I have been experiencing gerd/acid reflux since New Year's Day. Long story short, went to doctor after I started prilosec, was having wheezing (was from my asthma), said continue two weeks, if it returns need to do testing. After stopping prilosec, had steak and immediately had it return. Back on prilosec, got better, had wine and popcorn one night, went to bed, woke up returned. Switched to previcid, did work better, however, not 100%. Went for an ultra sound, gallbladder, liver, etc., all ok, went for pelvic ultra, awaiting those results. Cancelled the upper GI (basically I am a baby) but symptoms are better. However, I look 5 months pregnant. My stomach is bloating so much. Had asian food last night, and now today I feel the food caught in my throat. Does anyone know how to get rid of this bloat? I am drinking herbal tea today but feel I need to do something else. I know the diet has to change, but I do drink wine and coffee, that is a staple in my life. I need to eliminate fatty foods. Any suggestions?
