My name is Jeff and I have been suffering for over a month with Gerd and Nausea.  The mornings have been the worst but sometimes it drags even longer throughout the day.  I have been taking Nexium in the evenings and in the morning I take a 150mg Zantac which seems not to work very well with the nausea.  My appetite went down considerable and I have actually lost about 12 pounds in the last 2 weeks. The nausea makes it hard to eat and when I do eat, I don't get diareaa, but something pretty close like really soft stools.  I'm losing weight because Im not eating very much.  Doe's anyone have any suggestions on how to possible control my nausea and what are a some good foods that I could eat.

Hi there and welcome,

If you are new to GERD it's best to get thoroughly checked out and have an endoscopy. Ask to be tested for Helicobacter and coeliac disease.

Nausea is one of my main symptoms and I take my ppi at about 9.00 pm to combat that. I also chew DGL when I wake up and that helps a lot.

If my nausea is very bad it does seem to have some effect lower down and affect the bowel. However, if your bowel symptoms persist you should get that checked out too as there may be a problem affecting your whole GI tract e.g. Inflammation or coeliac disease.

Have you raised the head of the bed?
Avoiding eating 3 hours at least before bed?
Cut out tea, coffee, alcohol and smoking?

If you've only had GERD a few weeks then definitely enquire about Helicobacter for starters!

Many different kinds of digestive disorders can lead to nausea, including gastroesophageal reflux disease. Ginger ale and chamomile, lemon balm or ginger tea are good choices for nausea. If you’re also vomiting, suck on ice cubes and drink water, broth or sports drinks such as Gatorade to prevent dehydration.
Eat crackers or toast to absorb excess stomach acid.  You should also avoid fatty or spicy foods, which can upset the stomach further.
Maalox, Rolaids, or  Tums may help  to neutralize stomach acid.  Just a few ideas that have worked for me when I have minor problems with nausea.
Be well,
