yeah The pain for me is most times around the centre of my chest and sometimes higher. It doesn't burn (wish it did) it hurts deeply for a few seconds, like there's something in my chest that shouldn't be there. As I wrote previously, it hurts, then it stops, then I burp, still burping too much after months on Nexium. One day I counted, over 60 times of burping though on the average probably over 20 times. So every time I need to burp, it hurts, it stops hurting, then I burp.
Previously I'd burp about once a day!
Plus my throat feels like it's slightly blocked. IF I eat often, even if just a small amount, it seems to settle whatever it is in my throat. Plus I carry water around 24/7 and drink often.
If work is stressful, the pain is worse the next day. Probably nerves... darn.
Have to settle my nerves to settle this things I guess.
Blessings and get better everyone!!

I have exactly the same symptoms, I was taking protonix before it helps but also gives you a lot of headache so I switched to Zantac and seems like it is working. I am also drinking a quarter lemon mix with water with each meal, it helps me digest the food without any pain.

HeartBurner,

Why don't you try using the DGL licorice, it seems to work (NATURALLY) like Zantac and you won't have the bad side effects of a drug. Maybe you can try it. I know it healed me :)

Good luck.

Hello cool
I read that citrus makes reflux worse? I love lemons and oranges though years ago I discovered, if I eat oranges daily I ache all over (weird hey).
I was having very little lemon in water instead of tea and the reflux got worse so I stopped.
I'm checking out that site thank you HeartBurner. I just love licorice... and anything sweet - though lost 5 kilos with 11 more to go
I'll see if our Health Food Shops or chemists sell DGL licorice!
Did you know you can't take Valium with reflux it makes it a lot worse... darn. Dentist visit soon ahhh.
Gees I need to relazzzzzz.

DANIE,

I have already ordered DGL from Puritan, hopefully I can get rid of Zantac now.

HB,
If you don't see relief with 2 tablets (remember, 20 minutes each time you eat and at bedtime) take 3.
Let me know how you feel after a few weeks. Give yourself that much time.
Good luck :)

Danie, so you were taking 2 tablets before meals but then 3 at bedtime?  i thought you had taken 3 before meals too (it must've been someone else who said that then).

I tried 3 today each time.  ihope that wasn't overdosing.

Hi FriendlyGal...I don't think you can OD on the DGL..I started by taking 3 each time and have lessened it down to 2 now that I am doing better.  Sometimes, if I am having a bad day I will increase again to 3....I am not sure what Danie is doing, but this is how it has worked for me.  Danie is the one that really "inspired" me to start the DGL.  I am working on the alkeline diet, but I still have good days and bad days (mostly good lately).  I have had problems with my stomach since I was 14, I am pretty excited about the good days tongue .  Take Care!  TT

TT, that is awesome that you are doing so well.

I am thinking now that I have been refluxing bile and/or other gastric juices. Because I am very backed up (constipated) and therefore don't sleep at night.

Maybe that is why it is taking a very long time for the DGL to work for me.

I take 3 tablets and they never work for me.
I just posted in the IBS forum today. Maybe they will have some answers for me regarding bloating and constipation. I am tired of this!
