Stomach gas and bloating with all medcations.

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hi, I've been suffering from GERD for nearly 2 years now, although possibly longer before being diagnosed. 

I've been on Omeprazole, Lansoprazole and Ranitidine.

I've found that I have the best results on Lansoprazole, with my heartburn completely cured. The main problem I'm having is stomach gas and bloating after eating or drinking. Any form of fizzy drink is out of bounds, even a few sips can cause discomfort. What's worse is I can't even go out to have a few drinks, I know I shouldn't be drinking with GERD, but being only 28 and not being able to drink does severely limit my social life.  

I was wondering if anyone else has this issue and what can be done to remedy it.
