'Gastroesophageal reflux disease, or GERD, is a digestive disorder that affects the lower esophageal sphincter (LES), the ring of muscle between the esophagus and stomach. Many people, including pregnant women, suffer from heartburn or acid indigestion caused by GERD

After 6 months of relieve I'm back to acid reflux and I keep getting alot of gas

Damn after 6 months of relieve I'm back to acid reflux hell. The worse part is anything I eat comes back up and I keep getting alot of gas that is causing so much pain under my chest. Jesus Christ, this is horrible considering I'm already dealing with anxiety and depression.

COMMENT:

Shadab Durrani
do you also have gastritis?

Marco Rosales
They did an endoscopy 2 years ago and only found a delayed esophagus. I would be surprise if do have something like that now. This pain feels different.

Shadab Durrani
I also have gas(burping) and minor chest pressure and have been diagnosed with Mild Antral gastritis through endoscopy 4 months ago. I am also not sure if I have delayed esophagus or hiatal hernia :/

Marco Rosales
Shadab Durrani... what measures are you taking?

Shadab Durrani
I am trying to avoid triggers and talking diet that helps me to heal gastritis. I am way way better than before but still not fully cured.

Shadab Durrani
I am thinking to go for barium swallow test to make sure I do not have hiatal herna or weak les.

Shadab Durrani
Btw I never had reflux.

Marco Rosales
Ya I did all those and pylori test but need to retest. I need a better diet and lose weight anyways

Marco Rosales
Shadab Durrani Acid Reflux sucks badly. It feels like a heart attack in your chest.

Shadab Durrani
I am not obese, never even tried alcohol or smoke.

Shadab Durrani
not even drinking soda from 5 months, yes I heard acidreflux is horrible.

Shadab Durrani
May be my LES is fine and just still have gastritis.

Shadab Durrani
but still I am not convinced until I go through another tes.

Marco Rosales
I'm overweight but don't smoke or drink but when I'm going through hard anxiety it makes things worse. I'm not eating the way I'm suppose to as well.

Shadab Durrani
You must have weak LES, have you ever think about going for nissen fundoplication surgery?

Shadab Durrani
Btw i am also on Anxiety and Depression medicine trigger by my gastritis.

Marco Rosales
Yes exactly because nothing else came up in the test that day. It makes no sense besides a weak LES

Marco Rosales
Shadab Durrani Ya it sucks how somehow they're linked. It's a toxic combination

Shadab Durrani
I agree, I was on the verge of suicide due to this.

Shadab Durrani
Do you have excessive burping problem?

Marco Rosales
Shadab Durrani Yesterday I did, but now that I look at my symptoms, it sounds more like a weak LES because I have acid that comes back up and anything I eat I throw it back up.

Marco Rosales
"Symptoms of GERD
People experience symptoms of GERD in a variety of ways. The most common symptom of GERD is heartburn.
Other symptoms may include:
Regurgitation
Sore throat
Cough
Chest pain"

Shadab Durrani
My symptoms are
Burping(even when I sip water)
Very mild pressure and pain in chest
Mild heartburn sometimes

Marco Rosales
Oh ya Shadab Durrani that sounds different than me. I never had a burping problem till yesterday.

Shadab Durrani
As per my research you clearly have weak LES.

Shadab Durrani
And I might have Heital Hernia and Gastritis or just Gatritis.

Kenny Pugh Marco
Antonio Rosales can you try and describe to me. I've been having a lot chest pain myself. Unsure if it's reflux or not

Marco Rosales
Damn it sucks for both of us either way shadab.

Kenny Pugh
The pain I mean

Marco Rosales Kenny Pugh With Acid Reflux, I always get chest pain due to beating the esophagus is taking by the acid coming up. Sometimes I thought it was a heart
Maria Mercieri Marco Antonio Rosales could you have surgery for this?

Kenny Pugh
Marco Antonio Rosales where in the chest do you get the pain? And does it feel like muscle pain and dose it hurt more when you take deep breaths?? Thank you

Marco Rosales
Maria Mercieri Yes there's surgery for a weak LES but I have to be 100% sure.

Marco Rosales
Kenny Pugh: I get it in the middle of my chest. Breathing doesn't really change the pain level.

Maria Mercieri
Marco Antonio Rosales yes that is true you have to be sure it's right for you and a highly skilled surgeon is important too.

Marco Rosales
Yes Maria Mercieri, my concerns exactly

Ngoni Tsumba
I am the same right now had endoscopy last 5 months but the pain in intense feels like I have an ulcer and the area is inflammed in my eosphagus. Jst want to feel normal again

Pearl Zavala
The other day i had some fried rice while eating it i felt like i couldnt breathe after drinking some water my chest started hurting i was worried if i wasnt going too be able to gasp for air felt like the passage way was clogged up. I was quite scared. Hope you feel better its the worse feeling ever...

Ngoni Tsumba
I know my consultant will not agree to doing another scope especially after 5 months maybes they need to change my meds

Ngoni Tsumba
If only I could be immune to stress very bad

Marco Rosales
When my anxiety is bad, my stomach takes a beating too.

Ngoni Tsumba
Feels like me wat meds do u take

Marco Rosales
I used to take Dexilant and that helped me tremendously but I stopped after my insurance didn't cover it. Now I'm going to try natural options or try to get some sample packs of it. I'm taking some omeprazole for the meantime

Ngoni Tsumba
I do take omeprazole does not seem to work.

Marco Rosales
My acid reflux and panic attacks go hand in hand. It sucks balls

Lynn Blanton
I may have already suggested this to some of you but have a blood test to check for a chronic yeast infection. I only had the symptoms all of you are describing ( had scope done also with no results) but a FB peep suggested I get tested. Luckily I had a GP that was will to humor me .Two weeks later she called me and sure enough I was positive. Two 20 days of anti fungal meds and was so much better. Now 1 yr later I am starting to have acid again but still much better than I was.

Marco Rosales
Will definitely consider that Lynn. I know alot of problems can also come from the bacteria pylori.

Shadab Durrani
Lynn Blanton Dietz by chronic yeast you mean H.Pylori?

Lynn Blanton Dietz
No you can actually have a yeast infection that has over grown yeasts that is in your stomach and blood system . More common in people with weak immune systems and have taken a round of strong antibiotics.

Shadab Durrani
I had endoscopy and blood test but they didn't see yeast. and I never took antibiotics.

Astrid Gillespie
The more I read people's comments the more I'm convinced it is brought on by stress or at least worsened. Tough as it is I think while dealing with the reflux I think the stress and anxiety need dealing with too. Best wishes xx

Kirsten Crossley Martano
Also look into small intestinal bacteria overgrowth
