Hello everyone I'm new to this forum. I've had GERD for 4 years. I've been on PPI ever since (Prevacid, Nexium, Protonix 2x a day). I am 35 years old.
I've done everything so far to alleviate my condition. My bed is elevated 6 inches, I don't eat greasy, spicy, dairy, chocolate, caffeinated, carbonated, acidic foods.
I watch everything I eat. My problem is when I get really acidic, burning sensation in my stomach, terrible acid breath, I tend to munch on something. Like bread,nuts, or eat a small bowl of food. I find that it soothes my stomach when I put something in there. I have tried taking antacid when I'm really acidic, but that alone does not help. I even take Gaviscon, but that alone won't soothe it.
Do any of you have the same problem. Do some of you find the urge to eat when you are so acidic?
If so what should I do to corect the problem?
