My daughter has been diagnosed with really bad acid reflux and oesophagitis.

Does anyone experience constant stomach pains & vomiting as a result of this.

She never mentions a burning sensation or an acid feeling just stomach pains - often so sharp they double her up ? Is this normal with acid reflux etc ?

    I'm sorry to hear about your daughter. I have suffered for many years with gerd and I am currently looking onto surgery. I suffer from

    Terrible pain each day especially after

    Eating. Eating smaller meals may help and avoiding certain foods, fried and gassy drink

    Are best avoided as this will increase the

    Acid. Has your daughter been given

    Medication to help with the acid reflux.

    I hope this helps

    Yes she has been given medication for 30 days - if there is no improvement they are fitting a Bravo clip to check ph levels again - next step would be an operation ??

    We cannot connect any particular foods or pattern to the stomach pains which does seem odd. She can have the stomach pains and vomiting for weeks - then will pick up and feel okay for a few weeks before it all starts again - which does seem odd ?

    Been suffering just recently with very sharp stomach pains, so yes it can be a problem with acid reflux. I take an additional PPI, rest by lying straight, and it goes off after a while

    I never get a burning sensation or acid feeling but I have been diagnosed with reflux and take a high dose PPI to control it. Symptoms do vary with this condition

    She was dairy & wheat free for a long time ..... But eventually we decided it wasn't making a lot of difference so reintroduced. Medication seems to be helping (only been 4 days) but early days.

    Thanks for all the comments.

    We cannot connect any particular foods or pattern to the stomach pains which does seem odd. She can have the stomach pains and vomiting for weeks - then will pick up and feel okay for a few weeks before it all starts again - which does seem odd ?classic pattern to Coeliac Disease behavior bc it's autoimmune. It's not the same animal as an allergy... Completely different and hard to pin down. It can lie dormant in the body for a season & then BAM! Sick again. Its triggered by gluten which is found in wheat, rye & barley and is contained in many processed foods, lip balms, toothpastes even medicines.

    does she hv any gas problems or dis colored extr smelly stools?
