I Will be aking the Doc to put me on that the next time I see him..

I had to alter my diet a bit at one point... The Heartburn was so incredibly bad... At first they thought I had an Ulcer..

They asked me if I DRANK, I said Yes... They asked me is I drank SODAS, I said yes.. They aske me how Many, I said 12-20 a day... They asked me what my diet was... I said JUNK... They asked me how many times a Day I ate... I said a small snack here and there with a good meal squeezed in somewhere.. Then Stress came into play... I guess I was stressed pretty good to...

In the end I had to make some changes with everything above.. I had to kill off the sodas and quit drinking so much... A drink now and then wasn't going to hurt, just not everyday... Had to alter my diet... That was hard...

I stayes away from the acidic caffieene( spelling ) fortified sodas for about 6 months... Thats right I managed 6 months... And then one day at a friends house I had a Mt Dew.. Man O man you can just taste the Caffine in it... Had to lick my lips... Then I got the taste for beer back in my mouth again...

I'm not doing as bad as I was, I have reverted back to some of my old ways... But I try to eat a little better, Anytime I'm outside( this is warm Florida ) I usually drink Bottled water instead of soda.. Maybe some tea from time to time or a little OJ... I steer clear of super spicy foods... I miss my 10 alarm wings and Tacos... And my Mom is Japenese so you know there is some good stuff there...

If you can get back to the docs you'll want the Prevacid or the Nexium<---- This is the mercedes of tummy pills...

In the end with the aid of the medication your gonna have to make some changes, Alcohol and Caffine are going to among them...

I had some problems with that and was told to raise the head of my bed so I put the headboard on cinderblocks and it helped. I don't have to take anything for the reflux. I don't drink anything besides water if it is close to bedtime and I try not to eat anything at least an hour or so before I go to bed.

Good luck!!

This doesn't work for everyone with acid reflux, but I tried it and have been "cured"
Do an intrnet search for natural cure for acid reflux. you'll find quite a few sites that suggest the following:

Put 2 talespoons of apple cider vinegar in a cup of water with 1 tablespoon of honey.

Drink once in the morning & once in the evening.

The honey is for the taste. It must be apple cider vinegar, not ordinary vinegar.


I'm a diabetic, so I just drink it without the honey.

I just drink it once in the morning before breakfast & no longer suffer from the acid reflux, and rarely even get heartburn!!!! I've been doing this for 8 months now. I got scared after reading that most reflux medications screw with other bodily functions.

Try it... I hope it works for you. If you don't like drinking the vinegar, eat a few salads during the day with apple cider vinegar & olive oil for dressing. It'll help with your cholesterol also!!

Hmmmm.....

Interesting. I might have to try this one. I've never been officially diagnosed with Acid Reflux, but I do get heartburn, or whatever, on pretty much a daily basis (wonder if it has to do with one real meal a day, supported by probably 2 pots of coffee)

Not only does lifting the head of the bed relieve Acid Reflux it also helps decrease snoring. It has been proven to work.

My problem with acid reflux is 100% tied to drinking sodas (in particular cola or caffeinated sodas)... if I don't drink sodas, no problem. Just so happened that one day this started to be a problem... had sodas for years and years without an issue. Go figure.

How old are you? Is that all you ever drank or did you just have a few and drank other beverages?

I'm 26.

About a year and a half ago is when the problem actually emerged. I was probably drinking 24 to 36 ounces of soda a day at that point. Then again, this was a point in time where I became more sedentary as well (I gained over 10 lbs in one year, I no longer drink that much soda in a day and lost almost 20 lbs, with no change in activity, ie. still sedentary). Prior to that, when I was in college I think that I would drink 12 to 24 ounces a day, never had an issue (or at least never noticed one) as far as I can recall.

I haven't had a soda all day, I feel great today!

I guess I should add that if I stay up really late I get a bit of reflux as well. (thus though I stated earlier that it was 100% attributed to soda I suppose that this is not the case)
