifier, so we do not have to shake things up! How about shaking up my whole body from it! You may have an iron defiency anemia not being treated or tested. Cookbook doctors treat numbers not patients clinical presentation. I have fired five doctors in eight years for stupidity and dangerous lack of clinical acumen which could have killed me. Do not be afraid to ask questions and confront doctors, you are after all the customer paying for their services.  Eat clean, meaning preparing your own foods. Stay out of restaurants! Gluten free is a joke in most restaurants if you are a celiac. And will cost you weeks of illness. Hang in there. Make bone broth, it has super vitamins and minerals and loaded with pre and probiotics. Go to Dr. Axe’s site. I only do chicken made with feet. I am allergic to beef since being bitten by a deer tick in 2011 and getting Chronic Lyme disease. The chicken feet bone broth is also loaded with calcium and is yummy. Takes a little work, but is well worth it. 😊  
    • Go to the coping section & pinned at the top is the Newbie 101 which will tell you how to prevent cc. Sorry, that's all I have for tonight as it's been a long, long day for me & I am more than ready to turn in. I'll respond further tomorrow. I'm sooooooooo glad to hear you finally have an answer!!!!!
