Hi all, I've been wondering recently whether I actually have reflux caused by low acid rather than high. The PPI's aren't helping at all and if anything I actually have more of a feeling that acid is coming up. Normal Gaviscon doesn't do anything but gaviscon advanced that doesn't reduce acid but keep everything down, does help. I heard about the bicarb test (drinking it in water on an empty stomach and timing how long it takes for it to react and produce gas) but I don't know of this actually works. I did it this morning and it took nearly 5minutes which is supposed to be a sign of very low acid but I would like some info from other people that have tried it before I believe it! Xx
