Questions about acid reflux?
I have had some stomach issues lately I suspect may come from acid reflux. I was briefly bulimic, for a few weeks in college. After a few weeks I stopped cold turkey. Since I stopped I have noticed a few things. First my stomach would get really loud, and embarrassing. I would sit in a chair after dinner and the noise of my stomach was frequently so loud that I felt uncomfortable and embarrassed about it. I always hate it when my stomach is loud and it wasn't a problem until recently. I also had issues with constipation. A few months after that, when I came home for break, and I started noticing a few things. I felt pressure in my chest, usually after I ate. I always felt it in my lower chest, and would have to take a very deep breath to counteract the pressure and feel normal again. I also had blood in my stool, but I just figured it was just constipation again. I also started getting gassy, and belching always humiliated to be doing so though thankfully, not farting. After that I felt myself throwing up more and more again. There was a point in my life, when I was vegetarian pre bulimia when I'd just throw up, with no nausea or taste of stomach acid, I'd just throw up. I always thought it was a vegetarian thing, but it restarted again when I went back to college. I attributed it to a psychological reaction being back, that my bulimia had returned, and that I was psychologically inducing purging out of stress. Now I have developed a sharp chest pain I feel after eating. For the most part I'm fairly healthy. i have a BMI of 22.5, tend not to eat carbs, eat lots of fruits and veggies, I have an addiction to greek yogurt I eat at least one serving a day don't drink soda. I've never had a very big appetite, in fact I'm rarely hungry, so I eat even when I'm not. I do sometimes indulge in cookies, cakes, etc, but only when I'm emotional, or pmsing. And usually in small amounts. Do I have acid reflux? Is it caused by my past bulimia or something else? What can I do to improve my symptoms? Will it ever go away? I do love spicy food, but my stomach stuff got worse when I went to college and started eating blander food, then returned home. Could it have anything to do with celiac disease, I've been hearing a lot about that lately. Thanks

What to eat when you have bad acid reflux?
I have bad acid reflux. I throw up a lot of my supper every night. I am on omeprazole and it hasn't worked for a week and I may have to go to the hospital if It don't work in a few weeks because it may have something worse to do with it.. I've had it 2 months and just went to the dr the other day for a physical and mom mentioned it. So now it's gotten worse. I am 13 and It hurts my stomach and throat if its a whole lot. Tonight nd last night I was getting choked on it coming up. But I can eat breakfast and lunch and it not come up.. What do I do about supper? What do I eat? To fill me up but not throw up? Pretty much everything I eat comes up.
Anyone else experience acid reflux like this..and any advice?
For going on 7 years now I have been diagnosed with GERD and its been a constant battle to find anything that works well for me. I am currently on a 40mg dose of Protonix but for quite awhile now it seems to not be working the best. With the GERD, I do experience the usual up and down acid reflux thats more of an annoyance rather than a major issue but then there are times that the reflux is unbearable. I wake up choking and coughing, not being able to breathe due to the extreme burning in my throat. It literally feels like someone has branded the back of my throat with a hot iron. I have even had the stuff come up out of my mouth and leave welts because it burned around my mouth. It also brings along a kind of soapy taste and I can feel the burning all the way down into my chest. It feels like utter misery when this is happening and even felt like I would pass out from lack of oxygen because I can't catch my breath from the burning being so bad. I will have a sore throat and a cough for days after an episode. I try taking some liquid antacid, drink water and also eat a piece of plain bread to help absorb the acid but honestly, nothing has really helped. I talked to my GI doc about this and she honestly didn't say too much and recommended a GI cocktail that had Mylanta and Lidocaine mixed in, however my insurance didn't cover it and I couldn't afford it on my own. Does anyone else experience this same thing where their symptoms from this reflux are THIS bad? If so, what are some things that work well to help?I have been on a number of medications throughout the years all including Prilosec, Pepcid, Prevacid pretty much all OTC acid reducers and then also Nexium as well none of these worked then eventually ended up on the Protonix. I also have been diagnosed with Eosinophilic Esophagitus which in itself has had me on alot of different treatments to try. I am 19 and have had these problems since I was 12 so I saw a number of pediatric doctors, then moved onto an adult doctor when I turned 18. I have had about 14 endoscopies over the years to recheck my cell count and inflammation and I do show scarring and alot of inflammation of my esophagus. I have also had colonoscopies which are normal and have had a gastric emptying test which shows delayed digestion in my stomach and a Ph study which showed I have an over production of acid. I also currently have ongoing nausea which can come about anytime of the day and is almost a daily thing and have been on Reglan before but stopped it due to s due to side effects, I have also been on Zofran but it didnt work well. I am now on Promethazine as a rescue nausea med. If you have anymore questions, I will inform anyone the best I can on what I have tried and what I've been through already
