I would like to know what food really triggers the pain; I know I should stay away from Pizza, Pasta, Chocolate and Sodas. I like to chew cinnamon gum after my meal, is that ok? I heard a quarter of lemon mix with water is good for acidity, is it true?

 

Thank you

Hi heartburner...
With everyone i know with gerd we are all different.. Cinnamon gum upsets my husbands gerd yet it will calm others gerd.. It just depends... Sodas calm mine but dont most people....I avoid pizza, pasta with tomatoe sauce but can eat it with oil and pamersan cheese... chocolate does not bother my gerd. I stay away from mexican or anything spicy at all... my diet is more limited cause i have crohns too. so i can not remember what i avoided because of gerd except what is listed.. Sorry I could not be more help..

for me, I can not stand oj but can eat an orange. must be very careful with tomato sauce too, some are ok. Had some shrimp with sauce for the holidays and the reaction was very painful. Lower caffeine. If anything bothers you, consider it suspicious and avoid it if possible. DO NOT EAT AT NIGHT.

I would stay clear of foods with acid as in tomatoes that was the worst for me and even though i near enough can eat most things with taking nexium i still cant eat tomato or citrus, i cant eat oranges or juice so i take a vitamin suppliment to compensate. everyone is different though , bananas the ripper they are the higher the acid i can only eat them when they are green skinned. trial and error and the food diary helped me sort out what triggered mine, as above DONT EAT AT NIGHT.
WILL POWER to stay away from foods you love but give u GERD its tough but you can do it and you get used to not having it.

Wishing you good health

celticlass, what kind of vitamin supplement are you taking?  is it organic vitamin C (most vitamin C's have a ton of acid so isn't it important to make sure that you pick a brand that doesn't have a lot of acid in it?)
