Howdy--I have reflux, but thought my pains (under ribs, mostly on the left), back chest, etc., were from IBS, since I sometimes have loose stools. Anyway, since an IBS diet isn't much different re what to avoid than an anti-reflux one, I just added in O-T-C gas relief stuff, used a heating pad on painful areas & am currently finishing up a series of visits with a female chiropractor who feels some misalignmenents in my spine (shown on X-Rays) were pressing on digestive area nerves. THe gas is way better, but now my reflux is kicking up again. Ah well....
As far as weight, I'm a skinny with reflux.
