i'm trying to figure out what is causing my reflux.. and noticed it was worse today after skipping breakfast.. does it normally worsen on an empty stomach? does it improve after eating?? i do feel it to be a bit better after eating.

thanks and hope everyone is well.

mine is worse if I do not eat. It is recomended that you try and eat small meals through the day rather than 3 bigger meals. Even if it is a snack or something it may help.
Diagnosed GERD, no other medical conditions (this one is enough)

I am absolutely at my worst first thing in the morning when my stomach has been empty for 8 hours or more. Eating generally makes me feel more comfortable, except during really bad flare ups.

New stuff: GERD, Recurrent cystitis/Overactive bladder
Lifelong stuff: Food allergies/intolerance, eczema, asthma

Mine is worse when I don't eat for sure. Small, evenly spaced meals. I have to eat very first thing in the morning like MMM.

I agree. You have to think of it as a little monster you have to feed every couple of hours or so to hours to keep it from getting angry. It's very important to eat several tiny meals a day.

What I have read is involuntarily stomach starts acid pumps at the time of breakfast, lunch and dinner. In case there is no food, this acid could reflux. I don't know if its true. Its better to eat small then no eating at all.
