Looking around the internet I've seen people talk about low stomach acid causing problems which is usually blamed on excessive acid when it fact it may be the opposite. They talk about trying different tests to check such as the baking soda test and taking HCL with a high protein meal. One thing they mention is not to come off the antacid medication quickly but to wean yourself off. This I don't understand as surely taking something like Omeprazole if you are actually suffering from too little acid is going to make things worse so immediately stopping will help. Why would one have to wean themselves off this antacid.
I too suffer from a band of pain under my ribs for the last 3 weeks. Taking Gaviscon gives temporary relief but am currently trying ACV and HCL and doing the bicarb moring test to see if my acids are low. So far nothing is really working although the ACV does seem to give a little relief and my stools are healthier looking.
It's a bit of a minefield as it could be a long list of things, am just fed up with the near constant discomfort/pain.
