Hi, to all the sufferers of LPR (silent reflux)
I was wondering as to whether you could all tell me whether you feel as though you have gas trapped in your stomach, colon or both? And does it get worse with eating?
As LPR is mainly through gas reflux, I am wondering if an overproduction of gas is part of our problem. I know I wake first thing in the morning and even before I've eaten the gas starts in my stomach?
I'd be very grateful for replies. turn

LPR, is the backflow of stomach contents up the esophagus and into the throat. The injurious agents in the refluxed stomach contents (refluxate) are primarily acid and activated pepsin, a proteolytic enzyme needed to digest food in the stomach. The damage caused by these materials can be extensive.  Do you happen to have IBS also as people with IBS frequently suffer from bloating and gas.

Isn't gas buildup the byproduct of bad bacteria digesting food rather than your stomach acid breaking it down? I have read that a common symptom of having a bacterial infection is gas and bloating after eating.

I have LPR - 60% in a gas form. I occasionally get a bit of IBS, however I am led to believe from my ENT Consultant that a lot of LPR is in a gas form.
