Isnt this gerds thing a real trip?
People that dont have this condition, really dont understand. They think its just heartburn!
I get spasms too....I feel like my esophagus is squeezing. Usually after I eat, but it doesnt always have a rhyme or reason to these symptoms.
The whole alkaline/acid diet thing confuses me. I checked on an online table today and found out that tomatoes and oranges are alkaline...Hmm....Now there is no way I can eat tomatoes. I jsut dont get it sometimes.
And pasta is acidic. Now, I have no problem eatting pasta unless it has tomato sauce on it. So, I am not sure why, this doesnt make sense to me at all.
What I have found that agrees iwth me when Im feeling bad is macaroni and cheese...but, if you go by the alkaline acidic tables, both of those are acidic. So, Im not sure if you want to go that route.
I also eat yogurt inbetween meals if Im feeling hungry at all. Ive had this gerds condition for abaout 2.5 months now. I am able to eat a bit larger amounts of food now than at first. But Im still not feeling 100%, and not sure if i ever will again.
I have heard people drinking milkshakes when their gerds is acting up. I guess it is all trial and error to see what works for you.
I know I havent been much help...but at least you know you are not alone.
Good luck to you.
