Re: Acid reflux help me

What you describe sounds like acid reflux. You need to see a doctor and get some treatment. In the meantime you could try some lifestyle changes. Weight loss helps, by encouraging the muscular valve at the lower end of the gullet to remain shut rather than lie open.
Raising the head of the bed by 5-10cm employs gravity to keep stomach contents where they should be when you are lying down.

Avoidance of late meals also prevents food and other digestive juices, such as bile, from refluxing and causing just as much bother as acid.

Some people find particular foods give them more reflux than others – you need to experiment a bit to find what you should avoid. I'm keeping a food diary. Food and drink commonly reported to trigger symptoms includes fizzy drinks, spicy foods, high-fat foods, citrus fruits, peppermint, tomatoes, garlic and onions. Caffeine in coffee, tea and cola and theobromine in chocolate have been reported to worsen symptoms, and alcohol and excessive amounts of vitamin C (from supplements) can also increase acid secretion. Chocolate and caffeine are definitely triggers for me.

Probiotics for reflux, as there is some suggestion they might be helpful. Eating smaller more frequent meals.

Dear Whymeagain;

Your symptoms are consistent with LPR. It is not uncommon to feel stinging/burning in your sinuses and to have your ears feel full. I have that occasionally.

Are you on medication?
