GERD and drinking water

I've heard some people complain that their GERD or Acid Reflux gets so bad that they can't even drink water. Still, for all medical things, not drinking enough water is a bad thing. How do people who can't drink water because there GERD is so bad keep from getting dehydrated?

Re: GERD and drinking water

I've never had problems with water and I had severe reflux. In fact, I drink lots of water daily. Everyone is different though.

Re: GERD and drinking water

I'm sure they drink the water, but it's uncomfortable doing so. One of my worst spells, before I was diagnosed, there was nothing I could eat or drink without getting heartburn. I still drank water and tried to stick with a liquid or soft diet, but would still get heartburn to some degree.

Wakkochic,

What ended up happening? Did you stay like this until you got on a medication?

Re: GERD and drinking water

my flare ups come in waves.. that worst period lasted about a week. It was within a few weeks that I started on meds. I haven't had a period as bad as that one since being on meds, but every now and then I go for a few days where I get it no matter what.

Re: GERD and drinking water

I don't think that is very common to the point where people would stop drinking water anymore than they would stop eating entirely. You also get water in fruit, veggies, and other liquids.

Re: GERD and drinking water

Water doesnt affect my reflex and i have GERD. Mine isnt all that severe though. My mom on the other hand doesnt have Acid reflex too bad but drinking any water at night gives her really bad heartburn. She has discovered that if she puts a tiny bit of diet(blood sugar problems) sprite in her glass of water doesnt give her heartburn and she can still stay hydrated before bed.

Note water doesnt do this to her at all during the day..
only in the evening and night.

Not sure why but thought i would add that.
