Noklu, because I have Crohn's disease, I have acid reflux, too and I also take omeprazole (Prilosec) for it...and an occasional Tums, if I feel any reflux. That will generally settle things down for me. I have had the inflammation in the esophogus and I do have some scarring. But the Prilosec has helped a lot. I do keep away from spicy food, fried foods, and fatty foods. I don't eat a lot of foods with tomatoes in them either.
For example, a greasy meatloaf will send stomach acid into my mouth in the middle of the night so I avoid things like that. When I make a meatloaf I use the 93% fat free ground meat and just a little tomato. Then I drain any fat off it, too. You may do all of this but just thought I'd pass it along. I'm an avid label reader and that has saved me a lot of reflux over the years!
I hope you get some answers and some help. Feel better, soon!
