ouch, painful intestinal acid & gas

aarrgghhh.

I've suffered acid reflux at different times in the past ten years. I know the drill--go easy on caffeine, chocolate, and anything that's rich or contains a lot of acid. I was on meds for a while, but of course now I'm trying to avoid that. And I hadn't even had much of a problem with it recently.

Last night I got the worst attack ever. All I can figure is, it might have come on because of the big glass of orange juice I drank earlier in the day. It was burning and I could feel the trapped gas. All I wanted to do was burp and I couldn't, LOL. I resorted to my chewable antacids and it finally calmed down after a few hours. But if anyone knows of a more natural remedy, of course I'd be all ears (or eyes, anyway, in this case).

Thanks,
Lori

Try some chewable acidophilus in the morning.
I take garlic in pill form and it gives me severe gas. If I chew 1-2 tablets of acidophilus an hour or so before taking the garlic, it really does help.... I use Natures Bounty purchased at CVS.
