Hmmm- sounds like a classic case of acid reflux to me! Try sticking to low sugar and low acid foods, elevate your head at night and report this to your doctor. There a many inexpensive drugs available that neutralize the stomach acid for this condition and you would not want to do damage to your esophagus or stomach from long term acid reflux especially since you seem to be prone to fistulas. As for me....couldn't live without my nexium. I don't get the reflux just a continuous burning fireball in my stomach. I have CD where the stomach empties into the small intestines as well. Should the doctor put you on this class of drugs I would recommend you take it first thing in the morning about an hour before anything else hits your mouth. Also, be careful to note if you feel this class of drugs interferes with your absorbtion of any other of your CD meds. Some have had problems in this area but I have not. Until your doctor gets back to you, the low sugar/low acid foods should help a whole lot! Good Luck!
