- Got Acid Reflux this past week after eating a lot on vacation
- Food Regurgitation
- Mild Nausea after eating almost anything
- Prescribed Zantac and Mylanta, taking all countermeasures possible
Any tips on coping? Can I get rid of it?
I've had baby burps for a couple months and some of my food would come back up. It would happen more often when I ate chocolate or ice cream. I didn't think it was a big deal.
This last week I was on vacation I ate a lot. I went to a buffet this past Sunday and tried to get my money's worth so, ended up eating too much. I was really stuffed and had some food regurgitation. Some of it was really acidic.
I woke up the next day and did not feel hungry (I normally would be) but, we were staying at a friend's house and the host was insistent I eat. I did and only felt worse. They used a lot of spices and oil in their foods so, I didn't fare well. I walked a lot this day and had coffee (bad idea). My mom also took me to get some medicine that might help. When we told the pharmacist, she said I probably had acid reflux. She recommended Zantac. I took the Zantac and it helped some but, I still had light nausea.
I took Zantac for the next 5-6 days. Sometimes I took it 2 times a day and other times only before dinner.
I got back home yesterday and I was fine the entire day without medicine. I avoided any triggers I read about online. Then relatively late at night, I was hungry so, I had some bread with milk. I was okay for about 20-30 minutes but, then I had heartburn. I wasn't planning on going to sleep for a while and was sitting in a chair to remain upright. I was up for about an hour while the rest of the house was asleep hoping it would stop. I caved eventually and woke up my mom. She gave me a Zantac and it subsided for the most part. My stomach still felt weird.
Today, I went to my doctor and she prescribed Zantac (one a day) and she told me to buy Mylanta. I only took some Mylanta today.
If you have any tips or suggestions please let me know. Thanks
