I posted about a week ago about my reflux. I took a drug which relaxed my LES and caused me to have pretty bad reflux. I have been off the drug now for about 2 weeks.
I was taking Zantac twice daily up until a few days ago. The reason I stopped was because I was waking up with raging headaches in the middle of the night and I have read that Zantac can cause them. Despite stopping the zantac, I was starting to feel better for the last 3 days. The key to this was probably my diet...very bland, low acid.
Well tonight, I ate hamburger with a few spices on it (onion powder) and I am in pain all over again. So, I took a Tagamet (hoping it won't cause a headache like zantac seemed to be). No relief.
So, I guess my question is how long might I have to eat this very bland diet for? I know it has only been 2 weeks, but I was feeling quite a bit better. Could I have set myself back by eating what I did?
I am also taking DGL licorice and slippery elm, as well as Rolaids, Mylanta and Gaviscon.
I am pretty bummed that I'm feeling so bad again.
