Hello Camelot...welcome to healingwell.
I am sorry you are feeling so lousy!!! I am confused as to the kind of pain you are seeking help on. Are you talking upper abdominal pain?
Here are some tips on making GERD pain less...I am not sure if this is what you are looking for...
Avoid certain foods which trigger highly acidic digestive conditions such as citrus fruits, spicy foods and heavy dairy foods. These are harder to digest and can lead to an over production of acid in your stomach. Eating late at night is also something that should be avoided, as the instant you lay down to go to sleep, the only thing keeping digestive acids out of your esophagus is your lower esophageal sphincter (LES), which will open to allow gases produced during digestion to escape (when you burp) and if you are lying down, this ‘burp’ will likely be an acid bath.
Foods to avoid are...
citrus fruits such as oranges, lemons, and grapefruits. These foods are high in acids and can cause heartburn. More acid in your stomach means a greater chance of painful and debilitating heart burn. Tomatoes and cranberries should also be avoided for the same reasons.
Foods that are high in fat content should also be reduced, as should dairy. These heavy foods take much longer to digest, produce more gas during digestion and require more acid to do the job.
Avoid caffeine in all of its forms. This means no less coffee, tea and soda! Coffee and soda are especially acidic in nature and can lead to serious heartburn complications.
Don’t overeat! More stomach real estate taken up by food means less room for digestive acids and a higher risk of reflux.
I hope these are the kind of suggestions you are looking for here!!!
If I haven't answered your questions, please, don't hesitate to tell me that I am way off track...LOL.
