Hi,
I have stomach issues that haven't been diagnosed as GERD. I have a burning sensation in my stomach that nexium does take away, so I am thinking it has something to do with acid. Anyhow....
 
When I wake up in the morning my tounge is coated and I have a funny taste in my mouth. This usually makes me spit in the sink and lately my spit has been brown!
 
Anyone else have this and know what it's from?
Hospitalized with Infectious Colitis.
Colonscopy showed ulcers.Diagnose changed to either UC or Crohn's
Whatever it is, I was told its mild...
Medication Asacol 1x3 
Never had a good follow up - no small bowel test at all.
Gastroscopy was normal, but Still have a burning feeling in my stomach.
Looking for a doctor in Oslo who knows what he's doing atm.

Does the taste feel like it's burning or it's cool and minty? Alot of us have complained of this taste. For me, it happens after I eat. I believe that it is acid that builds up overnite and comes up through the throat. I'm still trying to find a cure for it. Doctors don't seem to help.

Hey Whiskeygirl.. Hope you aren't drinking too much of that whiskey with GERD.. :)
I do have that minty taste. I think we both replied to that in another post. Anyhow,
the taste I have in the morning is usually not the minty one, but more like a bad taste.
Actually I was thinking about the spit, cause I only have that color when I spit in the
morning after waking up. If I eat or brush my teeth its gone for the day.

The minty taste we were all talking about in the other post is something I usually get
at one point or another during the day, but I dont always have it everyday. I asked
my GI about it and he looked at me like I fell from the moon.

Pia Sava,

Boy, would I like to have some whiskey, get wasted and forget about how I feel forever, but whiskey won't do the trick. When I told my doctor that I had acid burning up in my mouth, he sent me to a pyschiatrist, he then put me on different anti-depressents and none of them helped, because this is not just emotional, it's a physical thing as well. I can't get why they can't get that. So, now I don't go to doctors anymore.

That's why I only deal with alternative practitioners now. In fact I've worked for a few and you'd be surprised really at how many nurses, pharmaceutical reps, and various types of medical personnel seek natural help because of the attitudes of Medical Doctors and because of the overuse of damaging chemical meds. To each his own, I know, but there are many of us out there.

Unfortunetly, for me, I am unemployed and can't afford right now to see doctors of any kind. So, any advice you can give me from what information you recieve if very much appreciated.

Whiskeygirl, my best advice to you is to stick with an alkaline diet, use digestive enzymes, drink lots of non-chlorinated water, and get lots of rest. My TCM continually warns me about over doing it..to rest more and try to spend time doing things that relax you and make you happy. She keeps telling me to watch funny movies and laugh. It makes sense since most illness is caused by stress of one form or another. I try to be in bed by 10 every night, which helps, too.
 
I think Danie offered some of the best dietary advice here. Using the millet and quinoa to supplement the diet with has really saved me. I've been adding cut up apples or pears to them and sprinkling cinnamon and stevia into it for extra flavor and sweetening. Stevia, btw, is supposed to be very good for the stomach and gut. And I would highly recommend poaching any meat or fish you might eat...eliminating any additional fat that may cause your stomach to act up. For the time being...forget the butter, too. For the first while be really gentle with your stomach. As it heals then you can slowly reintroduce the things you'd like to eat. But go slow. Give your stomach a chance to rest and heal.
 
Do you have a juicer or a blender? I've been juicing and found it actually soothes my stomach. My brother-in-law makes juice just by blending the fruit with some filtered water. He says he notices it makes his acidic stomach feel better, too. And it's an easy way to get additional nutrition and calories into your body especially if you don't feel like eating. If you don't have a juicer or blender...see if you can borrow one from someone for the time being.
 
I'm not sure what else I can tell you, but this is a start.

Imalukatic:

Thanks so much for all the good advice. I am trying the alkaline diet. I have bought alot of good veggies and fruit, i even had the millet for breakfast with strawberries and bananas, didn't love it - but I didn't feel worse for it too!, that's a good thing. And I believe you are right, have to do things that make me happy, it's very important. As for the chicken, turkey and fish - I will poach whatever fish I eat and I'm gonna try and stay away from the chicken and turkey. And Butter, thanks I didn't even think of staying away from that, so addicted to butter.

 

It's a good start. I really, really appreciate your help as well as Danie's.
