I am wondering if you have had a colonoscopy ? My GI physician dx my IBS and I had many of the same sx as you have posted.
Choose the correct foods to help eliminate gas formation in the gut and acid reflux. Certain foods cause gas, some cause reflux and some foods can cause both.
Fat takes a long time to leave the stomach during digestion. Also, since fat lingers in your stomach, there is more opportunity for it to be forced up through the esophageal sphincter and cause reflux. Choose alternative cooking methods like baking, grilling, roasting and broiling and do not add extra fat during the cooking process.
There are some reflux sufferers who also have problems with gas and indigestion, and those problems mixed with acid reflux are enough to make anyone miserable.
I hope you make that appointment with your Dr. to help answer some of your questions.
