Re: Does caffeine and orange juice make your reflux worse?
Some people can still handle the caffeine and orange juice with reflux. Most can't.
My Gastroenterologist gave me a list of foods to avoid when I was diagnosed and the caffeine, OJ and tea were all on the list.
Most types of teas have components in them them that can loosen your lower esophageal sphincter which can allow acid to come up.
Maybe you could try one or the other at a time to see if you have symptoms with one more than the other.
If your symptoms are really bad, you may want to avoid all of them.
At my worst with my acid reflux symptoms, I drank water and soy/almond milk only.
