For the past 6 months I’ve had this tight feeling just below my sternum, it hurts when I push in with my fingers. In the past 3 months I’ve had 2 attacks of burning in the stomach that goes up my throat accompanied with pain across my back. The first time it happened I had eaten some crackers and apple sauce just before falling asleep, the pain woke me up during my sleep. The second time I was drinking some lemon tea (since lemon is supposed to be good for GERD), and I also ate the lemon wedge, what a mistake that was. My stomach was an inferno.
My doctor prescribed Dexilant but I had some major bloating that I just could not take. So I started one pepcid ac a day (since the limit is 2 per day I didn’t want to risk anything) which seemed to give a slight improvement, but I’m still suffering.
So far chewing gum is the only thing that helps but the relief doesn’t last long.
Every day I have this gnawing and burning felling in the pit of my stomach. My stomach also feels bloated and I have difficulty burping, I need to jump around to get it out. Lately even my mouth and nostrils have a burning sensation. I’m still waiting for some tests results but most are ok so far. The only thing found was that I have 3 gallbladder stones (5, 6, and 7mm) which my doctor didnt seemed concerned about.
I’ve tried ginger, but it irritates my stomach
Lemon, causes an inferno in me.
Many have mentioned apple cider vinegar but I’m honestly scared to eat anything let alone apple cider vinegar.
I’ve read so much online but I have no idea what this is; Acid Reflux, Bile reflux, hiatial hernia, Candida ??
This is so frustrating. If anyone can provide some help I would be very grateful…
btw, im a 38 yo male...good health but I do have ibs
