I do. I don't have any problems. I use to get really bad reflux after working out before my diagnosis.

Andrea Bodo
are you on meds for GERD ?

Scott Kerr
I go gym everyday but my PPIs keep my acid at bay

Carol Brammer
Yup all the time ... Nexium keeps the acid silent :)

Now I am hearing these drugs cause kidney failure and dementia. I think I will take my chances and take them anyway

Lucy Worsham
I seen a commercial about this on television and they had lawyers representing people who have been affected.

If also leeches the body of magnesium. My mother-in-law was on Omeprozole and ended up having to have magnesium infusions in hospital every week. I'm on 60mg Omeprozole a day and I get angular cheilitis which is a sign of aneamia/vitamin B deficiency.

The only thing I can tolerate before working out is Dextrose. I can't eat, even 6 hours after eating I still feel full and nauseous if I work out.

Andrea Bodo
do you have delayed gastric emptying /

Jen Brindlow
I have never been able to find a good time to workout without refluxing. I'm on 60mg of omeprazole and it was the same when I was in 80mg of nexium. How long should I wait before working out when I've eaten?

Sharnell Davina Myers
I think so Andrea. On Tuesday I had plum tomatoes and hash browns for dinner at around 8pm. I threw it up at 3am and it looked completely undigested.

Andrea Bodo
My GI doctor told me not to eat chocolate, tomatoes, peppermint, anything acidic with my GERD. He also told me not to go to bed for 3-4 hours after eating. I don't think I would have done too well either :-)

Sharnell Davina Myers
Sounds like good advice. I must try it. Currently I have a burning stomach, belching and diarrhoea. I don't dare eat anything.

Andrea Bodo
Sharnell Davina Myers are you drinking carbonated drinks ? that can wreak havoc for us..... Do you have Gaviscon or something for your gastritis ?
don't despair... you'll figure it out..... we all are learning by trial and error and tweaking things in our diets, lifestyles etc... do you drink coffee ?
