Acid Reflux - Hot weather

Posted , 3 users are following.

Its been quite hot down here in the South East today ( UK ) and I seem to have had a bad day with acid. All day I have had a metalic taste in my mouth a pain in my shoulder and an acid smell in my nose so I am wondering whether anyone else experiences the same in hot weather.

To make it even worse I have felt very tired all day as well.

All comments would be appreciated.

    If you are taking any calcium supplements or ant-acids such as Tums, Gaviscon, calcium carbonate then stop them immediately and drink a can one zero coke a day until it clears up. (The phosphoric acid in the coke helps the stomach to rebalance it's acid levels)

      Mary sorry to read you are also suffering. Its funny you should mention checking my acid levels because yesterday I ordered son pH test strips. Purely because I want to use them and record my acid levels to show my doctor as like many others on here my doctor seems blaise about my illness.There are of cause worse things to suffer from but this acid reflux is proving to be a real pain Ted
