Curious to hear how many other suffer with this? I will say I am not as bad as most people. Last time it hit me was January at the start of the New Year. Then again today. So I managed to go close on 11 months without it. Which is good when you consider it used to come on every month or so up to last year. It is probably the one thing that always hit me worst of all. I don't like what is out there to take for it. I find nothing helps. If anything it can bring on other things if I do take anything for it. So what do others take? How often does it hit other people? With me I say I always just have to ride it out. It normally passes after a few days and that would normally be it for a month or two. Kind of surprised me when it came on today. Though I do link it to the time of the year. I hate this time of year. It has been hitting me in waves for the past few hours. Like a wave of acid will sweep through my body. Can also put me off eating much. Hard to put food into a stomach that is like this at the moment. I know there are a lot of over the counter things you can buy. My issue with them? They stop the acid in your body. So we assume ' great ' they are working. But what do we need to break food down when we eat it? Acid. If you take something to stop the acid in your stomach / body, when you eat, it creates another problem. Food does not digest like it should. At least for me anyway. The food simply just sits there in my stomach. Will come out in the end. Toilet wise. Which is not nice at all. Hence I prefer to ride it out and put up with it for the few days it will last.
But let us hear your acid reflux stories. You might do something that works wonders for you. Something others have never heard of. I know others call it GERD. But as I don't get it as bad as others I always refer to it as just acid reflux. Some people can suffer daily. I can't even begin to imagine what that must be like. Few days of it seems like hell to me.
So write away. Share your stories. Good or bad.
