I'm a 16 year old female (who is not overweight) and I have had acid reflux for about five months now. It has recently gotten worse- I've spat up some blood on multiple occasions. I have eliminated dairy, spicy foods, and citrus from my diet to try and prevent any reflux. Sadly, I still get it very often. I do drink a lot of coffee but I've been cutting down and am on the path to stop drinking it completely. It's been tough lately- whenever I have a meal or snack, or even when I drink water, I can feel it coming right back up. After a bout of having to spit out what I've just consumed, I have to throw up again 30 minutes later even when I don't eat/drink anything afterward. I'm trying hard to avoid regurgitating to keep my teeth and esophagus healthy, but I can't get it under control. It's hard to enjoy eating and I can tell I'm dehydrated. I have also began taking tagamet in hopes to get rid of my symptoms but I feel like nothing is working. I'm at a loss right now and would greatly appreciate any advice I can get!
