Hi everyone. This is my first ever post on this group.
Had GERD for just over 1 month... it immediately followed on from an anxiety disorder (which i still have but am working on.. a health anxiety... great eh? )
Anyway, I read time and time again that one way to reduce GERD symptoms is to loose weight. The thing is I'm very slim already. Probably lost about 3/4 stone over the last couple of months due to the anxiety side of things. Anyway, since having the GERD, I've lost a bit more while I've been struggling with symptoms.. and figuring out what i can and cannot eat (it really does rule your life).
The weight loss is not what I'd call dramatic or unexplained as, because I've been feeling rubbish, my appetite has been rubbish and eating less than normal and not really taking in any fats... I've had insomnia too (partly down to anxiety) so i know I'll be burning more off through the night.
So - there's my brief history. Does anyone have any GERD friendly foods that i can get down my neck please?
BTW, I've seen a specialist, just started Lansoprazole and I'm getting a few tests week after next but he's not concerned with anything sinister.
Thank you in advance
P.S It doesn't help that I'm a fussy eater anyway!
