gerd/reflux vomiting

Posted , 2 users are following.

Hello, i am not sure if this is related to gerd or what but i had a rough night last night. During the day i had no issues, i have increased my fiber intake by eating oatmeal and taking a tablespoon of metamucil twice a day with 12oz of water. I have been handling that well with little to no issues. I also take zegerid in the am and zantac 150 in the pm, around 8-8:3-

After dinner i ate a meal that normally causes me no distress, but after the meal i took my vitamin D with some lemonade and i started to get some bad acid issues. Mainly pain in my upper abdomen and minor bloat. I took my zantac and that seemed to have helped me feel better. I took my verapamil at 10pm with water and had no issues as well. However, where i think i messed up was i had a late night snack that consisted of a couple of small pickels, a peice of hunters sausage and some tiny thin bread sticks about 15-20 minutes before i took my mag ox. when it came time to my mag ox, i took it at 11pm with 10-12 oz of water and felt bloated almost right after and eventually vomited 1 1/2 hours after i took the med. Nothing was reconizable except bits of the pickles and what looked like bits of hunter sausage, it also tasted very acidic. I had the urge to vomit again a couple of hours later but that was only dry heaves. Could this mistake have kicked up the reflux again or could it have been the mag ox + large amount of water? I felt fine when i ate the food but when i took the med is when it kicked in. 

I am still learning my limits, but its frustrating that i can mess up so easily

    Hi kyomagi

    If you suffer with acid reflux you should take all meds with water also vitamins..fizzy drinks like lemonade with vitamins will cause acid reflux also pickles and spicey wishes

      Hi kyomagi

      I think you answered your own question....obviously the snacks and magnesium oxide caused you to be sick...spicey pickles and sausage obviously didn't mix with the Mag Ox. It appears you take a lot of medication. Leave out all spicey food and fizzy drinks. Eat a bland non-spicey diet. Leave out fried foods, fizzy drinks, spicey foods, citrus fruit and drinks. You will then not have to take so many anti acid reflux meds. Your tum can't deal with all you are putting into wishes..

      thanks for the info.  Whenever i have a gerd/ibs attack it goes into the next day, pretty rough 24h.  But i will have to modify my diet and stop the food after a certain time from now on.
