Hello alynnnski

Drinking alcohol causes symptoms to occur in many  people who already have acid reflux disease.  You may want to discuss this question with your physician.  I wish you a Happy Birthday.

Health and Happiness,

Kitt

Do you take medication? Have you discussed surgery with your doctor?

apple mixed drinks that aren't too heavy in liquor or high sugars like grenadine tend to help
