Hi. I have a hiatus hernia and it feels like the bottom of my esophagus is either inflammed or ulcerated. I have tried various antacids but I've come to the conclusion that they are actually making it worse. I am currently not getting acid reflux...I just need to heal the inflammation. I believe that I am low in stomach acid which probably contributed to me getting a HH in the first place. In desperation I did some internet research into aluminium hydroxide and discovered that it is only absorbable in strong acid. If a person has low stomach acid it seems possible that it is hindering recovery rather than helping. Has anybody else in this forum had a similar problem? I didn't take any after my last meal and feel better for it.
