    Has your doctor checked your gallbladder. Or possible ulcer can cause bad nausea and dry heaves. Need more info of what your doctors are testing for. And how long have you been on reflux meds. Also what are the side affects of your medicine.

    If youre taking PPI they can take away all your normal acids that need to be in your stomach for breaking down foods . A lot of patients on PPI medications are having difficulties with this issue . Instead try a more natural remedy without causing harm to you gut , Ginger tea or Raw Apple Vinegar Cider heals as it helps . If you try this ,leave an update on how it worked for you as it has many , so it can help others as well

      Can acidic things like ginger and apple cider vinegar really help reflux? I would have thought this causes more acid and burning. I always thought acidic foods was bad for reflux and alkaline foods such as milk was more soothing. I have to avoid anything acidic like ginger and raw vinegar. I do much better on OTC antacids or milk which was my grandad's remedy which cured his ulcer. He was a GP. Some people say that science disproves the efficacy of milk and even suggests that it increases acid. For me and my dad, it decreases acid. Everyone is different though.

      Citrus isnt good for acid and reflux . Milk if not lactose intolerant is a great remedy for ulcers and reflux as well due to its bios from a cows stomach lining . It may sound gross but Gid didnt create all things for no reason ! Everything has a purpose

    Sounds like it was caused by the Carmel you ate; try avoiding or reducing the amount you ate. Try asking your doctor for an anti gas medication. Avoid gassy drinks and foods such as Brussels Sprouts, cabbage and spinach. Chew your food well, eat little but often and don't eat late at night. Take your time when eating.
