    Maybe you've got Gallstones, some women do get um during / after a pregnancy, see if you can get your Doctor to send you for a Ultrasound smile

    I really feel for you, I keep asking the same question in my 60s and after 37 years the anwer is for some of us, possibly never. I have discovered that 'anything' can cause it, what we eat - or not, how much fat we are carrying - or not, what we drink, when we drink, do we tilt the bed or not when we sleep, do we sleep on our left side (this is supposed to help). My medication and dosage has been changed several times. My GP suggested taking my medication in two daily doses of 20m omneprozole instead of one 40m but by lunchtime I was in pain again, so I returned to taking 40m in the morning. I also take peptac suspension, however it is peppermint flavour and pepermint is supposed to exacerbate reflux, so will need to change it!! I also have developed IBS and had gall bladder removed 6 years ago, after speaking to others this appears to be a natural progression from acid reflux. Have you been diagnosed with a hernia and had an endoscopy?? Eating little and often seems to help and not eating and drinking after 6pm. Spicy food does not bother me provided I don't eat late. Alcohol makes it worse, as does chocolate, probably because I am a chocoholic and can't just eat one piece. Try changing your eating habits to little and often and not eating after 6, it may help,hope your condition improves.
