I just wanted to share my story so far, just incase other people have the same symptoms, etc.
I've had Acid Reflux for around 2 years now, I've never had heartburn ever, but i've had all the symptoms of my stomach burning and my throat really burning, I also had the whole "Stomach gurgling" and a lot of "gas" stuck inside my stomach that even when i managed to let out a burp it relieved the pain for 10-15 second before coming back.
I finally decided to give up my medication because it wasn't working (worked for around 3 months before it didn't work any more) and try out some of these home made remedies, I picked up a bottle of "Cider Vinegar" from my local store and put two teaspoons of cider vinegar into 0.2L (8 oz) of water, sipping the drink over a period of 6 hours (one in the morning, one in the middle of the day time)
Also, having green tea after food to help digest and clear out anything bad helped too, I'm now in my second day of doing this and i feel absolutely AMAZING, I still have reflux but because of the cider vinegar, it's not causing much pain any more, I suggest trying this method out and see if it works for you.
Also, i suffer with Anxiety and making my self believe that this method actually works is removing my anxiety about never being able to get rid of my reflux.
Thanks for sharing the info and success! I hope it cont's for you & I plan to give it a try too.
I have just recently discovered I have a problem with LPR (not diagnosed yet, my own research). I DON'T HAVE HEARTBURN, just had occasional irritated throat & crackling voice....figured it was allergies/pollens. In the last few weeks, suddenly I developed occasional tummy burning & my throat got really bad!!! In a matter of days I got restriction when I swallowed as well. I plan to have it checked out now as I was shocked how bad & sudden it was. I don't wish it on anyone. I really don't like taking meds but when I felt the restriction I felt I didn't have a choice & had to do something...especially reading about the esophagus problems that could develop. I have been taking Prilosec OTC, however 1 was not enough & I am taking one in the am (try to do w/o sometimes as my problem is worse during the night) and 2 at night (a friend's mother has recently gone thru the same problems & between her & what I have learned on these forums, etc I knew this was an ok dose to do). I will try your recommendations as well. I will say I think it's important to use digestive enzymes when you eat as the meds reduce the acids needed for digestion. Hope your program cont's to work well & thanks again.
been taking apple cider vinegar for the last few days. my symptoms have seemingly got worse (have a constant burning sensation at the back of my throat). going to give it a few more days before i call the remedy a dud (for me).
