'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

Does anyone’s acid reflux get worse on an empty stomach?

Does anyone’s acid reflux get worse on an empty stomach? - Sarah Hayley Eckert.


Ajeng Pawestri
I dont. I'm having fasting because it's ramadhan now. In Islam, fasting is good for those who have gastric problem.

Dave Wakefield
Yes. I always need to eat every 3-4 hours until 6pm. I could never fast, it would make me ill.

Ajeng Pawestri
My stomach feels so much better with fasting.

Renee Whiteside
Ajeng Pawestri my stomach just fills up with more acid if I try to fast. 🤢🤢.

Valerie Holloway Blasberg
Yes, throat burn when I don’t eat.

Sarah Hayley Eckert
That’s what mine was doing. I just put the two together. I’ve started to realize I feel so much better after I eat!

It took me a while to figure out. At first I thought it was a coincidence. Now I know I will have problems if I skip meals. Good health to you!

Michele Pratt
Yes. If the acid doesn't have something to work on it will work on the esophagus.

Sarah Hayley Eckert
And that’s exactly what it feels like.

Catherine Atamian
Mine is much much worse when I’m hungry. When I first had symptoms I had no idea what it was. So I went for weeks without anything to eat. Went to a size 2 (gaunt looking 🙁). When I got diagnosed and started to force myself to eat. I felt better but still got reflux. I choose to eat though. It’s very dangerous path when you stop eating with Gerd. But now I’m just slightly overweight 🤪can’t win.

Jamie Craig
I take Zantac 150 and omeprazole and stay away from triggers it seems to help.

Melanie Hammond
Yes. That’s why I always have a banana on hand. Plus banana coats the stomach,

Carlos Jaye Tarango
Yes. I wondered why that would happen. Thanks for the information.

Sarah Hayley Eckert
Do any of y’all use Apple cider vinegar (in any form) to help?
I was prescribed omeporazole before becoming pregnant. Now that I am pregnant I haven’t been taking it because there aren’t many studies on if it is safe during pregnancy.

Samantha May
I get nauseated
if I wait too long. Lately I've been fasting longer (last night was 4 pm to 7 am) and this morning I woke to a slightly nauseous feeling.

Dawn Foulkes
Painful on an empty stomach & painful when I eat so I'm not winning at the moment.
