Hey guys. I used to have really bad anxiety-related acid reflux, but I got it under control with Nexium after about 3 months of it.  I also have horrible IBS now, but anyway.
I usually dont have problems with acid anymore, but I went out and ate
*bread with olive oil
*salad with italian dressing
*lasanga with tomatoey Bolognase sauce
*chocolate cake with fudge saucy stuff
was that like the worst meal to eat ever? Cuz now I have that classic unsettled feeling, bloating, and kinda gripping feeling in my stomach. plus the nasty stuff that comes up. I took a Pepcid AC, helped for a while but then I drank a bunch of water and now its WORSE! ahhh I just need feed

Sorry to learn that you are feeling bad, I know how that feels. I to have acid reflux and crohn's disease. Before being prescibed nexium I would also have the same reaction that you are suffering from, and yes that was the worst meal ever. All those foods cause an enormous amount of acid to be produce.

Try the following to see if it helps.: 1) ginger tea, made from fresh or ground ginger with honey or suger. Ginger is great for settle the stomach. 2) Take the nexium 30 min. before your first meal. Really keeps the acid production down. 3) plese never, ever, ever ,evvvvveeerr have that combo of food again.

Take care and feel better soon.

Yep, that was pretty bad. Don't beat yourself up; probably most of us do something like that at one time or another. I have discovered that if I'm doing fine I can cheat a little -- a little tomato sauce or a couple of bites of chocolate cake. But not a lot and not more than one offending item.

You didn't mention what you had to drink with the meal. Alcohol or carbonated beverage (soda)? That probably made it even worse.

It would be interesting to report back on how long until you're back to normal. I find that it can take several days or longer before my system completely recovers.

Sorry you had such a bad time of it. I believe your trouble was caused by the pasta, bread and cake. See my other posts. I feel very strongly that the carbs are giving you the symptoms because of gas produced in your intestines by bacteria consuming many of those carbs. Give a try to limiting carbs for a couple of days. You will feel much better.
