Hi,
Could anyone tell me please? When you get the chest pain with gerd is it made worse by burping? As in straight after a burp in the pain then much worse? Just trying to figure my chest pain along with a thousand other problems! Many thanks

lion00, I think that sometimes it hurts more after I burp, but usually there is no correlation for me. burping and chest pain are two symptoms of gerd.

Try not to inhale too much air when you're eating. Chew slowly with your mouth closed. Don't drink liquids while eating (well, unless you have to), drink afterwards. Make sure you don't drink anything carbonated, that will definitely encourage burping.

Danie, speaking of not eating liquids when eating, I meant to ask you a question about that...You said not to drink water while eating so that it won't remove the DGL coating...So, I was wondering, what if your meal is soup??  You listed a soup recipe yourself so I wasn't sure how you could eat it if you say that you shouldn't have liquids after taking the DGL...

That's the reason you dissolve the DGL in your mouth 20 minutes before you eat, it needs that much time to take effect coating the esophagus.  Someone researched this and it looks like they came up with that time frame.

The soup recipe I posted is very thick with vegetables, there's not that much broth.  I don't think it matters much though even if it's a broth you eat with something in it (for example, chicken soup) take the DGL and then have it.  It's not like you just eat soup everyday. 

The main reason to limit the drinking is to avoid taking alot of air into your system.

 

 
This is informative even though it's directed at pregnant women.

Thanks, I do drink an awful lot everyday. I can't eat a meal without drinking. I didn't know if what i was sufering from was Gerd or not as there's loads going on. But I'll give it a go stopping the drinks with meals and see if it helps. I actually don't burp that often though. I've been getting chest pains and i just happened to burp and this made the pain worse, but I didn't really feel the need to burp. My pain is in the centre mainly just under the bone and can spread across my breasts, mainly under the left one. It's quite a sharp pain and it feels like I have bra on thats way too tight.. My GP seems to think I had pleurisy but I'm not so sure anymore as it's still there, and my flu and other symptoms have gone.
