Has anyone tried a teaspoon of baking soda for their acid reflux? Currently I take a daily morning lanzoprazole and two slippery elm, (herbal remedy) at night and its been working well but Saturday I went to see a film "I Daniel Blake", excellent stuff, do go along and see it everyone, but right through the show I had dreadful indigestion, quite painful, that's despite an extra dose, earlier, or my slippery elm when it came on me, as I don't like taking extra lanzoprazole, its not medically advised, so I am wondering if this needs another angle and had anyone tried it with any success. The taste may put me off as I am dreadfully sensitive, cod liver oil, which some can stomach, makes me violently sick at the merest thought basically, that's how bad I am with tastes, various other things too which are less impalitable, affect me, however I am willing to try anything to take this dreadfully distressing complaint away and already doing as much as I can so far, I feel.
Incidentally, my history is this, I had four years ago, almost 100% unsuccessful surgery for my prolapsed bowel and also I hear so many accounts from people on the patients forum who have had hernia surgery and it has been a let down or there have been complications and they feel actually worse afterwards so with my history and knowing what I know I am not prepared to risk it, I know what its like to have ones hopes of a cure built up and up and then come crashing down afterwards and also have medical staff think the job they have done, or the operation itself, "hallowed" and refuse to accept you are still, as the patient, very ill, its soul destroying and they are not getting away with it a second time with me I can tell you.
But anyway, having said that, any thoughts, or other "cures" that anyone has tried, your input would be most welcomed.
