Has anyone been diagnosed with lack of acid? I just read it can cause GERD symptoms. I've been trying to figure out what's wrong with me since all the tests came back normal and none of the meds are helping. It's an interesting thought.

Where did you read this? Do you happen to have a link?

I've often wondered about that. It seems like when I have a "flare up" and I'm taking my normal PPI along with maalox or rolaids or whatever I have at the time, I always have the feeling I should just stick it out because perhaps I am neutralizing too much acid. I mean you have to digest your food, right? Maybe when I take all the extra stuff it prolongs the flare up? But it sure is hard not to take them, especially at night when all you want to do is sleep.

You can find a few links if you google it. Here's the one that has the at home test.

It totally makes sense to me. I would imagine if this is the case, all the meds just make it worse.
