Hi-- I'm a newbie.
I'd dearly love to hear about experiences with stomach pH tests.  I've never had one, and am not sure I could get one, as I live in the boonies, where there's a doctor shortage.  Some people -- mostly naturopaths, I suppose, but some conventional docs, too -- claim that a large percentage of people diagnosed with GERD actually are suffering from low acid, especially those over 50.
I've been on Prevacid over a year and now am on a motility drug. Do all the right things. Not overweight, don't smoke, gave up caffeine, sugar, wheat, alcohol, dairy, etc., etc.  Not doing too well. I'm starting to wonder whether the problem is low acid. If so, I'm on exactly the wrong medication. Sigh.

Hi there, I am also a newbie on the site!
Dont have much to write about stomach ph tests. Also have a "acid" problem LPR - where it comes and burns your throat. Do all the right things, am not overweight, dont drink alcohol, dont smoke, have stopped eating all the things they say causes reflux and been put on PPI's for 6 months with minimal relief and new allergies forming! I also believe that something is not right somewhere along the line with the treatment for this condition. I believe it is somewhat diet related. I have stopped all PPI's and am now on Probiotics to restore the natural balance in my stomach as well as Omega 3 oils, L-glutamine, for a week and have been feeling alot better. I think its worth a try.
