Anyone have reflux here? Im 180 cm and 88kg. I took ppi and h2 blocker. Doc said they wont do surgery. Ive been coughing for a while now and I also have chest tightness. Exercising like running is hell because of this. Why do docs refuse to do surgery and let me suffer even the medications arent working.

    you need to be pretty strict about your diet and medication and stick with it long term for your esophagus to heal.
    they won't do surgery because it's irreversible and reserved for the worst cases.

    I had it for years. It went away after I stopped drinking heavily. I still eat the same fatty foods and drink 10+ cups of coffee daily. All I did was stop drinking a ton of alcohol all the time.

    my reflux was caused by candida overgrowth, omeprazole and most anti-acids i took didn't help much. did an endoscopy and nothing was wrong with my stomach. i had some other symptoms like a white rash on my tongue that never went away with brushing. i took fluconazole weekly for three months i think, and it went away

    I had horrific GERD for months when I was an alcoholic and generally unhealthy. All the israelite pharma (ppi, h2 blocker, some type of powder I put in water and drank) did absolutely fricking nothing (wow no surprise). You absolutely don't want the surgery moron.

    You know what fixed it? Cleaning up my lifestyle and bad habits.

    Do you smoke or drink booze?

      Basically this. Smoking and heavy drinking cause it. Stop smoking and cut back/stop drinking.

    I drank heavily and smoked for ten years. Quit both a few years ago, but still have pretty bad reflux. Omeprazole helped and now I'm on Pepsid AC which also helps a lot, but damn, I hope it gets better eventually. At this point my diet is nearly perfect, lots of fermented foods, and I don't lie down for four hours after dinner. Still, it persists.

      Shouldn't take that long to heal. I was drinking like a fifth of liquor every day and smoking pot all the time and my shit healed in maybe 4-6 months.

      Are you fat?

  9. 2 months ago

    Same issue.
    Most days it's manageable but if I start eating simple carbs or fats then it doesn't matter how small my meals are they just end up sitting in my throat. The worst is dairy foods they just want to come back up.

    I've found a decent window of relief from fasting where it will be in remission for a few weeks. Apples help a lot too.

    Fix diet and stop drinking alcohol.

    I started taking pantoprazol 40 mg in august and it worked instantly. Doctor told me to take it daily for 6 weeks than take it if needed and now I take like 2 pills a week but like other anons said fixing diet will fix your problem.

  12. 2 months ago

    I don’t smoke, I don't drink, my diet isn't perfect but it is better than most, sleep normally.
    Have to take omeprazole every day if I don't want to spend my life very slowly vomiting.

      >perfect diet
      And what's that? If you tell us
      >Plant based, low meat
      You've got memed son and need to reverse the order.

    Had it like a motherfricker when I was 280lbs, now that i'm 200lbs it's never an issue. I also stopped drinking soda and liquor for the most part when I decided to lose weight, that might have been part of it.

    >h2 blocker
    oh shit Black person what the frick are you doing
    you have a bacteria and gut motility problem

    • 2 months ago

      its almost never a bacteria or gut meme problems. its almost 99.99999% obesity and/or smoking + booze. the muh gut microbes theory is fricking moronic nonsense.

    Do NOT get surgery, and you need to wean yourself off of the ppi and h2 blocker asap. Think about this: avid reflux is cause by the sphincter between your esophagus and your stomach failing to keep the stomach acid where it's supposed to be (in the stomach). Thus, stomach acid ends up somewhere it isn't meant to be (the esophagus), where the body doesn't have cells designed to handle an acidic environment, leading to damaged tissue. What would be the logical solution to this? TO FIX THE SPHINCTER DYSFUNCTION THAT'S CAUSING THE PROBLEM IN THE FIRST PLACE!

    Instead, what do doctors do? They prescribe you meds that reduce your stomach acid. That's like treating an infected wound with painkillers; you're treating the symptoms rather than the cause (this is how all modern medicine works btw). However, what about the side effects of the medication? Yoir stomach acid exists for a reason: it breaks down food and kills pathogens. Without it, you won't digest your food properly and you'll set yourself up for small intestinal bacterial overgrowth. Look up the links between PPIs and stomach cancer, and other side effects. You're crippling your body's natural digestive mechanism for temporary symptom relief.

    Fix your diet. Get off the meds asap. Do an elimination diet to figure out what foods trigger your reflux (likely seed oils or grains). Do NOT get a hasty, irreversible procedure done that you might regret 10 years down the line. That should be an absolute last resort after you've exhausted ALL alternative options.

    t. diagnosed with GERD a decade ago, doc tried to put me on PPIs. Did my own research instead, fixed my diet, and now I'm completely cured. Frick doctors. They will ruin your life for a paycheck.

    Try chewing some gum like pic related (contains Sodium Bicarbonate) both before and after meals. Also eat slow and let your food cool before you eat.

    I have Laryngopharyngeal Reflux and this made a big difference to me.

    I got poisoned and burned my entire throat/stomach a few years ago. Almost died. I had too much stomach acid after that (100% sure).

    Autistically researched reflux, not a doc, just my own experience. Here's the QRD
    >You either have too much/too little acid
    >Fricks with your stomach Ph
    >Sphincter can't function properly
    What do?
    >Sleep on LEFT side or special bed or wedge pillow that lifts up stomach.
    >Your body produces acid somewhere in the morning, reduces acid production at night. BE ASLEEP AT THAT TIME OR IT FRICKS YOU UP.
    >No food 2/3 hours before bed, but make sure you aren't hungry either, so eat well before that. Hunger promotes acid production.
    >Spot foods that causes reactions. Milk is one of them sadly, but everyone's different. Organic banana helped me personally.
    >Try making milk kefir at home, significantly improved my condition.

    Now, here's the thing. I know people on yt tell people to take acid tabs when they have low stomach acid. Please don't do this alone. You have the potential of fricking yourself up.

    Do it the natural way. Eat more acidic food, add some ACV, eat more meat, eat less foods that seep away acid (like a bunch of pasta), smaller meal size, eat more foods that stimulate acid production. Etc.

    That was what I learned in short, good luck anon.
    >Also, I wouldn't go for surgery as a first solution, ever. That might frick you over down the road. Fix all other shit first.

    gerd gay here. i was born with it and its only gotten a bit better once i cut out triggering foods. zantac and tums and shit kind of help but honestly the only solution is diet.
    >carbs bloat the frick out of me
    >have to burp 3-4x after eating every meal
    >have to sleep on left side to alleviate pain
    >start burping during cardio, cant run on treadmills in the gym because smelly burps
    >fricked up enamel on molars and back of teeth cause of acid
    could be worse tbh

    Every over acidic frick around here, listen: get your gall bladder removed and enjoy the normalcy again. Fixed me instantly. In and out of hospital in 24 hours. Simple as.

      >What "fixed" me will fix everyone
      Dangerous mindset anon.

      Also, you may develop fat soluble vitamin deficiencies down the road.

    food diary. also write down after what it was the most intense. then search for common denominators in the foods. start an elimination diet until you feel well. then reintroduce those denominiators one at a time. find out which one causes it.
    for me it was fructans and probably fructose as well
